About Human Ashes In Tattoo Ink

Tattoos Serve To Decorate The Body




In America, many Indians tattooed their bodies, faces, or both. The usual technique was the simple ‘graver’, but some Californian tribes introduced the makeshift inks straight into the scratches and many tribes of the Arctic and Sub-Arctic, the majority of the Eskimos / Inuits, and some cities in eastern Siberia made pinprick tattoos, through the one strand of pigment (usually soot), was pulled under the skin. This example highlighting that the use of fire ashes put in a tattoo can be traced back to the originals concept and implementation of tattooing.


In Polynesia, Micronesia, and then parts of Malaysia, the pigment was punctured by using a tool in the form of a miniature rake. In Moko, a type of New Zealand Maori tattoo, flat slits were created in complex, curvilinear designs on the face by repeatedly striking them with a small bone tool into the skin.


In Japan, needles placed on a wooden handle are used for tattooing multicolored motifs, which in many cases cover a large part of the body. The Burmese tattoo is made with an instrument resembling a brass nib, with a slit tip and a weight at the top. Sometimes the pigment is rubbed into knife cuts (e.g., in Tunisia and between the Ainu of Japan and the Igbo of Nigeria), or the skin is pricked with thorns (Pima Indians of Arizona and Senoi of Malaya).


Gladly, modern tattooing has now adapted modern principles and machinery to replicate the original ‘ in / out’ piercing of the skin motion that has been used over thousands of years to puncture the skin and implement the pigment into the skin cells.
