Tattoos is about the human society. Each person already has their life job picked out for them. The day you turn 10 you get a tattoo on the side of your hip that says what you are going to be for the rest of your life. Amy's family is all older than her. Her brother is the oldest and when he turned 10 his tattoo was a doctor. His parents were so proud of him and treated him way better than Amy and her sister. But when Amy's sister turned 10 she got the tattoo for a singer and again her parents were so excited. When it came time for Amy to get her tattoo, it never showed up. Her family disgraced her. They treated her like she wasn't even part of the family. So she runs away to her best friend's house and starts living there. When they turn 17, they start getting chased. The government wants to know why Amy doesn't have a tattoo.
