William The Coroner’s Forensic Files

Tattoos

Filed under: Forensics,modification,Teaching — williamthecoroner @ 20:37

Today, we explored tattoos and the wonderful world of forensics.  From the history of tattoos, how they are produced, to the (really more interesting ) psychological and sociological aspects of tattoos.  Why some tattoos are ill-advised.  Why you should not net the name of anyone except your child as a tattoo.  Just ask Johnny Depp.  What tattoos are malignant signs–and why you should never get something put on your body that you cannot read yourself.

And then, of course, there is always the T-T ratio!

  1. Does this mean that I should refrain from getting an inverted H-gate shift pattern tattooed on my right palm? I mean, if I buy a right-hand-drive car at any point in the future, I can always get one on my left hand as well.

    (I’m about 98% kidding.)

  2. Tats are an interesting phenomenon. Actually I’m amazed at some of the stuff I see out there on otherwise sensible people…
