10 Exquisite Native American Tattoos

People tend to get tattoos that speak to their personal values and sensibilities, which is why most tattoo enthusiasts tend to get at least one tattoo of spiritual or religious significance. The Native Americans who originally inhabited North America were very spiritual people. They believed in harmony and coexistence with nature, an ideal that still resonates with people today. From buffalo skulls to dreamcatchers, there’s a lot of spiritual imagery to choose from Native American culture and lore. A lot of it is considered fascinating and artistic in-and-of itself, making Native American imagery a natural choice for tattoo designs for people of all ethnic backgrounds.

The synergy practically speaks for itself, which is why a lot of Native American-centric tattoos can be found on people who don’t have any blood relation or ties to Native American cultures.

Maybe the next time you step foot into a tattoo parlor you’ll think about getting a Native American tattoo of your own.Read More »

This got me to thinking about our Jack Redcloud, the tattooist who made his name tattooing in Brooklyn, New York. Unlike the Indian chief, Jack Redcloud the tattooist always spelled his last name as one word. Maybe this was out of respect for the famous chief. At one time his shop was known as Redcloud Jack’s, but in the later years he was referred to as Jack Redcloud…Read More »
