Tribal tattoos have been very popular throughout the world,  they are popular with both men and women.  Tribal tattoos have come to mean various things. The word “tribal” is an adjective that refers to things dealing with tribes. But it’s likely that most people you know with a “tribal tattoo” aren’t affiliated with a tribe. In this case, “tribal” refers more to the design or art style used in traditional tattoos in Polynesian and other cultures. This style of artwork may imitate the thick lines and geometric patterns while incorporating new elements.

In ancient times, tribal tattoos were used:

  • As a symbol that a person belonged to a certain tribe or social status.
  • To express religious or spiritual belief.
  • For self-protection, as camouflage in the woods.
  • For medicinal purposes (a treatment similar to acupuncture, but leaving behind a pigment)

Cultures that used tattoos for these purposes were located all over the world. Now, modern tribal art usually adapts the styles of Aztec, Samoan, Polynesian, Indian, Hawaiian, Egyptian, Mayan, and Maori tattoos. Today we’ll be looking at some of the best Tribal Tattoo Designs for women.
