Native American Tattoos are a true example of cultural expression through tattoo art and gives others an inspirational inside look at Native American culture as well as American Indian culture in some cases. The earliest settlers in the United States were well known for their very visible and symbolic tattoos that they still identify with today. The original Native American Tattoos were extremely spiritual and were done as a right of passage and as a religious practice. Always spiritually aligned with earth and its inhabitants, Native American tattoos usually depict wildlife such as birds, hawks, wolves, and often included a spiritual name that was associated to them. These super meaningful tattoos are rich in culture and pack a lot of meaning. They are a great choice for those that are seeking to display their oneness with the earth and its elements.
It is no mystery that the dreamcatcher is by far the one of the most popular Native American tattoo designs, if not just wildly popular on its very own. A dreamcatcher is said to protect you from nightmares, ward off bad spirits and offer an overall feeling of protection and safety. Dreamcatchers were originally used on the children of tribes to protect them from ominous spirits and keep them safe. The best part is that a dreamcatcher tattoo design can be creatively manipulated to suit the party getting the tattoo. With bright colors and multiple stylings, the dreamcatcher is a fixture in modern day tattoo culture.
The elements also play a huge role in Native American tattooing such as earth, wind, fire, and water are all elements that are regularly found in these spiritually motivated tattoo designs. Native Americans were well known as hunters and gatherers making them value the gifts that the land gave them such as animals for their meat and pelts. Dreamcatchers and other forms of Native American Tattooing all draw great influence from the earth and its elements making it a highly spiritual and popular tattoo design.
