The History Of Tattoo's

The known history of tattoos goes back over 5000 years. If you don't know the word tattoo comes from it comes from the Polynesian word "ta" which means to strike something and from the Tahitian word "tatau" which means to mark something.

In 1991 a 5000 year old man frozen in ice was found in a glazier in Austria and he was perfectly preserved. And guess what he had several tattoo's.In fact he had 57 tattoo's. So we know for a fact that tattoo's have been around for at least 5000 years.

And the famous European Mummies that were found in 1948 in Siberia all had tattoo's. In fact some of the most beautiful tattoo's ever seen. Some of the tattoo's were in such fine detail that modern tattoo artists would have a hard time duplicating the tattoo's on a living human today. And these mummies were said to have lived over 3000 years ago.

The Second World War brought about a huge amount of sailors returning home from the war with tattoo's on their arms and before long the modern tattoo industry. Now you see tattoo parlors everywhere and more and more people are getting tattoo's today.

And tattoo's have always been a big thing in American prisons. Prisoners tattoo each other with their girlfriends names and also tattoo's of their gang affiliation. Some of them tattoo teardrops below their eyes and this means that they have killed another person.

Back in the early days of the circus in the United States many circuses had tattooed men or tattooed women in their side shows. One famous tattooed woman was Annie Frank in the late 1930's in Germany. See a post card of her from that era over to the right there.
