Hey, everyone. Here is an awesome photo of me awkwardly holding my book... Many of you are asking really great questions (and giving me some things to think about)! While many of the answers to your questions can be found in my book, I certainly don't expect you to run out and buy it! Especially if your question can be answered in a couple of sentences... What I can recommend if you are interested is the following: Head over to your local public library, University/College library or your job (if they have a small library) and ask them to order the book for the library. Libraries have funds set aside for purchasing books (makes sense, I guess 🤔), and you certainly can request that they get a copy! It will save you money, and allow you to (hopefully) get some answers! In the meantime, I'll try to answer some of your questions here.
Keep your questions, comments, and tattoo experiences coming! As long as you guys are around, I'll keep posting about forensic science, tattoos, and the rest of my strange adventures! #DoesThisBookMakeMeLookAwkward

Most of you correctly identified Charles Manson. While you have never met him (except for one of you it appears), you recognized his face- many of you made the connection largely based on the swastika tattoo which is prominent (even though it has faded and looks different from when it was first acquired). Both faces in the original post are of Manson. The effects you see that make the photos look different are from lighting effects and perception (Do you remember the drama a few years back from the dress that some thought was black and blue while others thought it was white and gold?- A similar concept is happening here). The other person in the photo is only apparent by the presence of the hand. But here is where tattoos are so important. This individual, Mr. Black Wolf, did not want to be identified in the photo so he did not show his face. But, on the contrary, his hand and wrist tattoos do in fact provide us with enough information to identify (and, I believe, individualize) Black Wolf. #tattoo #tattoos #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks #identity

Today's news. Convicted sex offender Matthew E. Stager was just released from federal corrections in Petersburg, Va. He was supposed to self-report from a transitional facility in Texas, but never showed up... Any thoughts on the meanings behind his tattoos? I'm curious about the X with F-A-R-T on his neck... #tattoo #tattoos #police #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

The news is reporting that Stager was caught in DC. I found some additional photos of Stager- it's really interesting (at least to me) to see the progression of tattooing; although his physical features changed over time (weight, hair, makeup choices...) the tattoos remain a really great way to identify and demonstrate an individual's tattoo "evolution". #tattoo #tattoos #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

As a thank you to @mrs_angemi, I'm bringing you a tattoo from the autopsy suite. This tattoo is probably from the 60's and possibly "homemade" due to the design and ink characteristics. Notice part of the tail is actually a scar. Have any of you incorporated a scar or birthmark into your tattoo design or tried to cover a scar with a tattoo? What about the opposite--any of you have a scar on your tattoo that changed the design? And thank you all for the follows! #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

@Regrann from @forensic_tattoo - *Breaking News* It is being reported that the woman's torso has been tentatively identified after the victim's mother saw and identified the tattoo found on the remains. The victim reportedly disappeared on Sunday and her torso was found a couple of days later in Brooklyn. The NYPD will likely confirm the identity and move forward with an official homicide investigation.

Carvings in human skull, museum exhibit in Paris. The carving and painting of skulls, statues, and works of art are believed to be an indication of early tattooing practices. Correlations can be made when the patterns of the carvings and paintings are compared to documented historical records of tattoos and tattooing (written descriptions, drawings, and photos) by travelers and historians. #tattoo #tattoos #history #skull #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

📷Infrared photography and the visualization of tattoo cover-ups... This is one of my most favorite techniques of the forensic examination of tattoos. 📷This technique is useful for detecting tattoo cover ups (pictured above) and tattoo "removals." While it may appear that the tattoo is gone or completely obscured by a new tattoo, the pigments can remain in the deeper layers of skin in the shape of the original design. The infrared camera picks up the ink in the deeper layers of tissue by blocking visible light and detecting IR radiation ... on the left is the current tattoo, on the right is the IR photograph of the tattoo--if you look carefully you can see the original tattoo (can you resolve what it was?). This technique can be useful as a rapid, nondestructive method for the identification of human remains. #tattoo #tattoos #ink #inked #infrared #light #photography #photo #forensic #forensicscience #science #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

Evaluating pigment chemistry for the tattoo ink samples I've been working on in the lab...This information can help me determine what types of chemical extractions I should do to separate the pigments and also help with my predictions of how these samples might interact with electromagnetic radiation during spectroscopic analysis. #tattoo #tattoos #ink #chemistry #science #research #forensic #forensicscience #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

