Beautiful collection of tribal tattoo designs used by tribes and cultures of North & South America
The art of tattooing has been found all over the world, from the Ice Age to our own day. And though aboriginal people from Arabia to America to the South Seas have traditionally practiced it, tattooing has lately been on the decline among tribal cultures – even as it has become fashionable in the first world. This book showcases the rich variety and sometimes surprising similarities of these disappearing tribal tattoo designs, both representative and abstract, employed as religious symbols, talismans, charms, indicators of status or position, or simply as adornment.
As people around the world rediscover the art and traditions of indigenous peoples, tribal images have become a leading source for tattoo designs. This fully illustrated handbook shows nearly 100 tattoos from around the world, developed by Maori and Aboriginal tribes and the native peoples of Africa, America, Asia and Europe. Tribal Tattoos recounts the history of body decoration, explains the meanings and myths behind the symbols, and offers many patterns that can be combined into new motifs. All the designs included can be enlarged and traced to decorate any part of the body. Full instructions for temporary tattoos using henna or other body paints, are also included.
An ethnography of the tattoo community, tracing the practice’s transformation from a mostly male, working-class phenomenon to one adapted and propagated by a more middle-class movement in the period from the 1970s to the present.
For thousands of years the Indigenous peoples of North America have produced astonishingly rich and diverse forms of tattooing. Long neglected by anthropologists and art historians, tattooing was a time-honored practice that expressed the patterns of tribal social organization and religion, while also channelling worlds inhabited by deities, spirits, and the ancestors. "Tattoo Traditions of Native North America" explores the many facets of indelible Indigenous body marking across every cultural region of North America. As the first book on the subject, it breaks new ground on one of the least-known mediums of Native American expressive culture that nearly disappeared from view in the twentieth century, until it was reborn in recent decades.
Many books over the years have promised to tell the true story of the Native American Indians. Many, however, have been filled with misinformation or derogatory views. Finally here is a book that the Native American can believe in. This well researched book tells the true story of Native American accomplishments, challenges and struggles and is a gold mine for the serious researcher. It includes extensive notes to the text and over 500 photographs and illustrations -- many that have never before been published. The author, after 20 years of research, has attempted to provide the world with the most truthful and accurate portrayal of the Native American Indians. Every serious researcher and Native American family should have this ground-breaking book.
