Tattoos have been steadily gaining popularity since World War II, and in the 1990s even the practice of body piercing became a mainstream fad. The selections in this volume explore the history of tattoos and body piercing, the reasons people practice body modification, and the controversial nature of these trends.
"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
