The History of Tattooing

Tattoos stored in old mummified human remains reveal that tattooing has been practiced all over the world for many centuries. The Ainu, the indigenous people of Japan, traditionally had facial tattoos, such as Austroasiens. Nowadays, one can find atayales, seediq, truku saisiyat and Taiwan, the Berbers of Tamazgha (North Africa), Yoruba, Hausa Fulani and Nigeria and New Zealand Maori with facial tattoos. Tattooing was popular among certain ethnic groups in southern China, Polynesia, Africa, Borneo, Cambodia, Europe, Japan, the Mentawai Islands, Mesoamerica, New Zealand, North America and in South America, the Philippines, the Iron Age In Great Britain and Taiwan.

This body, with 61 tattoos, was found enclosed in the glacial ice in the Alps, and was dated in 3250 BC.
It is a myth that the modern renaissance of the tattoo comes from three voyages of James Cook to the South Pacific in the 18th century. Cook undoubtedly traveling and spreading the texts and images of them have brought greater awareness about the tattoo (and, As noted earlier, imported from the word “tattow” in Western languages), but the Europeans were tattooed long history. On his first voyage in 1768, his scientific and botanical expedition, Sir Joseph Banks, and the artist of Sydney Parkinson and many other crew members returned to England with tattoos, although many of them men had had preexisting tattoos. The banks was a highly respected member of the English aristocracy who had acquired his position with Cook by co sending with £ 10,000, a very large sum at the time. In turn, Cook brought with him a tattooed man Raiatean, Omai, who introduced King George and the English court. Subsequent visits, other members of the crew, officers, such as the American John Ledyard, to ordinary sailors were tattooed.
The first professional tattoo artist documented in Great Britain was established in the port of Liverpool in the 1870s in Great Britain, the tattoo was still largely associated with marine and minor or even criminal class, but from the decade of 1870 had become fashionable among some members of the upper classes, including royalty, and their high-end form could be a costly and sometimes painful process. A marked class division in acceptance of practice continued for some time in Britain.
