In “North African Women’s Tattoos: Method, Evaluation and Interpretation” are redrawn from several hundred original postcards and photographs from the early 20th century which show evidence of women’s traditional tattooing in North Africa in the late 19th and early 20th century.
The purpose of this work is to provide historically accurate examples of North African women’s traditional tattooing so that people can enjoy them again in all their beauty and diversity. This work is particularly useful for performance and costuming. This book also demonstrates the use of a safe temporary tattoo paint if they do not choose permanent tattoos.
