Intro To History 101: First Tattooed Man

Hello class this will be starting classes (series) for the history of tattoos, where they first came from, each culture's traditions, the tools and inks they had used for, etc. The first topic we are going to dive in is ‘Who was the first person to have been tattooed.` Any questions please wait until the lesson is over and comment down below.
For thousands of years people have been marking their bodies with permanent designs. There was a lot of meaning behind tattoos back then; they had served as status, religious beliefs, love, and even damnation. In fact, the oldest human who had been tattooed is believed to be from 3370 BC and 3100 BC, roughly over 5,000 years, on this ‘Iceman’ he got his nickname from where he was found. 
The ‘Iceman’ was first discovered in September 19th, 1991 by two German tourists on the Fineilspitze in the Ötztal Alps on the Austrian–Italian border. The naturally preserved and mummified man was named Otzi, he has a total of 61 tattoos that varied in different shapes and designs placed all over his body but the most tattoos he had were located on his legs. Archeologist Konrad Spindler  studied Otzi’s body and after close examination the ink that was injected into his skin was made from soot and fireash; very clean haha.

Now there have been many different eras and ages throughout our entire history that have tattoos were used for different variables. During this time there has been about 50 discoveries of tattooed mummies and remains that have been discovered. Some locations were there have been records or human remains include but not excluding: Germanic and Celtic Tribes, Egypt, India, Mongolia, Philippines, and Greenland. Some of all these discoveries date back to 2300 BC but they all link to different periods of time through ancient history.

Now the end of this lesson will follow into nexts class on February 19th, 2020, so if need be you can always come back to this post for a brief summary!

As everyone knows Ancient Egypt was another major era that dressed themselves with intricate markings on their body. There was a practice that was exclusively just for females, mummies found with tattoos were usually dismissed by male excavators who assumed the women they found were of “dubious state”. They were brushed off as, what we call today, “dancing women.” Female mummies were buried as Deir El-Bahari in a location only associated with royals and elites. 

With further studies we knew one women was to be described as the “Royal Concubine” who was actually Amunet, a Priestess of the goddess Hathor at Thebes, was found to have a number of tattooed markings on her body, which show striking correspondence with the patterns depicted on Middle Kingdom faience figurines
Alright class we will pick everything back up on February 19th, 2020! Stay tuned for our next blog post next week “Aftercare: Piercing Edition!”

    I was a victim of a cryptocurrency investment scam and I lost 89,000 USD to a fake cryptocurrency investment platform. A few months ago, I was contacted by a forex trader to invest in his platform hoping I would make huge profits from my investments, this went on for some time and when it was time to withdraw my investments, I was logged out and I couldn’t access my Bitstockxchange account, I contacted them and they requested I pay 20% before I could access my wallet. I had invested all my retirement and life savings into this platform and was depressed for months until a friend of mine told me about Dark Web Online Hackers recovery company that can help me recover my money, I sent an email to Dark Web Online Hackers and they requested for some information, this company did a thorough investigation and was able to recover everything I lost, I’m truly grateful to Dark Web Online Hackers and I wish to recommend them to everyone who needs their services.

    Hello, my name is Jean Delon .
    I’m 37 years old from the United Kingdom.
    My family and I were left with nothing after falling prey to a cryptocurrency investment fraud that took $807,000 in USDT and Bitcoins from us. We were quite fortunate to stumble across a post about LOST RECOVER MASTERS, a cryptocurrency and funds recovery organization with extensive cybersecurity knowledge. Recovery Masters were able to recover all of our cash, and they were tracked down and reported to the right authorities using the information we gave. In my opinion, you should use Lost Recovery Masters to recover your cryptocurrency.
