Native American Tattoos

Native American tattoos are a great way for a person to recognize their heritage and lineage. As the earliest settlers of the United States, they are known for their symbolic tattoos that remain famous today. Common designs include animals, celestial bodies and natural phenomena. One of the best ideas for tattoos of Native American symbols involves the use of totems. This animal symbol (bird, reptile, etc.) are also known as power animals. They are tattooed in order to show the last name or the clan of the wearer. While this is usually emblazoned on the chest of the Native American, modern modifications allow you to wear it on any part of your body.

Another type of Native American tattoos is the rite of passage ink. It shows a monumental event in the life of a person. It might be his initiation, or his coming of age. There are tattoos of status and rank as well to show the Indian’s role in his society. As for warfare, many Native American tribes utilized intimidation tattoos to scare their enemies. They take the form of frightening and scary creatures, in order to ward off their adversaries, especially colonists. There are many styles of Native American tattoos. It’s just about picking the right style for your look.
