Tattooing is a method of decorating the body. The word ‘tattoo’ comes from the Polynesian words ‘tatu’ and ‘tatau’, meaning ‘to mark’.

Tattooing involves puncturing the skin with a sharp instrument and depositing an indelible pigment into the non-exfoliating layers of skin known as the dermis. The marks or designs created in this way are permanent.

The modern method of tattooing uses an electric needle to puncture the skin, and a wide range of ink colours to provide the pigment for the design.
