Guys Polynesian half sleeve tattoo with torch and flower
Polynesian tattoo designs are commonly used in half sleeve tattoos because many different tribal patterns can be incorporated together to form a large and unique tat. This guy’s Polynesian tattoo features a large torch inked on his right shoulder and surrounded by traditional Polynesian tattoo designs. The shoulder tattoo also depicts a black and white flower up near his neck. The most prominent tribal symbol used in the Polynesian tattoo is the spear head, which is formed by connecting a series of arrows end to end and pointing in the same direction. Tribal spear head tattoos are traditionally inked on the bodies of warriors, and are meant to symbolize courage and strength. This guy’s shoulder tattoo incorporates other geometric tribal symbols, which extend from his shoulder down to his elbow.
