Tattooing is a reflection of the basic human desire to decorate the body, and tattoos have held many different meanings throughout history. The practice has existed since ancient Egypt, and in our contemporary society has become a popular way for people of all ages to express themselves. Tattoo is a fascinating journey through the colorful world of this corporeal art form, via hundreds of fascinating photographs documenting the highly complex ritual tattoos of various subcultures, as well as the fantastic designs of modern tattoo artists.
