Tribal Maori Tattoos:

One of the most prolific tattoo designs are the tribal tattoos with their free-flowing lines and intricate structures.
Many ancient tribes used tattoos to mark themselves as a sign of identification and also as a sign of loyalty to a particular tribe. The Maori tribe from New Zealand still use tattoos to mark members of the tribe, and some tribes in Africa too use tribal tattoos to mark tribesmen. Tattoos have long been a mark of individualistic expression and a symbol of ones faith and belief system. Using the body as a moving canvas, many people are getting tattoos to showcase their views and preferences. The word tattoo comes form the Samoa word 'tatau', Polynesian tribal tattoos are deemed to be as old as the art of tattooing itself. Hawaii has similar culture as the other pacific islands and Hawaiian tribal tattoos are also in great demand nowadays.

Back tattoo, Maori tribal design:

A great place to have tattoos is the back, simply because of the large flat area available to experiment 
with big tattoo designs. The back is also a good place to get a tattoo especially if you want to hide the tattoo you have, at work or at school. Some female celebrities use the back tattoos to go with the backless dresses. Lower back tattoos look great when wearing low-cut jeans and short t-shirts. Some intricate designs look good only in big prints, hence back tattoos for men who like big bold patterns are a great idea. Most people do not like to experiment with colors and prefer to go with dark black ink and shading when getting tribal tattoos on back. Masculine images of flames, thorns, snakes and knives are used to depict tribal designs on men's back. Feminine patterns like roses, lilies, mermaids, and butterfly tattoos are used as tattoos for women. Some of the tribal back tattoo designs you could explore are described below.
