Cave Painting Tattoo

Given how many mummies and ice-men and “primitive” people we’ve unearthed covered head to toe with wonderful tattoos that would win awards at even today’s tattoo conventions, let alone whatever body art celebrations they had ten thousand years ago, it’s surprising to me that we don’t see more neolithic-inspired tattoos. On that note, I’m in love with this cave painting-inspired tattoo by André Cruz in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The motif works so nicely, and not just because I suspect that culturally there is a strong crossover between early cave painting and early body markings when it comes to the history of the human experience.
