The Ice Maiden's tattoo, the oldest preserved specimen of tattooed human skin, 5th c BC.

The ice maiden's tattoo: the oldest preserved specimen of tattooed human skin. These remains were uniquely preserved by the geography and climate, leaving amazingly detailed tattoos almost entirely intact.

One of the most famous mummies of the Taklamakan Desert is that of “Cherchen Man”. This European’s body was placed in a poplar-wood box, lowered into narrow shaft grave and left for eternity. His body dates back to 1000 BC and DNA analysis has shown that he was a Celt.

This is Cherchen Man. He stood about six feet tall, had light hair and fair skin, and he lived about years ago in what is today the Xinjiang region of western China. He sports facial tattoos. And the world’s oldest surviving pair of pants.

The most stunning example of ancient pictorial tattooing is the heavily tattooed Scythian chieftain, the "godfather of the Tribal Tattoo," discovered by Russian archeologists in Siberia near the Mongolian and Chinese borders in 1947. The mummy was unearthed from a kurgan burial mound at Pazyryk in the Altai Mountains and was dated to ca. 500 BC, though archaeologist James Mallory (author of In Search of the Indo-Europeans) believes he is more properly dated to about 300 BC.
