It is difficult to pinpoint the exact origins of Bamboo Tattoo Art as the practice is so old the history is almost lost, being tied up with myth and legend. The earliest evidence of tattoos was for a long time Egyptian, and present on many female mummies dated to 2000 B.C. In Samoa, the tradition of applying tattoo by hand has been defined by rank and title, with chiefs and their assistants, descending from notable families in the proper birth order. Tattoos have changed throughout the years, especially in the United States and have become more widespread in its popularity.
In some of the tribal cultures, the tattooing technique was known to be very painful and harsh. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the Italian-Austrian border in 1991 and his tattoo patterns, this date has been pushed back a further thousand years when he was carbon-dated at around 5,200 years old.


Polynesian tattooing is considered the most intricate and skillful tattooing of the ancient world. The tattooing ceremonies for young chiefs, typically conducted when they hit puberty, were elaborate affairs and were a key part of their attendance to a leadership role. Roman writers reported that many criminals and slaves were tattooed as a way of identification. The tattoo was created by cutting designs into the skin, usually with Bamboo, and then rubbing ink or ashes into the wound. The distribution of the tattooed dots and small crosses on his lower spine, right knee and ankle joints correspond to areas of strain-induced decay, with the suggestion that they may have been applied to alleviate joint pain and were therapeutic.
Polynesian people believe that a person’s spiritual power, is displayed through their tattoos.


In Thailand, bamboo tattooing began in the Buddhist temples, with monks receiving religious text tattoos from grand master monks for protection.
Early in the fourth century, when Constantine became Roman emperor and abolished the prohibition on Christianity, he also banned tattooing on face, which was common for convicts, soldiers, and gladiators.
Throughout periods of conflict in Thailand, soldiers would visit temples to be tattooed by the monks with spells for such things as protection, strength or invisibility. Most modern tattoo machines can control needle depth, speed, and force, which has allowed tattooing to become a very precise art form.
