Originally, the term tattoo was Polynesian and derived from the Polynesian word tatau meaning drawing.
Tattoo body art developed at different places on earth and at the same time within different peoples.The oldest tracks of tattoos could be found on the hands and feet of a 7,000 year old mummy in Northern Chile.
But tattoos always had different functions and meanings.
This is why every artwork is as unique as the person wearing it.
