Tattoos and body piercing, a Eurasian practice since Neolithic times, date back in history more than 5,000 years. Some tribal tattoos were and are still perceived as a sign of beauty, class, to ward off illness and disease, rites of passage, symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, sexual lures and marks of fertility, and even talismans and protection.
Today, a growing number of people are choosing tattoo and piercing body art in the name of art and self-expression.
