Mayans like tattoos. The sacred images on their skin are status symbols of which they are very proud. There are specific tattoos for each caste, each priest level, each social role. Ball playing was actually part of a religious ceremony and their tattoos were very ornate as well as very large. Not make-up. Tattoos.
