Tatoos over time and continents : – as art, stigma and identity (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

 Denna uppsats undersöker vilket kulturell roll tatueringarna har haft historiskt genom en litteraturstudie.

 Tatueringskonsten har praktiserats av människor världen över i tusentals år och man har funnit bevis på att man använde sig av tatueringar i antika Grekland och Romarriket. Många kulturer har av olika anledningar använt sig av tatueringar och gett tatuering en stor social och kulturell mening. Tatueringar har använts för att markera brottslingar, slavar och andra stigmatiserade grupper men har också varit en statussymbol och en identitetsmarkör. Kan man se likheter i hur tatueringar blivit framställda i litteraturen trots skillnader i både tid och rum hos de som utövat tatueringskonsten?

 Uppsatsen undersöker även hur tatueringar framställs inom populärkulturen idag genom att analysera två realitytv-serier; Miami Ink och LA Ink. Uppsatsen ämnar utreda om hur tatueringar framställts under historiens gång även kan ses i hur de framställs i populärkulturen idag. Genom att titta på hur tatueringar, tatuerare och de som tatuerar sig porträtteras i populärkulturen ämnar uppsatsen utröna hur man ser på tatueringar idag.

Abstract [en]

 Tattoos over time and continents – as art, stigma and identity explores by a litterature study  the cultural significance of tattoos’s throughout history.

 Tattooing has been practiced by mankind all over the world for thousands of years and evidence also suggests that tattooing was practiced in ancient Greece and in Rome. Many different cultures have used tattooing for a wide variety of reasons and given the tattoos their great cultural and social meaning. Tattoos have been used to mark prisoners, slaves and other stigmatisiced groups, but also as a sign of status and a mark of identity and heritage. Is it possible to find similarities in different tattoocultures, presented in literature, despite differences in both time and place?

 This thesis also explores how tattoos are presented in the field of popular culture today by analyzing two reality-shows: Miami Ink and LA Ink.  The thesis seeks to investigate if some of the ways tattoos have been presented in history can be seen in the way they are presented in popular culture today. The thesis analyses how the tattoos, the tattoo artists and their clients are portrayed in popular culture in order to investigate how tattoos are seen today.
