Autism Awareness Month & Heartfelt Tattoos

Autism Awareness Month & Heartfelt Tattoos

Hello Studio 21 family! Here we are in April welcoming the warm Las Vegas sun to show it’s face. April just happens to be Autism Awareness/Acceptance month. Our studio has had numerous opportunities to help our clients symbolize that someone special who has been diagnosed with Autism in the form of a tattoo. Some popular images, but not limited to, include a “puzzle piece” or a “rainbow infinity symbol”.

Just a few facts about Autism. Autism affects all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Early intervention affords the best opportunity to support healthy development and deliver benefits across the life span. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. People with ASD often have problems with social communication and interaction, and restricted or repetitive behaviors or interests. People with ASD may also have different ways of learning, moving, or paying attention. Autism can affect the whole body and is more prominent in boys than girls. Usually diagnosis is common around 3-4 years of age.

Our artists here at Studio 21 are experienced at consulting with clients regarding tattoos with deep, emotional meanings. Sometimes it’s been a drawing that was created by the child. Maybe a signature? We once had a client represent his atypical children with “Lego Superhero”. Whatever you come up with to represent the journey, our studio has capable artists available to make it happen. Call the studio or set up a free consultation to go over your thoughts and ideas to make your personal and meaningful tattoo.
