So now a number of questions floating in my mind have left me wondering if tattoos take away or add to a black man’s sexual appeal.  Are women attracted to men because of the so-called bad boy appeal that tattoos exude?
I suppose the reason for getting tattoos varies as much as the tattoos themselves.  With the onslaught of people stepping into tattoo shops one might think this was something entirely new. My grandfather God rest his soul wore a tattoo of an American eagle on his arm.  He was not an athlete, rocker or thug.
Since tattoos have been around for quite a while I wonder why have they become such a big deal and in some cases taboo with some members of our community.  Could it be due to celebrities (especially rappers and athletes) wearing them more?  Could it be because people have chosen to wear tats in some places that are considered inappropriate such as the face and neck? In the end should we be concerned with brothers that to choose to wear tattoos as if they are personal accessories?
Whatever the case may be I am certain this is one argument that will continue to be a point of debate for years to come?
Not all skin on the body is the same and, therefore, will not take tattoo pigment the same.
In 2013, just 24 hours after tattoo artist Rouslan Toumaniantz met his girlfriend Lesya in Moscow, he had, with her consent, tattooed an alternate spelling of his name all over her face. From the mid-1960s to late-1980s, the Soviet Union imprisoned as many as 35 million people in prison camps. The second most tattooed person in the world is Tom Leppard (1934) from the Isle of Sky, Scotland. The most tattooed man in the world is Gregory Paul McLaren (1971), also known as Lucky Diamond Rich.
Some people have compared laser surgery to remove tattoos as little dots of hot grease being applied to the skin. Tattooing was introduced at Auschwitz in the autumn of 1941 and at Birkenau the next March. Archeologists have discovered tools in France, Portugal, and Scandinavia that were probably used for tattooing. The earliest known tattoo that represents something other than an abstract pattern is of the god Bes, the Egyptian god of revelry. The Greeks learned tattooing from the Persians and used tattoos to mark slaves and criminals so they could be identified if they tried to escape.
The oldest known description of tattoo technique with a formula for tattoo ink is found in Medicae artis principes (1567). While designs that apparently represent tattoos are seen on paintings of both men and women in Egyptian art and statues, all the tattooed Egyptian mummies discovered to date are female.
Across the world, even the smallest tattoos can have significance to the prison population. Though tattooing is prohibited in prisons, prisoners still manage to make tattoo machines out of electric shavers, needles, and guitar strings and ink reservoirs from the barrels of ballpoint pens.
While HIV could hypothetically be spread by tattoo practices, there are no reported cases of the disease being transmitted via tattoo application. While Popeye and Betty Boop were popular in the early 20th century among sailors, a popular image in the military is now the Warner Brothers cartoon character the Tasmanian Devil, or Taz. Copying someone’s tattoo custom design is considered unethical in the body art world. Winston Churchill’s mother, Lady Randolph Churchill, had a tattoo of a snake around her wrists, which she covered with a diamond bracelet at formal occasions.
Research shows that adults with tattoos are more sexually active than those without tattoos. During the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries tattoos were popular with English and Russian royalties.
Traditionally worn by sailors, the anchor shows that a seaman had sailed the Atlantic Ocean. Popular with women, its short life and beauty have become symbolic of youth and femininity.
Sometimes depicted as a cuddly, red, wicked cartoon or as a grotesque monster with horns and cloven hooves.
Used in both Eastern and Western tattoo art, symbolized wisdom, charm, immortality, and free thought. As the ultimate guardian angel, the Virgin Mary is the symbol of love, patience, and intercession.
Represent the two sides of a valley bisected by shadow and sunlight as well as the duality of the universe, the male and female, positive and negative, and heaven and earth. Archeological findings suggest that Stone Age people inked their skin using primitive equipment and natural dyes. The world’s first exhibition of a human being for entertainment finds tattooed slave Giolo, the famous Painted Prince, being shown at English carnivals. Captain Cook sets sail for the first of his three great voyages in which he discovers and chronicles native tattooing, stimulating interest in tattoos in Britain. Elaborately tattooed Prince Constantine joins Barnum’s Great Traveling Exposition, which inspires many young men to start tattooing. New York tattooer Samuel O’Reilly patents the first electric machine, making tattooing quicker, less painful, and more popular.


