On September 19th 1991 Otzi the Iceman was found in the mountains of Italy, thought to be a recent murder victim. Instead, he was discovered to be over 3,000 years old, mummified due to extreme cold. On his body were several charcoal tattoos that include parallel lines and various marks around his wrist and ankles; archaeologists believe these were thought to be medicinal for pain relief or arthritis. 

On the very same day of this large archaeological discovery, I was born. Years later I would read a children’s book about mummies and excitedly notice that my birthday was the same as his discovery. From that day forward, my interest in history, anthropology, archaeology, (and osteology in particular) was peaked and there was absolutely no going back.

On July 5th 2012, Otzi and I strengthened our bond. Thanks to Whitney at Love Tattoo in Jenison, MI.

Wow. One of the most legit tattoos. 

sooooo coooool

I am acquiring an Otzi tattoo as soon as I am able. (The lines on the right foot.)
