This is one of the oldest and most popular tattoo styles in the world. The power of black, the energy of symbols and geometric structures, the harmony of shapes as they follow the curves of a body and designs increasingly gain new forms of expression as they meld with the body.
Lines and dots, different thicknesses, rhythm, movement and modulation: tribal style is a part of the history of tattooing and of so many cultures in which it was not only used for decoration, but also as a code for identification and a rite of passage – whether religious or propitiatory.
This style embodies a deep spirituality which can reveal fascinating spells and unfathomable truths. Even today, the roots of tribal tattoos flow deep in faraway places and times, putting us in touch with ancient peoples and their ancestral traditions. Tribal is still much more than simple decoration, even though some people don’t realize this due to laziness or superficiality.
The tribal style requires a lot of study and careful work, passion, and dedication on the part of the tattooist as well as the person receiving such a tattoo, who in choosing this style embraces a philosophy of life. Thanks to the talent of some interpreters of this style, the tribal language has naturally evolved over time, and with this gallery we would like to take you on a journey through time and space, geography and history, ancient symbolism and the most contemporary artistic styles.
