Tattoo week - Genesis Rodriguez

Modern tattooing in the Western world has its origins in sixteenth through eighteenth century maritime expeditions, which promoted contact between explorers and the amerindian tribes and Polynesians they encountered.

Actress Genesis Rodriguez ("Entourage", "Man On A Ledge", "Casa De Mi Padre") has a “Hamsa” tattoo on her right foot. "Hamsa" is a palm-shaped amulet that provides superstitious defense against the evil eye, it is believed in the Middle East, with the word “Chai” (‘alive’) in Hebrew in the middle.
