Animals
Of course all native and tribal baesd cutlures have a deep connection witht he eartha nd the animals that
live with the earth. This goes all the way back to our hunter and gathering ancestory. The cave
paintings of Lascaux and some of the earliest artistic expressions done by any human involved animals.
Animals in tribal cutlures are seen as gods or the gods are embeded into animals. The example
everyone will know is the totem animal from many of the Native American tribes. The worship and
deep fascination with animals can be seen in all tribal cutlures and thus many of the tattoo designs also
reflect this art form and a sort of animal worship. So if you are looking to get a truly tribal tattoo
design you might want to think in terms of an animal and a totem or sorts that speak to you or an
animal you feel a close connection to. For example a tattoo design for strength might be a bear. A
possible design for living a carefree life might be a turtle. These animals can easily be adapted and
integrated with most of the traditional Polynesian tribal tattoo designs.

Patterns
Another theme that is used frequently in Polynesian tattooing no matter the tribe or peple are patterns.
You see this in just about every sample of traditional tribal cultures art be it the Navajo woven rug
patterns or the Hawaiian patterns seen in their clothing and textile designs patterns are a popular theme
