So many tattoo artists are going to be disillusioned when they see these designs.

I loved reading this article. How magnificent were these people. And how wonderful it is to see the tattoos which survived the burial. They were true fashionistas. This is a magnificent insight into this lost culture. Thank you so much.

The article and the pictures are fascinating.

Feathers, cannabis and tattoos have been around in many cultures for far longer than a few thousand years.

Ty, Marty.

This discovery has to rank alongside that of Otzi a few years ago. Both finds give us extraordinary insights into the lives - and deaths - of peoples of whom no history was written. Their technology may have been vastly different from our own but, beneath the veneer of sophistication with which we protect ourselves from reality. we and they are alike in so many ways. We share the same emotions and human feelings. We fear what the future may bring and we launch our children into the unknown in the hope that the world will be kinder to them than it has been to us. But, for all their seeming innocence, they were better than we are. They did not destroy all that they met like a ravenous virus as we do. And the world of Man has survived 2500 years after Ukok's life and double that from the time of Otzi. Can we boast with any certainty that we will be here that far into our own future?

A princess dies so they kill 2 warriors, an attendant and six horses to keep her company. Humans are so self-serving and destructive.

It's always interesting to lear how they live so many year ago.
