Preserved Tattoos

Have you ever wondered if you could preserve your tattoos after you pass? Me neither... until now. Thanks to the wonderful people at London's Wellcome Collection and London's Science Museum, we are able to see what tattoos from the early 1900's look like. There are over 300 individual pieces of tattooed human flesh, collected from the late 19th century. Yes, we only have the pictures, but they have the actual skin. At the Wellcome Collection, they literally have a collection of preserved human skin with tattoos that have stories of their own. Check out a small part of the awesome collection here!
