Tribal Tattoos

Tribal tattoos are one of the tattoo designs that never go out of style. Despite the origins of these tattoo designs tracing back to ancient times, they are still as much popular today as they probably were back then. It also helps that a lot of celebrities wear tribal tattoos, a trend that people surely follow. Women are now foregoing well-known female designs such as floral designs and go for the more classic tribal tattoos. Even youngsters are getting in on the trend.

As the name implies, tribal tattoos started in ancient times when people were grouped into tribes. Although there are some disagreements on the real origins of tribal tattoos, archaeologists have uncovered evidence in Asia, Rome, Greece and Egypt.

Back then, tribal tattoos signified one’s rank, dedication, and rights. In addition, they symbolized vitality, strength, and status. The tattoos signify a tribal warrior’s victory and courage. Tribal tattoos were used as charms to protect themselves against evil and to heal themselves. Moreover, tribal tattoos had deep spiritual meanings. Tribal tattoos were usually given to tribal warriors who were about to go to war, or who would go hunting. It could also be considered as a form of blessing for both men and women, or as an art used to honor their gods.

Aside from using ink to engrave the tattoo, some of the tribal warriors from ancient times used to scar themselves in the form of tribal tattoos. Of course, this should no longer be done today.

Tribal tattoos can vary in size. Smaller tattoos are used for the wrists and ankles, while large tattoos are nice on the back and arms. The design also varies, but among the popular ones are the bear, the snake, the Phoenix, the Scorpio, and the dragon.

Aside from looking really cool and classy, tribal tattoos are popular due to their link to one’s heritage. People who wear tribal tattoos usually pick designs that are related to tribes within their culture. This somehow makes them feel connected to their roots.
