Ings and commoners. Sailors and prisoners. Tribesmen and sweethearts. All have shared one thing: the art of the tattoo. Evidence from ancient Egypt, Greenland, Siberia, and New Zealand shows how truly global the tattooers art is and how old. In fact, tattooing had existed for 1000's of years before Englands Captain Cook encountered it in the South Pacific in 1769. Merchant and naval seamen soon spread the art to Europe and America. But while its meaning has varied from people to people and from place to place, tattooing has most often served as a sign of social status, as a mark of ones passage through life, or simply as a way to beautify the body.
