Tribal Tattoo Encyclopedia

Tribal Tattoo Encyclopedia

By Radomir Fiksa



The Tattoo Encyclopedia provides the first comprehensive overview of tribal tattooing across history, continents, and ethnicities. Each group, clan, or community that practiced tattooing had its own places where people prepared for tattooing or where tattooing was performed. Tattoo sessions were accompanied by music, songs, or other rituals. They had tattoo artists and their assistants. Of course, they used various tattoo tools to carry and apply the designs. Last but not least, they also used different ingredients to obtain the inks for the tattoos. For all this, the different communities had their own names and terms, in their own language or dialect, and it is these terms, including descriptions, often already lost in history, that this book presents.
