A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting ink into the epidermal layer of the skin.
History of Tattoos
The word tattoo is derived from two words one from the Polynesian word ‘ta’ which means striking something and the Tahitian word ‘tatau’ which means ‘to mark something. The use of tattoos is recorded to have begun thousands of years ago and its history is as varied, colorful and diverse as the people who carry them. According to some estimation the history of tattoo began over 5000 years ago.
Very First Tattoo:
The first tattoo was created unintentionally. Someone with a small wound happened to rub it with a dirty hand that was covered with soot or ash. Once the wound had healed, they realized that the skin had healed over the ash and that the mark became a permanent addition.
Tattoos in Bronze Age:
In 1991, a five thousand year, the frozen body of old tattooed man ‘ötzi the ice man, was discovered on a mountain between Austria and Italy. This is the best preserved corpse of that period ever found. There were 57 tattoos on his skin. The position of the tattoos suggests that they were probably applied for therapeutic reasons (treatment of arthritis).
