The modern American anthropologist Lars Krutak (born in 1971) brought to life a truly unique project. As a researcher and lover of tattoos, he likened his body to canvas and managed to inflict a lot of ethnic patterns and scars on it, typical of various ethnic communities located in different parts of our planet. Its skin is decorated with “tattoos” native to Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, as well as from the Hawaiian Islands, Brazil, Ethiopia, Benin, Mozambique.

Despite the clearly staged nature of some of the captured scenes, they are very interesting from a cultural point of view.
The project was completed, apparently, for the banal reason that the size of the “canvas” (the body of the researcher) is still limited.

Invisible Japanese Yakuza Tattoos
In the “Book of Japanese Symbols” (M. 2003), authorship of the famous Russian orientalist Alexander Meshcheryakov, I came across curious information about the “invisible” Japanese tattoos that had been circulated in the Land of the Rising Sun earlier than the late XIX – early XX centuries.

Invisible tattoos are applied to human skin with flesh-colored paint. They become noticeable on the body only during a hot bath (for example, in a bath) or with severe reddening of the skin due to excessive alcohol Continue reading
