The art of marking the body indelibly was first reported by Joseph Banks, who was a naturalist and sailed with Captain James Cook in the ship HMS Endeavour. James Cook used the term “tattaw” to describe staining the body after seeing the natives of Tahiti and New Zealand doing it. Today we call it tattoo or body ink which has become very fashionable amongst those celebrities who opted for an alternative lifestyle. Tattoo artists are also on the rise and have made it a big business.

Women with body-painted tattoos, numerous piercings, brightly coloured hair and sporty t-shirts are often seen with great admiration. Models with rock solid looks can turn into huge sensation overnight.
