2500 year old Siberian mummy with tattoos

Recommended Posts

Inked up mummy news article.

You guys should really check out the actual news article. It's a lot of information and pictures where they recreate what they think the body looked like. It's a Siberian woman's body they discovered, with arm and finger tattoos, who they speculate was a healer or storyteller and . She was buried with 6 other men who were also tattooed. In Egyptian society they say that tattoos were a sign of social status. The more tattoos the longer you had lived and the higher in status you were. Looking at the tattoos I find it funny that these 2500 year old mummies had better tattoos than a lot of people I see out here on the street in modern day. I guess good taste really is timeless.

    • Nothing on hand, but it seems like a cool idea. 
    • Any cool pirannha tattoos out there? Please don't tell me "instagram" "google" "pinterest" or anything like that. I'm considered getting an outline of a piranha skull in lime green and dark purple (artist would be free to play with the idea) to symbolism me getting over my cancer (green and purple are the colors). Would love to see some inspirational pictures :)
    • I am experiencing the very same thing currently. Been searching all over to find out what and why. I found this and it is exactly what I’m experiencing. The only difference is I have quite a few tattoos and it is only happening with one and only on the first word. Weird it wouldn’t be the whole tattoo. I will be scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist for sure. This is very worrisome. My tattoo is about 6 months old and no issues up until 2 days ago. Crazy. I hate it.
