Mankind has made many efforts to understand what has been happening in nature, and for those phenomena that it wasn’t able to grasp, it created symbols for in order to materialize them. Before the advent of the written word, societies have used signs, drawings and symbols in order to express themselves. These symbols have sometimes been engraved on tombstones, sometimes on the walls of caves, sometimes in temples and sometimes even on the body. Their meanings have always been a source of curiosity. Today, any drawing on the body is named a “tattoo”. Tattoos are carried out in different ways in different parts of the world. This documentary is in the pursuit of the secret meaning behind the tattoos of Şanlıurfa, known as “dek, daki vesm, döğün”.
