Tattoos, Body Piercings, and HealthBook - 2014
Tattooing and body piercing have existed in some form or other for thousands of years. In cultures around the world the body has been used as a canvas for personal adornment, art, identification, religious marking, spiritual protection, and more. But tattoos and body piercings are hardly a thing of the past. In fact, both have experienced a resurgence in recent years, particularly among teens and young adults. The Library of Tattoos and Body Piercings explores this fascinating topic from various perspectives including history, art, health, and teen views and concerns. Sidebars highlighting topics of special interest, source notes, a bibliography for further research, and an index provide additional tools for readers and report writers.
