The discovery of human remains in New York and the sharp eye of a detective took a case to tattoo artists to help. Read the full story here.
Investigators are still trying to piece together what occurred and who this mystery woman was but the usage of the science and the knowledge of tattoo artists about tattooing and the customs of getting tattooed in different eras took this case a lot further than its beginnings.
Tattoo styles, go through phases, just like everything else. For example, on the West Coast of the United States, Polynesian tattoos are taking off despite their existence for centuries and cultural tradition in Polynesia. Americana and old school art is an instance of a style that was popular in different sub-cultures (military & bikers) and are now en vogue with tattoo enthusiasts from all walks of life.
For every two steps forward and two steps back, tattoos for the most part are enjoying a period where more acceptance is taking place.
While we don’t wish any ill will on anyone, one must admit that it is fascinating what our tattoos can say about us. Not only can they have a meaning into the individual lives we live, they can also speak to the greater movements that are in play in the world.
