      While I have never found any reference to tatoos in that area, many
      cutures settling in Solesia and Galacia might have had some, but
      would not necessarily have passed them on. For example, Nestorian
      Christians from the East settled in Khazaria in the 10-11th
      centuries because of religious freedom, and many moved on to Kiev in
      the 12th. The growing strenght and influence of the Russian Orthdox
      church excluded these people and many were sent on West as slaves or
      serf labor. They were tatood with the 'fish' symbol or three 'X' as
      a mark of Christ. In 'Polish' lands they would have been Roman
      Christian by fiat and probably actively converted while hiding their
      tatoos.
