One thought on “Lexicon of Tribal Tattoos (book)

  1. Looks like a must have book of tattoo motifs from ancient cultures around the world! At Eternal Expression Tattoo & Piercing Studio located in Bangalore, this would be a great addition to our tattoo book collection!
    I see mentions of a few traditional India Tattoo symbols. That’s great to revive and capture these symbols with deeper hidden meanings.
