tattoo origins?

according to 30,000 years of art, the picture below is a pot fragment from the solomon islands. the design motif would later be used on tattoos in the region, which "makes sense from a design perspective ... cermaics, textiles and tattoos each allow surface decoration that then articluates a three-dimensional form."

 and if this leaves you wondering where the solomon islands might be found, well, join the crowd...think east of papua new guinea or, for those with a higher level knowledge of geography, think oceania
