Tattoo News - May/June 2017
If you enjoy Pacific tattoo articles, there's a good one online at
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2204140/Cook-Islands-rediscover-lost-art-Pacific-tattoo.html I think you'll enjoy it!
A general overview of the history of tattooing in the United States is online at http://time.com/4645964/tattoo-history/ Another brief historical overview is at http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0412/online_extra.html
While looking for good online material, I ran across this TED video on the history of tattoo. It's actually quite accurate and very good, despite the odd animation. It does get complicated (and often quite expensive) to get legal permissions to use photos & images, so perhaps why the drawings. http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-history-of-tattoos-addison-anderson
