  Tribal Art Tattoos by Nicky Pilkington

Tribal manifestation exists in almost all the cultures on the planet earth since ancient times, so when it comes to talking about tribal art tattoos, the array of forms, shapes and designs is as big as the count of the civilization worldwide. Tribal tattoos were a fashionable trend of the early 1970s when everyone was seeking for new alternatives of life and discovered the art of the "uncivilization".

The boom of African and Caribbean forms of human expressions, music, culture and art during that decade made tribal tattoos a new philosophy of life. Although the 1980s put Tribal Art Tattoos behind the vogue scene, new cultural manifestations remained closely linked to them, such as the Celtic and Hawaiian tattooing art.

Tribal Art tattoos came back into the scene in the 1990s with their catch-eye visual appeal, with lending curves and geometrical figures blending softly onto the skin. From primitive art, based only on black or maroon liner, to colorful-rich designs, tribal art tattoos can be applied anywhere on the body, whether as an arm band, on the lower back, or discreetly on the ankle.

One of the main characteristics of modern tribal designs is that people want to wear them for their visual appeal, and sometimes sexually attractive appearance, rather than their association with any particular tribe. Although some individuals wear them with knowledgeable reason.

Nowadays, the trend of tribal art tattoos follows 3 paths; the Polynesian art, including associated cultures such as the Hawaiian, Maori and Samoan, the African trend, based on the ancient tribes of Central and South Africa, with their Caribbean derivations, and the Celtic art, particularly from Scottish and Gaelic origin.

Tattooing is in fact, an activity derived from traditional ceremonies performed by tribal groups with different purposes and idiosyncrasy. Some Pacific Islanders wore tattoos all over their body as a fear factor to keep away bad spirits and enemies. Even today, some forms of urban culture show forceful tribal art tattoos on arms, back, chest, legs, and sometime on the face.

Generally, tribal art tattoos have no meaning by themselves, individually or by group, just being an evocation of the ancient art. However, some forms of tribal tattoos have a meaning that either the individual to be tattooed or the artist performing the tattooing ignore.

Since tribal art tattoo emerged again, in the United States, however the most popular form of tribal tattooing is closely reminiscent to Native American tattoos, if not the real indigenous representation of deities, nature elements, or symbols of power, religion or mystical beliefs.
