From time to time I like to share some historical tattoo- or body-mod-related content. In this case, I was browsing through old (as old as I could find, anyway) issues of academic and medical journals to see just what was being written about tattoos 150 years ago. What I found was this interesting read about a Greek pirate being (punitively?) tattooed over his entire body, palms and soles included. Sounds pretty harrowing.
