Many women have a rough idea what design they want when looking at tribal tattoos for women but learning more about them may help you make up your mind. Here is some interesting information about the designs and their history to help you decide. Different kinds of tribal designs represent different cultures all over the world and these are a growing sign of cultural diversity whatever their origins. Lets start with one of the most popular, the Maori tribal tattoo which originates from the tribesmen of New Zealand and is also referred to as “moko” by the Maori people. It was originally used to enhance the face’s natural contours or to augment the individual’s facial expression and has a spiral pattern within it. Equally popular when it comes to tribal tattoos for women, and men too for that matter, is the Celtic design. This originates from the Celts and many Scots, Welsh and Irish choose this design to convey pride in their Celtic ancestry. There are hundred of these designs in the Celtic heritage, each of which has a particular meaning. The dog Celtic design is a symbol of healing for both body and soul while the

Celtic cat represents the guardians of the gates to the underworld. The lion symbolizes dignity and the Celtic cross represents the bridge between heaven and earth. An alternative to the Celtic version would be the African tribal tattoo and this is often used to impart the story of a life as well as symbolizing the individual’s traits be it status, courage or protection. Similar to the Celtic tattoos are those used by North American tribes which were used in Native American families to rank individuals, again symbolizing wealth, social status and family ancestry.

There are also some helpful tips to bear in mind if you are planning any of these tribal tattoos for women. For starters, if you wear loosely fitting clothes when you go to the tattoo parlor then this will make it easier for your tattoo artist to do his job. Always ensure you are completely satisfied and happy with your chosen design before starting as getting rid of it later will prove to be a costly mistake that will be very painful. It is also important to choose a design that expresses you and what you stand for exclusively. There are thousands of galleries to browse through so make sure you have a good look from the abundance of designs on offer to find the right shape, size and style of tattoo that will suit you.
