* In many cultures at many points throughout the history of settled human civilization, from ancient times to the modern era, forced tattooing (as well as branding, scarring and disfigurement) was used to permanently mark a convicted criminal. This was typically reserved for certain crimes, though in some cases just doing time or getting arrested earned you a conspicuous mark of shame. Even if the criminal escaped custody, served their sentence fully or were exiled from a certain region, for the rest of their lives law enforcement would distrust them and law-abiding citizens would ostracize them. Some modern criminal cultures trace their tattoo traditions back to these practices, or at least claim to.
