Tattoos are no inventions of the modern era. The art of skin marking is much older. Tattooing in the Western world today has its origins in Polynesia, and in the discovery of “tatau” by eighteenth century explorers Bougainville and Cook. The Polynesian practice became popular among European sailors, before spreading to Western societies generally.
Tattooing has been a practice at least since around Neolithic times. Ötzi the iceman is probably the most famous human found with tattoos. Nowadays a lot of famous and important people like Bon Jovi, Robbie Williams, Sean Connery, Madonna wear tattoos.
Tattooing as a way of embellishing skin is not only a cult of the body and expression of individuality but also the exposure of personality and position in the traditional meaning.
At the international Tattoo Convention Berlin, you can not only admire pictures and get yourself tattooed, but also actively participate in our big competition, where even older tattoos will be valuated. We cordially invite everybody who has a tattoo to join our competition.
