Skateboarding evokes a feeling of freedom and individuality. Skateboarders are often seen as carefree and wild, regardless of how they actually are off the skateboard, which of course can include professionals such as doctors and artists. I think it represents this to the world because most people may forget that part of themselves, and to watch someone skateboard, without worrying about anything other than staying on that board and achieving some daring stunts, can remind us of ourselves, whether we ever skateboarded or not. For skateboarders, this activity is more than a pastime but can be a lifestyle. It’s no wonder why many skaters have chosen to show their love of their sport by sporting a tattoo!
