    Why ignore tattoos of ancient Britons and European tattoos, when Britons have also been tattooing themselves for thousands of years, and when the oldest known tattoo belongs to Otzi The Iceman mummy found on the border between Austria and Italy? His date to between 3370 and 3100 BC.

      I think the point of some tattoos or some cultural tattoos.. is that you are suffering for art or a symbol.

      Hjwah hh yeah so it’s a tattoo replacement not an actual tattoo. Henna has been used in my country since ages and I can surely say it’s not a tattoo.
