Siberian Princess reveals her 2,500 year old tattoos
(siberiantimes.com)


The ancient mummy of a mysterious young woman, known as the Ukok Princess, is finally returning home to the Altai Republic this month.

[The princess, and her people] are all believed to be Pazyryk people - a nomadic people described in the 5th century BC by the Greek historian Herodotus - and the colourful body artwork is seen as the best preserved and most elaborate ancient tattoos anywhere in the world.

To many observers, it is startling how similar they are to modern-day tattoos.

Nice find and some very nice ink IMO.

Very cool insight into an ancient culture.

I also am intrigued by the fact she had a symbol for the tree of life on her head.


'From the inside the mummy was filled with herbs and roots. Her head was completely shaved, and she wore a horse hair wig. 'On top of the wig there was a symbol of the tree of life - a stick made from felt, wrapped with black tissue and decorated with small figures of birds in golden foil.


Who was she and what knowledge did she have!?

Seems like a good reason for me to get a tattoo that says
"I am from the Year 2012, Please send help"
then bury myself alive somewhere in the middle of nowhere for future Archeologists to find me and extract the vital information, because i'm sure there won't be any legible documentation from this time by then

Well that was a fairly pointless and rude post.
Do you get off on putting others down?

You didn't even post a link to the story that has 'already been posted.'
It's a fair thing to point out if you're legitimately trying to enlighten someone, but i doubt those were your intentions.

I'm not writing this to attack you,
just to point out that I'm tired of everyone trying to 'one up' everyone else. Let's start trying to get along. Act like mature and loving human beings. Being respectful is a characteristic that is going out of style fast. I believe the world would be a much better place if we tried to bring it back.

Oh, and to the OP. Thanks! I missed the other post that must be up here and I'm glad that you 'reposted' it so that I had a chance to see it.

That is what the search function is for here
I did start one on this particular topic a few days ago. Link That being said I am jealous that the good link was used to start this thread. Much better images of the tats on this link than the one I opened with.
So this thread warrants a star & flag for the better opening link.
