Publisher's Summary

Some think tattoos are the hottest new style to hit the scene. Are they really? This book details the long history of tattoos and the reasons people have made their mark with them. An outward sign of belonging, belief or beauty, tattoos have an appeal that crosses time and geography. But not everyone lives happily with a tattoo.
Tattoos is part of a non-fiction series Extreme Customs that will engage listeners of all ages. What do customs mean in a given culture? This high-interest nonfiction series takes a look at the origins, practices and meaning of body modification (piercing, scarring, even plastic surgery), tattooing, burial rites, food traditions (everything from scorpions to fermented shark meat), and fashions in clothing and hair decoration.
