Tribal tattoos are one of the oldest forms of decorative tattooing. The most popular style of tribal tattoos emerged from the group of Polynesian Islands. Each culture had a specific style of tattooing and a lot of the designs are tribe specific, with a lot of inherent meaning.
Tribal tattoos consist of rhythmic pattern work that is usually freehand drawn onto the skin before tattooing.
This style of tattoo combines fine lines, heavy black work and soft shading to create an impressive work of art that is powerful and cohesive with the shapes of the body.
