Abstract:

As people around the world rediscover the art and traditions of indigenous peoples, tribal images have become a leading source for tattoo designs. This fully illustrated handbook shows nearly 100 tattoos from around the world, developed by Maori and Aboriginal tribes and the native peoples of Africa, America, Asia and Europe. Tribal Tattoos recounts the history of body decoration, explains the meanings and myths behind the symbols, and offers many patterns that can be combined into new motifs. All the designs included can be enlarged and traced to decorate any part of the body. Full instructions for temporary tattoos using henna or other body paints, are also included.
