Tattoo History: India

Portraits of tattooed Ramnamis in India.

“The Ramnamis are a religious sect founded by ‘low-caste Hindus, deemed 'untouchables.’ They were denied entry to temples and forced to use separate wells. 

“Tattooing was an act of defiance against caste-based discrimination for the Ramnamis. Writing’s the lord’s name on their bodies was both a rebellion and a message to higher-caste Indians that 'God is everywhere — even here with me.'”

As a follow up to this post, I made a few new designs and then added these stickers to my Etsy shop!

Thought I might as well make some crystal stickers while I’m at it too!

The skulls are of a Chinese water deer, red fox, stag, bearded dragon, tiger and a Griffon vulture.

A5 prints of each individual skull as well as a A4 / A5  group shot and crystal print are available also! It’s free UK shipping and international postage is available :D
