It is therefore in Brazil that it can be seen most often on the skin of the premises.

The most tattooed parts of the body are the shoulders, the calves and the back. Shoulders and calves are supports for the redeeming Christ's face, or possibly smaller reproductions, but they are more rare.

Sometimes too, but they are very rare, there are several monuments of the world: One sees then the statue of liberty coterie the redeeming Christ.
