As specified by the word itself, the tribal tattoo indicates the category of tattoos that are based on traditional graphics of indigenous peoples and tribes all over the world. The tribal tattoos are definitely the first ones to be realized​​, in the entire history of man. Just think that found in the Italian Alps was a tattooed mummified body that dated back over 5000 years.

Even the Egyptians, Celts, Scythians, decorate their bodies with signs and the tattoos were attributed with magical powers, enough to be the protagonists in most of the social rituals of the community. From the Pacific Islands (Samoa Hawaii, etc.) to the Dayaks in Borneo, the Maori of New Zealand, to the Native Americans, every culture has produced a kind of decoration unique and unmistakable.

The tribal tattoos are generally characterized by abstract designs or geometric shapes that follow the morphology of the human body and are almost all made with black color.