The Great Omi, an ex-Army major, visits London tattooer George Burchett to arrange his transformation into a wild circus attraction.
Texas singer Janis Joplin starts a craze for rock-n-roll tattoos, which helps bring down the curtain on the old school era.
As I mentioned, fact that Ankhesenamun magically reverts to having a round head in post-Amarna art, which counts against the notion. The article I posted offers evidence which I will post later, or you can check it out yourself. Personally it does not matter either way, as long his body is not covered with them.  But again this is solely my personal opinion, which of course has no bearing on what others choose to do with their body.
As a matter of fact tattoos have been worn for thousands of years.  It has been said that mummified bodies from different cultures have been discovered in different parts of the world. The frozen and preserved body of a man was located at the border of Austria and Italy, high up in the Alp Mountains. If a man tattoos himself for swag appeal, self-expression or just because it’s the-in-thing to do, should others really be concerned even when it does not affect them? Tattoos have become very popular and it’s nice to see other people that have the same interest. But much like grills, there are alot of men that had or wanted tattoos before the fad began.
Of that number, between 20 million and 30 million received tattoos while serving their time. The laser penetrates the skin and breaks up the tattoo pigments so that they can be carried away naturally by the body’s immune system. He has a black cross tattooed on the inside of his left knee, six straight lines on his lower back, and parallel lines on his ankles, leg, and wrists. He based his design on the autographic printer, an engraving machine invented by Thomas Edison. The marijuana leaf, the number 13, the 13th letter of the alphabet (M for marijuana) are popular as are birds (freedom or power), skulls, and other symbols of death, spiders, roses, snakes, and religious images. Other popular tattoos include Batman, Winnie the Pooh characters, and more adult images of artists R. As opposites play a key part in tattoo tradition, angels and cherubs are often inked along with devils.
Sailors who logged 5,000 miles at sea were traditionally entitled to ink a bluebird in celebration. Associated with Imhotep, an important physician who later became the god of healing and medicine.
Because it can inhabit both air and water, it can pass the power of both elements to the wearer. Her hand is known in the Islamic world to protect against the Evil Eye and acts as a sign of good luck. They are ideograms (similar to Egyptian hieroglyphs) where a single symbol can represent an entire concept, such as beauty. American circuses start touring in the 1800s and become centers of tattoo culture, as in Europe. The amusement park, once filled with popular tattooists such as Bert Grimm, has deteriorated, with the renowned Owen Jensen dying in 1976 after being stabbed in his own shop. 2010 quote:In this report, the evidence, mechanisms, and rationale for the practice of artificial cranial deformation (ACD) in ancient Peru and during Akhenaten's reign in the 18th dynasty in Egypt (1375-1358 BCE) are reviewed. I've seen Egyptian images of circumcisions being performed, but none of parents binding the heads of their infants. The practice of female circumcision has not been shown or proven though its practice in rural areas of Egypt as well as other parts of Africa make it probable if not likely. True than the elongated skulls of some Royals need not have been the result of artificial cranial deformation, and it was rare, it was still practiced.
I was going to ask about scarification, since it is seldom associated with Egyptian culture. In Nilotic-Sudanese cultures, women made scarification designs of a more quadrilateral shape on their bellies which spread and stretched like a net during pregnancy also.
Their tattoos may have showed off their male prowess or they may have been used to attract a female suitor. Other methods of tattoo removal include dermabrasion (sanding the skin), cryosurgery (freezing the skin), and excision (cutting away the tattoo with a scalpel and stitching up the wound). From then on, tattooing was virtually unknown in the Christian world until the 19th century. My main reason for doubting it is that the fact that though all the daughters of Akhenaten were shown with long heads, Ankhesenamun was later represented with a normal round head, for example in the images from Tutankhamun's tomb. The authors argue that insufficient attention has been given to the sociopolitical implications of the practice in both regions. Again, I never denied that head-binding was practiced, I just could never find any actual evidence before. Obviously the Amarna elongated-head sculptures somewhat resenble African-type head binding, which doesn't appear to overly flatten the borehead, unlike South American type.

