    Thanks for the link -- very cool to see even more tattoos revealed on the Ice Man. It reminds me of the Siberian Ice Princess, who also has many tattoos, although they seem to be for decorative purposes, rather than any sort of acupuncture treatment. Also, she's less than half his age, so not much of a comparison, other than they were both well preserved for thousands of years.
