Tatoos

An ancient tribal art is today’s form of self-expression

When we Boomers were kids, if you had a tattoo it meant you were a tough guy, a sailor or a side show freak. Today every blonde teenage girl from suburbia has one (or more).

Where did this fetish come from? What is so glorious about ink that half the world has become a coloring book? A short history may provide some answers.

The word tattoo comes from the Tahitian “tatu” which means “to mark something.” It is claimed that tattooing has existed since 12,000 BC. Tattoos are found in every culture in the known world. Many of the recently discovered mummies have tattooed skin still in tact. Polynesian tattooing has a remarkably colorful (and painful) history.
