The Meaning Behind Tribal Tattoo Pictures

The Meaning Behind Tribal Tattoo PicturesTribal tattoos utilize many different symbols that are deeply connected to history. They can represent many things, like beliefs, spirits, blessings or status. Some also represent the connection of the earth to the life cycle.

The first tribal tattoo actually came about as an accident; it was first done by primitives playing with fire. Perhaps someone accidentally got charred or poked with a red-hot stick, and upon discovering that the injury left a permanent mark on the skin, the trial tattoo was born.

According to the history books, the first tribal tattoos were pictures of the sun or flames in honor of the sun god. By honoring the sun god, these historical body art designs were believed to help create a closer relationship with God.
