The tribal styles we see now a days originate from various old tribes like those from Borneo, the Haida, the Native Americans, the Celtic peoples, the Maori and other Polynesian tribes. The shapes and motifs of these tribal tattoos are intensely rooted in the tribe’s mythology and view of the world.
The traditional tattoo artist aims to reflect the social and religious beliefs of the tribe in his tattoo designs. Recurring themes are the rituals of the tribe, the descendants, the origins of the world and the relationship with the gods.
