The above papers I wrote myself, however, throughout my research I often unearth some fascinating and often esoteric studies, so below is my ever-growing, but by no means extensive list of papers on tattoos, body modification, literature, and culture, from various disciplines and schools of thought. I'll only post work that I've read, but if you have any suggestions or just want to yarn about a specific topic or book, please get in touch!

I've only just begun uploading articles so bear with me. Use the search bar if you're after work on a specific topic, or use the drop-down menu to search by key themes. The abstracts are pulled from the online book depository that's linked (I will endeavor to write my own soon!).  Most journal articles will require an institutional log in; their abstracts are extracted from the paper itself.
