Tailsmans of Protection

Tattoos are a sacred form, a magic of the old shamans passed down to brave souls. If you’re bit by the bug it will consume your guts and spit out waterfalls, just like anything. 


Just Get the things you love. Anarchy and Peace. Fuck it dude; this might be the only thing that will last forever y’know? It’s my body. I’m gonna do whatever I want with it. 


Tattoos are a form as old as the ancient humans. Since humans have existed, people have been marking/ modifying their bodies. For medicinal purposes, to align with religious or spiritual beliefs or just for pure ornamentation. 

Tattooing was a deep part of cultures spanning all over the world and somewhere along the way became mistranslated as uncivilized; something for savages, criminals and prisoners. 


 In the Americas, a lot of Native tribes had a practice of tattooing. They would use bone and the charcoal from fires as ink and hand poke it in. It was a ritualistic thing. You would get tattooed to commemorate different landmarks in life. When you became and “man” or a “woman” you would get your first, when you got married, when you went to war. The higher up you were in the caste system the more intricate tattoos you had. The kings and queens of those times probably had some really crazy shit. Sadly this was something that was forgotten about and erased from history when the Spaniards and other colonials came to the Americas. They considered it to be uncivilized; they called the natives savages and took their culture from them. You see a lot of depictions of natives from that time period as having warpaint on them, but there was not a lot of notation of the tattoos they had and were probably misconstrued as warpaint to perpetuate the propaganda that they were a dangerous peoples who needed to be killed off and or enslaved.
