I've had posts on this subject fer months now on many boards & have searched librarys,book stores etc,etc with no luck at all.There's just no writin records to be found except a few refrences in jurnals & such,but nothing else other than oral & that's pretty sketchy at best.Old paintings are the main source,but the meanings are lost on most & that's the really bad part.There's alot that were personal,but there were some that had a specific meanin & if you had a tat you didn't earn etc it could be cut off or you could've got kilt fer it.It's the hardest subject I've found to research as yet.

James Adair, has somethings about native tatoos. But, that is discriptions of the southeast, nothing specific. Allso check James Mooney.

For a nice little article on the subject of tattooing see,"Book Of Buckskinning" vol VIII

I also think that Isaac Walters did an article on tattooing among the colonial French in "On The Trail" if I am not mistaken.

I would have to agree with kilsmany.Besides personal meaning,a lot also had big religious meanings as well. I personally would tread lightly.That being said,I would think basic geometric designs would be safe but I have no documentation on that. Truly, a hard subject to get information on.

Haven't written it yet, but the time will come. I do have a VERY big powerpoint that I have assembled with info, quotes, and MANY images (Including original tattoo kits). Anyway, I am presenting on the subject in Madison, WI for the State Historical Society on July 17th if anyone is interested.

Isaac, on VERY limited computer access for awhile

I have located some really excellent "aged tattoo" pens that are really great for fake tattoos. I will use one and post an image of what they look like for anyone interested. Once I gain distributor status I can let people know what the cost is. When I bought them four years ago from a make-up lady on a movie set they were $16 each - but I am still using the same pen today.
