Despite the illusion of modern trends, tattooing and piercing are ancient practices that have been a part of human culture for thousands of years. Body modification, because of its permanence, remains a deeply personal form of expression in modern society. It has been used throughout human history as a status symbol, amulet, declaration of love or religious beliefs, adornment, and in some instances, even signs of punishment. The earliest evidence for tattoos on a human body is from the famous Iceman who was found with tattoo patterns on his body and carbon-dated to be about 5,200 years old and from Egyptian female mummies dated to around 2,000 B.C. Likewise, evidence for piercings have been found in the earliest graves throughout the world.
