Extreme Tattoos

Extreme tattoos

The word "tattoo" was for the first time used by English traveler James Cook. He used this word in his report about his trip around the world in 1773. A little bit earlier Joseph Banks, a naturalist on Cooks ship, wrote in his diary: "Now I will tell you about how they put marks on themselves, that cannot be reversed. These marks state their traits and position in their society". The tattoo art has been practiced for centuries and has been used for decoration in tribes and had a cultural meaning. In our 21st century tattoos preserved their purpose. People use them to tell something to those who surround them. Some of them apply extreme tattoos, that can change their body appearance a lot.
