Ancient Ink, the first book dedicated to the archaeological study of tattooing, presents new research from across the globe examining tattooed human remains, tattoo tools, and ancient art. It contributes to our understanding of the antiquity, durability, and significance of tattooing and human body decoration and illuminates how different societies have used their skin to construct their identities. Ancient Ink connects ancient body art traditions to modern culture through Indigenous communities and the work of contemporary tattoo artists. Hardcover. 

Vesterheim's exhibit Tattoo: Identity Through Ink is guest-curator by one of the editors of this book, Dr. Lars Krutak, who is a Research Associate at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Krutak is a scholar of body art and has authored three other books on the subject of indigenous body modification. He also co-curated a similar tattoo exhibition that toured to the Field Museum and the LA Museum of Natural History.
