Nothing is new.

Tattoos have been around a long time. Film at 11.

Awesome picture of the tattoo. And the artist's representation really helped me understand what the author was taking about.

Yeah but if she starts seeing a new guy the laser removal is going to take forever!

Mummification continued until Mohammedism?

I had no idea. Seems unChristian, somehow, like hedging your bets with Osiris.

I'm not so sure how long it took for mummification to go out of style; but as far as mixtures of religion, it's still done nowadays -- like people who will doubtless be buried according to Christian funeral rites but who think Hindu symbols and Native American good luck charms are cool, and maybe even more powerful because they seem exotic and full of "hidden knowledge."

Somewhere I have a book of ancient magical spells and incantations that were deciphered, one was an Egyptian charm but similarly full of references to the brand new Christian religion, presumably to make it seem fancy.

We still mummify bodies, after a fashion. That's what embalming is all about, really. Making sure you have a good looking, not-so-stinky corpse for our funerary services.

/I'd rather be buried at sea, unpreserved. So the lobsters could eat me, and then eaten in their turn.

Yeah. I'm not into this whole pseudo-Egyptian resurrection crap, meself. I'd rather be recycled by being planted under a tree. And if it's a fruit- or nut-bearing tree that can feed people or critters, all the better.

/Or a really, really long-lived kind of tree that won't keel over for a thousand years or more. So people go all "WTF?? What're these bones doing in the roots of this old tree?"

Reminds me of an old joke I can't remember except for the topic (tattoos on the insides of women's thighs) and the punchline, which went "...but the one in the middle is Willie Nelson."

What the hell was the rest of the joke?
 
2014-03-23 08:56:28 PM
A woman walks in to a tattoo parlor and tells the artist she would like two tatoos, one of Robert Redford on her left upper thigh, and one of Paul Newman on her right thigh. After hours of work the tatoo artist is finished and holds a mirror in between the womans legs for her to view.
The woman says,'' I dont know if these really look like Paul & Robert, and I ain't payin for this if it isn't right!'' She tells the artist she will go just outside the buisness and ask someone walking down the street if they know who the two men are on her thighs, if they answer correctly she would pay the artist.
She soon sees a man walking down the street, so she pulls up her skirt and asks him, '' Can you tell me who the man on my right thigh and the man on my left thigh are?''
The man replies, '' I dunno, but the one in the middle looks like Willie Nelson.''

The one I always heard was she wanted John Lennon and Eric Clapton. So the girl goes to the tat artist and after a few hours he gets done and the woman checks them out in the mirror and is horrified to find out they look nothing like John Lennon and Eric Clapton. The tattoo artist says "Now just hold on a minute. Obviously we need a third opinion." So he goes out into the street and grabs the first person he sees, which happens to be a drunken bum just down the block. He pulls the wino into the tattoo parlor and asks the wino "You see that image on the right, does that not look just like John Lennon?" The wino scratches his head for a minute and says he's not sure. Getting worried the tattoo artist says "What about on the left? Is that not the spitting image of Eric Clapton?" The wino squints and looks for a minute, "I dunno, but that guy in the middle with the beard and the bad breath has got to be Willie Nelson!"

I'm not sure if the placement on her thigh is significant other than it being a place where it wouldn't normally be seen, and perhaps as an area that she could reach to tattoo herself.

Though, perhaps she could have had a minor ailment in her leg attributed to demons, like restless leg syndrome or something like that, which the tattoo was meant to overcome.

You're probably right. A lot of late Egyptian (demotic) is still in Coptic prayers.

My wife has specifically requested a sky burial.

I'm thinking a) you're 12 years younger and I already don't fancy ladder gymastics, so what's up with that? and b) the junipers on the front patch would do nicely for a crow-friendly rotting platform.

Interestingly, Ötzi, the Iceman mummy (some 4000 years older than the one we're talking about) had tattoos which may have been medically applied, too, although they were apparently done sort of like acupuncture rather than magic wish fulfillment.

Maybe this was a sort of brand, like she was part of some order that marked their members for protection the way one might mark oneself as part of a gang and call it protection. "Property of the Archangel Michael; Do Not Go Above This Line!"
Kind of like:

How do you think magic is supposed to work?

A tattoo wouldn't be the fulfillment of anything. It would be the beginning.

We know from ancient writings that tattooing was common among the Romans and Byzantines well into the Middle Ages.

It was even popular during the Civil War.

It's never been unpopular, just different levels of stigmatized/acceptable. Like prostitution, you always have it.
