Indian Tattoos

Indian tattoos are a way to represent the origin from which our ancestors come. The aboriginal culture was very believing in regard to their gods and spirits of kind energy. For this reason, it is common to see tattoos of Indian gods tattooed on the skin.

Indian tattoos can be very varied as they can include feathers, amulets and other symbols related to strength and security. They are usually done in both the man’s body and the woman’s and almost always represent something important for that person. In fact, they are associated with values ​​such as protection and respect.

Within the Indian tattoos, we find two great types: the Indian tattoos Apaches and American Indian tattoos. Here we explain the characteristics of each of them: Indian race


The Apache tribes are some of the most renowned among all the Native American peoples. The Apaches were nomads who lived by hunting wild animals such as the buffalo, from which they extracted the skin to make their clothing.

The Apache Indians are believed to have been among the first to learn to ride and ride horses. Hence the idea of ​​converting the Indian into a symbol of the skilled, strong, dominant and powerful man.

The most common tattoo of Apache Indians is that of the indigenous face, with its classic and distinctive feather crown, how it looks like:
