What is the Obscure history of Cosmetic Tattoo…

We are back from Japan. What a trip, and what polite, respectful lovely people we met everywhere. Trains ran in perfect union with the clock. The food was interesting, beautiful and delicious.

I thought about the unique skill of Japanese tattooing. That led to writing a little about the history of cosmetic tattoo in general.

The history of cosmetic tattooing is a relatively obscure one, with its origins shrouded in mystery. However, there are some indications that it has been practiced for thousands of years.

One of the earliest known examples of cosmetic tattooing was found on the body of a 5,000-year-old mummy known as Ötzi the Iceman. The mummy, which was discovered in the Alps in 1991, had tattoos on various parts of his body, including his lower back, knees, and ankles. It is believed that these tattoos were created for medicinal purposes, rather than cosmetic ones.

In ancient Egypt, cosmetic tattooing was used to accentuate the eyes and create the appearance of fuller lips. The process involved using a needle to puncture the skin and deposit pigment. Some ancient Egyptian mummies have been found with tattoos on their faces and bodies, indicating that the practice was relatively widespread.

In Japan, tattooing was used to create intricate designs on the skin, including those that mimicked makeup. Known as “irezumi,” this form of tattooing was used primarily by women to enhance their beauty.

In the 20th century, cosmetic tattooing gained popularity in the United States, Asia and Europe, particularly among women who wanted to enhance their eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips. The development of new techniques and pigments made it possible to create natural-looking results that could last for several years. Today, cosmetic tattooing continues to evolve and gain popularity around the world. While the history of the practice may be obscure, its impact on beauty and self-expression is undeniable.

And so it goes on to this day. Done with care and skill, Cosmetic tattoo enhances your features and gives you confidence. Your days and nights can be made easier with semi-permanent makeup in place; allowing you to focus on the other important things in your world.