Tattoos, investigations and detective fiction (c.1920). 📚"...the police proceeded to dredge the river, and presently they brought up a right arm...and a leg divided into three parts, evidently a woman's. Now asked of the arm found in the box, there could be no question about its identity, for it bore a very distinct tattooed inscription consistent with the initials R. M. above a heart transfixed by an arrow, with the initials J. B. underneath. A few inquiries elicited the fact that the woman, Rebecca Mings, who had disappeared, bore such a tattooed mark on her left arm; and certain persons who had known her, having been sworn to secrecy, were showed the arm, and recognized the mark without hesitation." #tattoo #tattoos #ink #inked #book #skull #forensic #forensicscience #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

Tattoos in the news... Here is another interesting case that deals with tattoo design and interpretation in a death investigation (much like the Aaron Hernandez case which I posted about some time ago)... In this case, the tattoo design being interpreted is a skull with blood drops reportedly obtained by the perpetrator months after he allegedly hit and killed a woman. As you can see from the excerpts and photos (👉🏼SWIPE👈🏼), the 'meanings' of the skull and blood drops are being considered as well as the attempted cover up of the tattoo with the defendant's hair. So what do you think-dumb move on the part of the defendant getting the tattoo or overzealous interpretation of a tattoo and hairstyle? Should tattoo interpretation be presented at trials? If so, then who should be able to weigh in on tattoo 'meaning'? How many of you have tattoos that could be potentially misinterpreted?

Visualization of obscured tattoos can be done by various techniques ranging from manual to chemical to photographic. These techniques effectively "remove" (or make 'invisible') the outermost layers of skin and resolve the underlying tattoo pigments in the deeper layers. In this case, in which there is evidence of road rash from a fatal collision involving a motorcycle, the tattoo is still visible and not completely obscured. The tattoo itself appears to exhibit pigment migration, making it difficult to resolve in general. The techniques above could be used to resolve the tattoo design so that it can be visualized clearly despite the pigment migration and injuries. #tattoo #tattoos #ink #inked #forensic #forensicscience #science #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

After a summer of traveling, teaching, writing, and learning, it's time to start thinking about my future projects. I'm thinking about developing a university-level course that looks at the history of criminology and medico-legal death investigation. Skulls, tattoos and murder all wrapped into one...I'll keep you posted... #skull #bones #tattoo #book #art #magic #crime #forensic #forensicscience #science #history #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

So in the last post, many of you correctly picked up on the dentition and the region around the mouth (abscess indication). A couple of you alluded to the overall shape of the skull and how that might impact the physical features of Hummel's face💀 So I thought it would be interesting to mention CRIMINAL ANTHROPOLOGY💀 In the 19th century, criminal anthropology was the "scientific" study devoted to understanding how the physical features of an individual correlated to their criminality. The most famous criminal anthropologist was Cesare Lombroso (Italy, 1835-1909). Lombroso believed that the physical characteristics of an individual would be a predictor of criminal behavior--he defined the 'born criminal' based on the shape of the head, facial features, bone symmetry, etc.💀 In addition, Lombroso also believed that TATTOOS were an indication of degeneracy and atavism, or a reversion to primitive status, which indicated one's propensity for crime and savagery. Lombroso spent time in the autopsy suite recording the physical features of the deceased and measuring their bones. He mainly studied criminal offenders (males and females), but also reported on sailors, prostitutes, and psychiatric patients. Lombroso' work, although largely discredited, has impacted many fields, including criminology, anthropology, psychology, and police science. 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼SWIPE to see some images from his work...👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 #forensic #forensicscience #skull #bones #history #crime #science #tattoo #tattoos #ink #inked #forensicanalysisoftattoosandtattooinks

🇺🇸A mixture of red, white and blue tattoo inks 🇺🇸The first photo is the mixture on a microscope slide viewed with a stereomicroscope (μ=10x). Notice how the colors interact with one another when they come into contact 🇺🇸The second photo is a microscopic image of the interface where the three pigments from the colors meet on the microscope slide (PLM; μ=100x). Also notice how, although we know the mixture is red, white and blue, our eyes perceive purple in the second image where the pigments mix.
