Looking for a stunning tattoo design for your arm? The world of tribal designs is a rich and never-ending source of inspiration for men’s tattoos. The muscular feel of a man’s arm goes very well with the powerful lines of tribal designs. You can get yourself tattooed along the upper arm and continue the design right down to your wrist.
The beauty of tribal designs is that they express so much with minimal strokes. Usually, the color palette is a restricted one, featuring black, a combination of black and red, or a deep navy blue. The limited color palette brings a strong relief to the graceful lines used in tribal designs. The rounded upper arm offers a great surface to ink a perfect circle and fill it with tribal motifs. Cosmic waves and the flow of life can be expressed in bold lines along the periphery of this circle. Spirals, symbolizing the primitive view that life flows in spirals, often feature in tribal tattoo art. Arm Tribal Tattoos do not have to be huge to be meaningful. A simple interlocking tiny pattern can show as much of the flow of life and creativity, as a large design inked all along the arm.
