Painful Tattoo Making Techniques – Sounds like a Stone Age Concept

Getting tattoo made on the body has become a cool thing for Gen-X. Over the last decade Tattoo’s have gained huge popularity among the young urban Indians. In India, getting name written on the arms has been an age old practice in the rural areas. That too, is tattoing. But off late the tattoo business has gone through a sea change. Urban Indians have not just limited tattooing on their arms, but they have tattoos in private as well as exposed parts of the body. And these are not just name tattoo; they are elaborate, artistic tattoos.

 

Origin of Tattoos

The word tattoo has its origins from the Polynesian word “Tatao”., which means tapping or marking something. The term tattoo was coined by Captain James Cook in the year 1769. So we can well imagine that the technique of tattooing is more than 100 years old. Captain James, coined the name tattoo after he met a few Tahitians during his voyage. Interestingly, he noticed that these people had decorated their bodies with beautiful, elaborate tattoos. Excavations have revealed that this tradition of tattooing has been a part of several ancient cultures. In the year 1992, a properly preserved body of a man was found in Alps (lying on the border of Austria & Italy). This man had around 58 tattoos on his body. According, to archeologist the corpse was almost 5000 years old. Tattoos have been found on the bodies of ancient Egyptian mummies as well. The Greeks & Romans used tattoos for identifying slaves & criminals.

Tattoo making techniques in Ancient times

This body art in the old days was done by piercing needles into the body. A sharp pointed comb was dropped into the lampblack and then inserted into the skin. Despite, being such a painful technique many people use to get their arms and other body parts tattooed. The tradition was popular in Tahiti and the surrounding European Islands. But over the years tattoo making techniques have evolved over the years.

 

Tattoo making in Modern times

Though, getting a tattoo made is still not painless, but over the years the pain involved in getting a tattoo made is significantly less. The procedure, exactly cannot be termed painful in the modern day. There are many factors that decide how painful the tattoo making process will be. Most importantly, the body part where the tattoo is being made will determine the magnitude of the pain. Areas such as the outer arms, outer legs, upper back and upper chest are not very painful for tattooing. Other areas such as the lower back, inside the arms, or legs, near elbows and knees, along the spine, along the ribs, the lower front torso are all considered to be more painful areas. However, modern day tattoo artists do not do any kind of insertion into the skin, hence; the procedure in some areas is next to painless.

Rihanna tattoo inspired by god

Rihanna tattoo inspired by god

Rihanna does need a formal introduction as almost everyone has heard of this very talented artist. Rihanna who happens to be a Barbadian recording artist as well as an actress has gained a lot of fan following at quite a young age. She is indeed a very talented singer and she has not one but many prestigious awards in her kitty. Almost every single sung by her tops the charts and becomes a sensation as soon as it is released. Other than her singing and acting talent Rihanna has also been in the news for her great dressing style as she is among the most well dressed stars that we know of. Along with her love for music Rihanna is also well known for her love for tattoos and she has many tattoos inked at various spots on her body.

This singing sensation has around twenty tattoos which are inked on different parts of her body such as hip, leg, shoulder, fingers and also inside her ears. The reason that Rihanna has so many tattoos is that she is a big fan of them and likes to get one every now and then. Each and every tattoo on her body has a specific meaning and some of them are also related and inspired by the almighty. Rihanna said that her tattoos all have spiritual meaning and significance and they bring her closer to the higher power.

 

For instance recently she got a tattoo of an Egyptian goddess which she dedicated to her late grandmother who died in July due to cancer. Other than that this talented singer also possesses a tattoo of an Egyptian falcon which is said to be connected with god. According to Rihanna her tattoos are her way to express her spirituality and every tattoo that she gets has a special meaning. Not many people get tattoos on or inside their ears but Rihanna got herself a star tattoo on her left year which definitely makes her stand out of the crowd. Apart from the three tattoos we discussed Rihanna also has tattoo of music notes on the ankle and a prayer in Sanskrit language inked on her hip. A Pisces sign can be seen behind her right ear she has ‘love’ written on her finger. Rihanna sure adores tattoos and that is why she has tattoo almost on her entire body and some of them as she says are god’s inspiration.
