Throughout history, there have been stories of people with blue skin. In Hinduism, the supreme god Krishna and the goddess of time and change, Kali, are portrayed as having blue skin, symbolic of their great enlightenment. In Egyptian art, the god Amon was often portrayed with blue skin to symbolize both his invisibility, and his connection with the creation of the world. In more recent times, blue colored skin has been common in science fiction and fantasy stories... perhaps because of how fantastic the idea sounds to the average person. But it isnít a fantasy; there really have been, and are, people with blue skin.
