Tribal Tattoo Designs - accounts for nearly a third of all tattoo design search requests, and the term "tribal" of course covers an astonishing array of tattoo design possibilities, from the traditional tribal tattoos of indigenous and aboriginal cultures, to the latest in graphic design for the body.
While today it is possible to find some incredibly breathtaking tribal tattoo designs, you'll be hard pressed to experience the full, authentic art of the tribal tattoo experience in commercial America. Now, electric tattoo machines and high tech, high quality inks have replaced sticks, styluses, bone needles and plant dyes of the modern tattoo's ancient ancestors. Modern tattoo artists have replaced the shaman and medicine folk of old.
The History of the Tribal Tattoo Design
Because body and soul were generally thought to be identical to one another, your tattoos then existed on two planes: the physical and spiritual realms. Many of the tribes from Borneo believed that tattoos would not only be enough to get them to the proper spirit world, but that their tattoos also offered them special qualifications for advantageous occupations upon their arrival.
It has been found that most (if not all) primitive tribes used some form of body marking, be they tattoos, scarifications or the use of plain, temporary body paints. This art prevailed worldwide until the arrival of civilization as we know it, when the tattoo fell into a temporary loss of popularity.
Times May Change, But The Reasons Stay the Same
