Tribal Tattoo Galleries – Find Your Perfect Tribal Tattoo Design

March 31st, 2009

Looking for a tribal tattoo design? Are you someone who doesn’t want to spend hours in a tattoo parlour searching through their design books? Then you are in luck, now there is a wealth of tribal tattoo galleries online that you can utilize instead.

These sites allow you ample time to go through the various designs they have available all in the comfort of your own home. Then when you have found a tattoo design you like you just print it off and take it to your local tattoo parlour to have it applied to your skin.

But you need to be careful when it comes to which of the many tribal tattoo galleries you should be using. Below we offer some tips that you will find helpful in selecting the right gallery to get a design from.

Tip 1 – Never use free sites as these simply contain hundred if not thousands of generic tattoos which may look great on the screen or paper when printed out, but when applied to the skin don’t. If you want a great and unique looking tribal tattoo then it is important you select galleries where you may have to pay a fee to purchase the design to download it in order to print a copy of it off.

Tip 2 – Look for those tribal tattoo galleries they offer more than these sorts of designs. Instead go for those that offer you every possible design you can think off from tribal to Egyptian to Celtic. Not only may you find a design that you like but it may be one that is suitable to be converted into a great looking tattoo on your body as well.

Lars Krutak, Tattoo Hunter

March 29th, 2009
If you haven’t had a chance to catch the latest tattoo reality show, you will want to tune in to the Discovery Channel and check out Tattoo Hunter. It’s actually a documentary-style show in which the “host,” tattoo anthropologist Lars Krutak, visits some of the most remote parts of the world, seeking tattoos from members of the few remaining authentic tribes.

Lars has actually been a technical adviser for Vanishing Tattoo, the renowned online tattoo museum that centers around the search for the “last authentic tattoos.” Now Lars attempts to integrate himself as an honorary member of the ancient tribes he visits, thus earning him the right to also receive a tattoo that is typically reserved for its own.

What I like best about the show is that Lars isn’t one of those typical anthropologists who seem to be prepared for and unsurprised by anything that they encounter while exploring unfamiliar people and territory. He willingly participates in all of the rituals and shows the utmost respect toward the people he is visiting, but he isn’t afraid to grimace while eating grubs or look “foolish” by losing valiantly in the games played among the tribal men. In the two episodes that have been aired so far, Lars manages to win the tattoo artist over and win the coveted prize of an authentic tattoo. His genuine and down-to-earth nature is sure to win you over as well. I think this is time much better spent than watching the over-dramatized tattoo “reality” shows.
