    ABSTRACT: Since remote times, there have been records that have stated the practice of tattooing in many cultures. The techniques and tools used are related to the senses as well as the functions of social practices, hence the development of diseases is related to therapeutic practices. The purpose of this research is to identify the construct as the foundation of decision making which is related to the reality from the perspective of someone. Tattooing practice possesses a magical sense due to the symbols and the understanding of the body as a map whose functioning and representations have led humans to recur tattooing as a therapeutic resource. Moreover, tattooing practice is about an effect of decision making. This paper registers different techniques from the Western as well as some traditional cultures that use tattooing as a therapeutic resource.
