Polynesian armband tattoo on guys bicep
Tribal armband tattoos like this one are becoming more and more popular among guys and girls alike. This guy has a cool Polynesian tattoo inked in black and white as an armband on his right bicep. The arm tattoo for men includes some traditional Polynesian tattoo symbols, including waves, and other geometric patterns that make the tattoo look tribal. Although some people opt for tribal tattoos simply because they like the way the ink looks, most traditional Polynesian tattoos actually have an important cultural significance related to the wearer’s tribe, social standing and rank. In some cases, Polynesians got tribal tattoos to honor the dead, to protect themselves from harm or to ward off evil spirits.
