According to the Smithsonian
“In terms of tattoos on actual bodies, the earliest known examples were for a long time Egyptian and were present on several female mummies dated to c. 2000 B.C. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the area of the Italian-Austrian border in 1991 and his tattoo patterns, this date has been pushed back a further thousand years when he was carbon-dated at around 5,200 years old”America’s cultural status of tattooing has both changed and evolved from an anti-social activity in the early 1960’s to that of a fashion statement in the late 1990’s. It was adopted by popular and influential rock stars like the Rolling Stones in the early 1970’s, and by the late 1980’s, it had migrated to be commonly accepted by ever broadening segments of mainstream society.

In 2014 tattoos are routinely seen on rock stars, professional sports figures, ice skating champions, fashion models, movie stars and other public figures who play a significant role in setting the culture’s and behavior patterns and cultural norms.
Tattoos have always been accepted as being a painful experience, to say the least. We here at TAT Balm, have developed a proprietary formula that makes the experience far less painful, and thus open to a far greater portion of society. As the popularity of Tattoos continues to grow in our culture, this is key in making the whole experience from start to finish in one that everyone can be a part of if they choose, without fear of pain and infection.
