An Unreliable History Of Tattoos

The tattoo is an art form, a practice... for some, a ritual. Its history is long and colorful, dating to the Neolithic, when our ancestors marked their bodies with symbolic lines derived from a carbon paste. Today, those same markings can be made on entering the neon parlors that line our cities. Maybe it's time to stop taking them so seriously! Loosely based on fact, cartoonist / satirist Paul Thomas delves into the history of the Tattoo whilst concocting a healthy amount of hilarious fiction along the way.
