The cultural phenomenon of tattooing is differentiated from other common fads by its long and illustrious history, which is the subject of this illuminating installment of A&E's series. Beginning with the earliest known instances of the practice, the history of tattooing is examined, including its use in branding slaves, rites of passage, and commemorating heroic deeds. Steve Gilbert, editor of the TATTOO HISTORY SOURCE BOOK, lends his expertise to the proceedings, while talented tattoo artists demonstrate their skills. Noting the personal aspect often involved in making the commitment to permanent body decoration, this program dismantles from all sides the perception of tattooing as merely a trend.
