A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. The word tattoo, or tattow in the 18th century, is a loanword from the Polynesian word tatau, meaning “correct, workmanlike”. The Oxford English Dictionary gives the etymology of tattoo as “In 18th century,tattaow, tattow. From Polynesian (Tahitian, Samoan, Tongan, etc.) tatau. In Marquesan, tatu.” Before the importation of the Polynesian word, the practice of tattooing had been described in the West as pricking, painting, or staining. Sailors on the voyage later introduced both the word and reintroduced the concept of tattooing to Europe.

Keke Palmer’s Queen of Kush tattoo
The Kingdom of Kush or Kush was an ancient African Nubian kingdom situated on the confluences of the Blue Nile, White Nile and River Atbara. (1050/1070 B.C. – 350 A.D.) but at the height of its power in about 700 B.C. the Kingdom of Kush controlled the entirety of Egypt itself with Kushite Pharaohs ruling.
What I love most is it’s history’s of female rulers!! In school, we very rarely ever learn about female rules and never about African rulers. Amanirenas was one of the most famous Queens of Kush. She reigned from about 40 B.C.E. to 10 B.C.E. She is one of the most famous kandakes (means queen really but that was the title back then), because of her role leading Kushite armies against the Romans from in a war that lasted five years ? (27 BCE – 22 BCE). She was able to communicate a peace treaty that favored the Kushites, granting them land and an exemption from future taxation. She has been described as brave, with one eye.
P. S. “Egypt” is a Greek word meaning black, hence the rename when they invaded.
