Entertainment: Tattoos: Not just another art form | tattoos, human, years : Ahwatukee Foothills News

Human beings have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years as status symbols, depictions of love, amulets, religious signs of faith, adornments and sometimes forms of punishment, according to Cate Lineberry, "Tattoos: The Ancient and Mysterious History," Smithsonian Magazine.

In 1991 researchers discovered a frozen mummy from the area of the Italian-Austrian border with tattoo patterns etched in his remaining flesh, according to Lineberry.

"Iceman" became known as the earliest example of human tattoo practices and was carbon dated at around 5,200 years old, she said.
