Define Who You Are with Today's Tribal Designs

Each culture of the world has its own style of tattoo, and our ancestors proudly wore these designs to identity family history, achievements, and skills. Today, men and women are again wearing tribal tattoos to reflect individuality and define their life experiences.
Now, from Lora Irish, author of the best-selling Great Book of Tattoo Designs, comes Modern Tribal Tattoo Designs-a collection of original tribal-inspired elements and complete designs, including spiked spirals, ragged curved lines, bold blackwork, henna designs, and many other stylized motifs. A list of attributes and symbolic descriptions will help you personalize your design, and a detailed tutorial will guide those who want to design their own unique body art. Whether you're looking to proclaim your love, bravery, strength, or courage, with more than 350 designs to choose from, you're sure to find a tattoo that distinguishes you from the crowd.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I found both the Modern Tribal Tattoo and 101 Artistic Relief Patterns to be an inspiring collection of designs, for both within and beyond their intended medium. To be sure, there were a number of patterns particularly in Lora Irish's book that could easily be applied as a decorative element to the ceramic surface, whether brushed or carved! In fact, it would be lovely to see a book that describes the techniques of creating these designs in clay as well!

Once more, all of us potters here at the Bamboushay studio were delighted to find fresh ideas for our surface decoration, especially from such an unexpected resource as tattoo and wood carving designs. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and would certainly be happy to share in the same way should have any further inquiries into the world of clay!

Rebel Ink
This book is perfect for the tattoo aficionado, artist or anyone looking to make a statement.
Urban Ink
A collection of neo-tribal designs that shows many of the qualities that artists look for in their designs, such as love, strength, and loyalty.
Skin Deep Magazine
The opening pages provide a truly excellent tutorial in how to approach the creation of custom designs . . . . Overall this is a great tool.
