This tribal style tattoo I did yesterday has all the elements of the designs popular 25 years ago, the ones that I built my career installing. Tribal Celtic tree of life, and sun and moon. And on the lower back, which in this case was the placement of choice for an extremely pale gal so the stark crisp ink of the black graphic shapes stands out very well defined. As the tattoo artist community now moans about the current trend for word tattoos we do tend to forget how a well-done tribal lower back tattoo can be quite lovely.
Bold tribal style graphics form a Tree of Life, a Sun and Moon, tying them all together into a statement of unity and convergence.
