sn’t life about creating? — to make a statement about yourself, or perhaps about our history within the scriptures ingrained into ones soul. If so, then chiseling on your skin referred to as Maori tattoo should be considered art, a form of expression on your body that tells a story.

According to Cristian Petru Panaite, assistant curator of exhibitions at the New York Historical Society (NYHS), says “If a person intends for their tattoos to be art, then they are.”

Today we take a closer look at 10 of our favorite art pieces on women. Before we dive in, let us go back into history for a quick minute, to take a closer look at how this ancient art form came about.

The tattooed right hand of a Chiribaya mummy is displayed at El Algarrobal Museum, near the port of Ilo in southern Peru. The Chiribaya were farmers who lived from A.D. 900 to 1350. (Joann Fletcher)

According to smithsonianmag.com the earliest evidence of tattoos were for a long time Egyptian and were present on several female mummies dated to c. 2000 B.C. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the area of 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.

A tattooed predynastic female figurine (c. 4000-3500 B.C) is displayed at the Ashmolean museum of art and archaeology in Oxford. (Joann Fletcher)

Ok, enough history, I'm excited to show you what we believe are 10 of the sexiest tattoos on women.
