Tattuesday: Fun Facts About Tattoos

20140226-011241.jpg

Tattoos have become more and more popular through out the years, but where did tattooing come from and what’s so cool about it? Let’s find out!

The oldest known form of tattoo was found on a 5,300 year old iceman mummy. The tattoos in this man’s tribe signified great events that occurred during manhood.

Apparently in ancient times, tattooing was a sacred profession, and even though it may not be presented as so today, it still takes years of apprenticeship and skill to master the profession.

Tattooing penetrates 3 to 5 layers of skin…only just scratching the surface.

Did you know that there is such a thing as a glow in the dark tattoo?! How cool is that?

And for a last fun fact, there are such things as cosmetic tattoos. People can get tattoos of eyebrow shading, lip liner, and even eye liner. No more having to worry about putting make-up on!
