Dottie Fortner comes from a family of artists. As a girl, Fortner dabbled in painting and pencil sketches. Her artful journey continued in college with several art classes and led her from pencil on paper to ink on skin. Fortner is a tattoo artist. Tattooing dates back to prehistoric times. A frozen body more than 5,000 years old, called the Siberian "Iceman," was discovered in the Swiss Alps in 1991. The body had 57 tattoos. Archeologists speculate these prehistoric tattoos had a spiritual or therapeutic purpose. Today, tattooing has evolved into a popular form of artistic expression.
