______________________The cultural history of tattoos goes back to the prehistory of mankind. The reasons for body adornment range from beauty to social messages, from stigmatisation to therapy.
It is not possible to pinpoint exactly when the cult of body adornment began. Nor is there a people who invented this art. Rather, tattoos and other skin modification practices developed in parallel.
Before tattoos entered mainstream culture, women in particular wore them in secret for a long time.
The Norn people already have body paint or tattoos at character creation. While male characters still had some pieces of armour where you could see the tattoos, it was different for female characters. What bothered me the most was that the tattoos were almost invisible because almost all armour (no matter what class) covered the tattoos. It was difficult to find pieces of armour for female characters where something was still visible. Especially if you wanted to show only a part of the tattoos (and didn't choose a norn with a full body tattoo).
Why has it taken so long for tattoo armour to be integrated as such into play? Is it this air of disreputability, this tendency towards the scandalous that is inherent in tattoos?
At least we now have a small selection, even if I would still like to see them as gloves, shoulders, etc.
In any case, I'm looking forward to new temporary tattoos and all the possibilities to use them. So today I'm showing my Norn with new tattoo armour. For my look, I chose Norn-like armour (bear ceremonial robe and boots with fur). I also added the new leg tattoo and a mask that mimics the tattoo (especially in terms of colour).
For this look you can use many different weapons, I chose Naegling to support the colour scheme.
That's how this somewhat brutal and rebellious outfit came about. I hope you like my Norn rebel.
