These are examples of tattoo's that are reminiscent of the pattern which is consistent on both the packaging and actual board of our game. The patterns remind me of tribes and the idea of initiation ceremonies. The sense of belonging that exists within tribe and how they often 'brand' themselves to show loyalty to the group. As an initial idea this is basic, however this could be carried forward literaly by reasearching, people with tattoo's and possibly develop this into work on genders and stereotypes and how we judge people on subconsciously appearance.
Another approach this could take would be to look at actual tribe culture such as pastoral nomads, or even something a little more accessible in this culture such as travellers. I intend to bring this idea up with the group as one of the possible ideas to progress with.
