This ambitious lecture spans six continents and nearly 7000 years from the Chalcolithic period until the invention of the electric tattoo machine. It explores various cultures’ applications, rituals and semiotics trying to understand a rich body of evidence for the origins of tattooing deciphered through a prism of separate development versus cultural diffusion.