As far as I know the situation has reversed, and now it is now primarily a tradition for Berber females. I'm not sure if the eye of Horus is meant to be an amulet or a tattoo, but there are definitely dots around the breasts and on the belly that appear to be tattooed. While evidence from ancient Peru is widespread and complex, there are comparatively fewer examples of deformed crania from the period of Akhenaten's rule. Not to my knowledge.Having mentioned circumsision I may as well broaded this topic out to include other 'body modifications'. Coptic Christians and Ethiopian Orthodox always insisted on male circumcision, unlike the Christian churches in Europe. Today however, we know that there have been bodies recovered dating to as early XI Dynasty exhibiting the art form of tattoo.
Nevertheless, Akhenaten's own deformity, the skull of the so-called "Younger Lady" mummy, and Tutankhamen's skull all evince some degree of plagiocephaly, suggesting the need for further research using evidence from depictions of the royal family in reliefs and busts. Some of the 18th dynasty mummies have quite large-gauge ear piercings, Nefertiti often being identified by two holes in the same ear.
Female circumcision (or FGM) seems to be a practice Egyptians have in common with other Africans especially Sudanese and Somalis, and across to central west Africa, where, for example, the Dogon practice it. The elongated shape of the skulls is due to hyperdolichephalic which is totally natural with no evidence of deformity. One of the more famous and written about mummies is that of Amunet, a priestess of the-goddess Hathor, at Thebes.
Following the anthropological review, a neurosurgical focus is directed to instances of plagiocephaly in modern medicine, with special attention to the conditions' etiology, consequences, and treatment. There is also a bust, I think from the tomb of aper-el, which appears to show streched ears. However the practice is also (regretably) common in parts of the Middle East, so it is not an exclusively African thing. The head band signifies a connection to the ancient Syrians or even Punt.As we know ancient Egypt was a melting pot but with Africans and Afro-Asiatics. Novel clinical studies on varying modes of treatment will also be studied, together forming a comprehensive review of ACD, both in the past and present.So cranial deformation was practiced in Egypt during the 18th dynasty.
Making the artwork you call stylized actually reliable which will ultimately aid in providing evidence for further research quote:Was head binding practiced in ancient Egypt to produce elongasted skulls? Only the Aper-el bust gives any clue that the practice was ever taken to the extremes witnessed elsewhere in Africa. Egyptian Christians usually have small crosses tattooed on their wrists, their Ethiopian co-religionists (again, especially females) tattoo their foreheads with rather big ones. Maiherpri also appears to have somewhat large streched lobes, that said, if I'm seeing right. I would guess that the custom also derives from times of Islamic invasion threat, and was originally a deterrant from forced conversion. These are the only races of men who practise circumcision, and these evidently practise it in the same manner as the Egyptians. This was one of the reasons that has led some Egyptologists to speculate a Nubian origin for the 17th and succeeding 18th dynasty. Of the Egyptians themselves however and the Ethiopians, I am not able to say which learnt from the other, for undoubtedly it is a most ancient custom; but that the other nations learnt it by intercourse with the Egyptians, this among others is to me a strong proof, namely that those of the Phoenicians who have intercourse with Hellas cease to follow the example of the Egyptians in this matter, and do not circumcise their children. It seems traces of tobacco and cannabis have also been found in Egyptian mummies, although these substances were supposedly only known in the New World.
Ancient Egyptian images of Libyan men often showed them with the type of tattoos that are now most commony seen on Berber and Bedouin women. I agree, but I need to do more research on the history of such tattooing to find out if other parts of the body were tattooed as well. Tattoos are also worn by Beja women of eastern Egypt and Sudan as well as many Ethiopian women. It's interesting that the tattoos were placed on the thighs and belly the same way scarification was among Nilotic women with a net-like pattern on the belly. Scarification was apparently also practiced by Egyptians found in mummies of certain dynasties and even in preydynastic mummies.
Ausar tells me both tattooing and scarification are still practiced in rural areas of Egypt today especially in the south.
Blackman in her book The Fellahin of Upper Egypt and also by by Henery Aryout Habib in his book The Egyptian Peasant.I believe the tattooing tradition comes from a very ancient Afrasiatic tradition while the scarification tradition comes from the Nilotic tradition.
