Artist's Description

Recently in my Body Art work, I have realized that Tribal Tattoos have enjoyed a rejuvenation.

The tribal style of tattoos comes from the older tribes such as the Celtics (Ireland, Scotland, & Wales), Maori Tribe (indigenous people of Brand-new Zealand), The Haida Tribe (indigenous people along the west coast of North America), the Marquesan (Polynesian inhabitants of the Marquises Islands) and the tribes of Borneo.

The Maori tribes migrated from Eastern Polynesia around 800 to 1300 AD and were the initial settlers in Advances Zealand. They developed their own language. The Maori were described as a furious and glorious warrior race.

Native Americans used bone chisels for tattooing to denote rank, abundance, tribe affiliation, family, role in world and deeds of bravery.
