Tattooing is the art of illustrating the body with permanent images and empowering them with energies, which are generally defensive in nature. In order to apply inks, it takes a physical manifestation of power, which can only be done through the channeling of ka energy. Since ka is mastered through the study of kata, monks are the sole practitioners of the art of tattooing. At some point in the study of kata, a monk will be able to harness the energies of his or her tattoos to use as armour, though this is only possible if the monk wears no other armour, including great robes. Thus, the legend of naked fighting monks has emerged. Of course, non-monks often seek out tattoos for their secondary powers as well as for aesthetics, making the art of tattooing a lucrative profession for monks.
