Tribal Chest Tattoos Are Absolutely Fascinating

Jun 24, 2008
There are so many different types of tribal chest tattoos that it's impossible to say anything bad about the design in general. They have lot of black ink that holds up the tattoo very well and does not fade like other colors.

The designs of tribal tattoos are popular and it is easy to design one. They have been the hottest thing in the tattoo world since sliced bread or the old school WWII era Hula dancer. You see these influences have been all around us for a long time my grandpa even has one of those Hula Girls tattoos still.

This is really an up and coming thing and it is not huge yet. Many tattoos include Maori designs, Eskimo totems and Aztec sun clocks and so on. Other types of these rely more on the use of heavy lines and colors to create an image.

They are extremely popular if not the most popular tattoo style currently. These type of tattoos have their origin the the ancient tribes of Polynesia, New Zealand(Maori tattoos), Hawaii and many other early cultures.

Tribal Tattoos recounts the history of body decoration, explains the meanings and myths behind the symbols, and offers many patterns that can be combined into new motifs. All the designs included can be enlarged and traced to decorate any part of the body.

They were used by ancient cultures as a means by which the young become adults, but some have made it into a fashion statement. A few words of advice to those people: fashions are seasonal, tattoos are not. Tribal tattoos have existed for thousands of years in numerous cultures around the world.

Tribes in Africa used to tattoo the bodies of their warriors with crocodile teeth and handmade ink with simple images and symbols in order to mark their place in the tribe and scare their enemies with the strength of their warriors. Tribal tattoos symbolize membership in a group, family, social, or whatever. At least they used to, nowadays anyone with a cool design in their mind can get one, which makes them more a decorative thing, I suppose.

Tribal chest tattoos are possibly one of the most sought after tattoo designs and the most popular are based on the Maori, Haida, Polynesian and Native American designs. Of course the term tribal has so many different meanings and an almost limitless amount of variations and combinations. These tattoos were originally used as a form of permanent tribal identification.

Therefore putting on the wrong tattoo will jeopardize your chances of being one of the tribe and might just permanently mark you as an outsider. They have a simple appeal : we like the way they look on us, It reinforces a positive feeling about ourselves and connects us some how to an element of mystery and ancient activity.
