- Nowadays, itís not uncommon to see people with copious amounts of tattoos on their arms, legs, and head. But, it wasnít that long ago that these permanent adornments were only found on a very specific group of people Ė prisoners.

The tiny pieces of history are an eerie but a fascinating look at the past.
