Magical Tattoos Panel
Tattoos go beyond simple body decoration; they are often symbolic, showing cultural and personal identity. We may not know what Otzi the Iceman’s tattoos meant- but they show that people have been using tattooing for thousands of years. The tattoos of the Pacific Islanders tell stories, and reinforce identity, and there are many magickal signs and symbols permanently binding gods and their followers. Our panelists will share their experiences with the effects of these contracts “drawn in blood”.
