Siberian princess’s remarkably well-preserved body shows how little tattoo fashion has changed in 2,500 years
Princess Ukok,” who was discovered high in Siberia’s Altai mountains, is about 2,500 years old. She was buried in the permafrost, which kept her body remarkably well preserved, including tattoos that are among “the most complicated and the most beautiful” archeologists have found.

“It is a phenomenal level of tattoo art. Incredible,” lead researcher Natalia Polosmak told the Siberian Times.
