    Sorry to be the pedantic one but a few of these tattoos aren’t classed as tribal, they’re classed as maori. There are one or two celtic and a lot of top images from google, and some pretty poor drawings. Please spend time on research before posting articles like this.

    • kyle

      comfused commenter, the maori are a tribe are they not? doesnt give them the classification as tribal tattoos?

  • Fernando

    This is the worst post I found ever. You must be shamed. Seriously this post its ridiculous.

  • cyberleptic

    i have to agree with the above comments.

    “If you are till in dilemma for the kind of tattoo you should opt for, take my words, tribal tattoos are a safe bet.” – a safe bet for what? pretending to be bad-ass in a picket-fence suburb? if you dont know what ink you want, you should not get one in the first place. this is a decision which should take serious consideration.

    “Tribal tattoos for men can be craved on back, arm, shoulder blades and neck.That means you can flaunt your Tribal tattoo almost on every part of your body.” – really? what about legs? chest? skull? as with about any tattoo, its your choice. just because its a tribal, doesnt man anything about placement.

    your poor and random choice of imagery for this topic just further strenghtens the impression, that you have no idea what you write about. #fail

      You have a great point i kno dudes who were lil pussyz in school now they decked in tribal tatts n will ignore ya when they with theyr mates lol arogent pricks, Ive been thinking about a tatt for 2years now, and i have been sketching what i feel and so on when im able to sit down iv now got a couple of books full im still waiting for the right design to realy stand out then mesh everything together.. But thats a good method of finding a unique design even if you cant draw flow with the page store it then come back dont just get something to secretly stare at your arm from the corner of your eye haha *just sayin*

    I have to agree with the other replies, some of the “tribal” tattoos you have posted are in fact Maori tattoos. Should go back and do some research before just pulling images off google for your articles.

  • ekrisshomaru

    The second one – Huginn og Muninn Final – is mine. I designed it and had it tattooed on my left shoulder. And it is NOT a tribal tattoo. It is a celtic tattoo, obviously enough. And it IS religious-themed: it expresses my deep love for Norse mythology and culture.
    Please remove it from here, it isn’t just a random design for any wannabe badass to have on his shoulder. It has a story and a meaning to me.

      Hi ekrisshomaru,

    realy nice tattos desighns

  • Randall

    Getting a tribal tattoo is a great idea if you want to be ridiculed, made fun of and let everyone know you can’t think for yourself. They are not only extremely trendy, they are so over done, they show that you didn’t bother to do any research or get anything with any meaning. You’re just trying to be cool. Only you are about 7 years late, as that was the last time they were cool. Just before everyone and their dad got one.

    • Jason

      So, they’re extremely trendy, yet they’re 7 years out of date, what?! To start though, tribal tattoos aren’t different than any other. It’s what the person likes, and/or what has meaning to them, which feeds back to liking it. Although, I admit alot of younger people like them and think they’re “Cool, and trendy”, it doesn’t stop them from having meaning to other people. And from the context of your post, you seem to just want to degrade them from possibly having had bad experiences with people that had some. Pretty hostile post, and not very well thought out. Peace.

      I got a tribal tattoo and I put alot of thought into mine & not everyone has too design the tattoo they so choose to have placed on them and mine is a symbol of strength and its awesome I placed it on my right upper arm !!! I’m happy with it and I won’t judge you if you so choose to put a butterfly or a skull upon your skin so please let everyone’s choice be there own .

    just really awesome

  • Chado

    I see a complete disarray of tats that are misidentified in a very obvious way.

    Tribal tats are for those that are unable to come up with any sort of creative design in order to express their own individuality and personality. To make matters worse, when the time of heavy regret comes from donning a tribal, the search for a cover-up begins. Good luck. That thick, heavy, saturated black is next to impossible to hide.

    I speak from watching friends and co-workers of past and present try to hide their much outdated and at-the-time-trendy tribals.

    It took me years to find the right tattoo for me and even longer for my second that will be a very large piece.

    Do not jump in to the deep end without doing to research. Make sure the tat you get will nort be a regret in the future, it is with you for life.
