Tattooing was common amongst certain religious groups in the ancient Mediterranean world, which may have contributed to the prohibition of tattooing in Leviticus. However, during the classic Greek period, tattooing was only common among slaves. ~ (Robert Graves – The Greek Myths, 1955)
The Three Graces: In Greek mythology the Graces were viewed as the protectors of everything beautiful and joyful, and often attended social events and banquets. Pindar has written about the Graces as the source of all decorum, purity of happiness in life, good will, and beneficence and gratitude among men. They are shown almost exclusively nude or wearing transparent gowns, conveying sincerity and candor, without disguise or pretense.
