  6. Written on the Body: the Tattoo in European and American History
    The cover art for Written on the Body ("A Young Daughter of the Picts") shows a 16th-century picture of a pleasantly broad-hipped Celtic woman wearing a flower-print dress. Except that it isn't a flower-print dress: the woman is covered in botanical tattoos. It is just one example of the antiquity and ubiquity of tattooing in human culture, a topic that this volume tackles with impressive depth and range. This is a book that started out as a scholarly academic tome gathering together a variety of anthropological and cultural studies essays on tattooing from Classical times to the present day; but, as with many Reaktion books, it transcends its origins. True, a couple of the essays are couched in academic-speak--Juliet Fleming, for instance, pondering tattooed skin in the Renaissance ("within this new Euclidian space the skin functions as a Derridean supplement, the material remainder then haunts the objective spatial depth within which the Cartesian subject is driven to locate itself"), but the majority of pieces in the collection are accessible and absorbing, helped by scores of fascinating illustrations. There are several accounts of James Cook's voyages to Tahiti, where the word "tattoo" comes from; and the volume comprehensively demonstrates how ubiquitous this practice is to human culture. Jane Caplan's own chapter on "Tattooing in Nineteenth-Century Europe" is a particularly good survey, from crude anchors and serpents on British sailors to the surprisingly elegant tattoos recorded on the bodies of French convicts--smart designs and cool logos like "l'ami du contraire" and "etoile du malheur". A recurring theme in the essays is that although tattooing is often seen as a marginal activity, in fact it occupies a much more central place in human culture than is often acknowledged. While most books about tattoos are nothing more than catalogues of images, this collection is a thought-provoking and engaging investigation into the theory and practice of the art. Tattooing, it seems, is everywhere. --Adam Roberts

  15. Drawing with Great Needles: Ancient Tattoo Traditions of North America
    For thousands of years, Native Americans throughout the Eastern Woodlands and Great Plains used the physical act and visual language of tattooing to construct and reinforce the identity of individuals and their place within society and the cosmos. The act of tattooing served as a rite of passage and supplication, while the composition and use of ancestral tattoo bundles was intimately related to group identity. The resulting symbols and imagery inscribed on the body held important social, civil, military, and ritual connotations within Native American society. Yet despite the cultural importance that tattooing held for prehistoric and early historic Native Americans, modern scholars have only recently begun to consider the implications of ancient Native American tattooing and assign tattooed symbols the same significance as imagery inscribed on pottery, shell, copper, and stone. Drawing with Great Needles is the first book-length scholarly examination into the antiquity, meaning, and significance of Native American tattooing in the Eastern Woodlands and Great Plains. The contributors use a variety of approaches, including ethnohistorical and ethnographic accounts, ancient art, evidence of tattooing in the archaeological record, historic portraiture, tattoo tools and toolkits, gender roles, and the meanings that specific tattoos held for Dhegiha Sioux and other Native speakers, to examine Native American tattoo traditions. Their findings add an important new dimension to our understanding of ancient and early historic Native American society in the Eastern Woodlands and Great Plains.
