I recently found a great article about Lars Krutak and the Discovery Channel's new series 'The Tattoo Hunter' in Wildcat's Expand Magazine.

Lars Krutak is a tattoo anthropologist; in 'The Tattoo Hunter,' he visits some of the most remote parts of the world to look for tattoos from members of the few remaining authentic tribes. For example, while in a Brazilian jungle Krutak searched for a tribe of cannibals to learn more about their sacred tattoos, and in India he sought to learn firsthand about tattoos once worn by headhunters.

Lars Krutak's trip around the world researching tribal tattoos lasted four years, and during that time he tried out a number of local scarification and tattoo traditions on his own body. Check out the video above to see a sneak peek of the series.
