Is the birth of the tattoo still a big question mark unanswered? However, some scientists have uncovered tattoos from the skin of some frozen mummies dating back to about 3300 BC. Also in Egypt and Nubian (small kingdom located along the Nil River, in northern Sudan and southern Egypt), there is also a tattoo on the mummy dating back to 2000 BC. Historians believe that the birth of the tattoo may have come from the Greeks, the Old British and the Old Germans, etc.
Not only that, but the birth of the tattoo was discovered once more from Europe and Native Americans. In the file of explorer James Cook from the 1769 expedition to the South Pacific, there is a reference to the tattoo language Tahitian tattau, meaning “to mark”. However, in the period of European and American society at that time, tattooing was not yet developed, but it was considered a strange phenomenon.
In 1992, on the border area between Austria and Italy, a frozen body of a man was found 5,000 years old, with 58 tattoos on the body, the motifs are marks small dots, and some only lines.
