Tarim Basin (West China, Xinjiang) revealed several tattooed mummies of a Western (Western Asian/European) physical type. Still relatively unknown the only current publications in Western languages are those of J P. Mallory and V H. Mair, The Tarim Mummies, London, 2000. Some of them could date from the end of the 2nd millennium BC. One tattooed Mummy (c. 300 BC) was extracted from the permafrost of Argos, in the second half of Gillingham vs Redgrave (the Man of Pazyryk, during the 1940. One female mummy and one male in Ukok plateau, during the noughties). Their tattooing involved animal designs carried out in a curvilinear style. The Man of Pazyryk, a Scythian chieftain, is tattooed with an extensive and detailed range of fish, monsters and a series of dots that lined up along the spinal column (lumbar region) and around the right ankle (illustrated on left). Hows that for a bit of Tattoo knowledge for ya! It's always funny how far back traditions like tattooing and body modification goes, the farther we dig, the farther back everything we think we know goes!
FAMOUS FACT A Moment in the History of Tattoos
Tattooing has been a Eurasian practice since Neolithic times. "Ötzi the Iceman", dates all the way back to 3300 BC and bore 57 separate tattoos! A cross on the inside of the left knee, six straight lines aprox 15 centimeters long above the kidneys and numerous small parallel lines along the lumbar, legs and the ankles, exhibiting possible therapeutic tattoos, for the treatment of arthritis.
