Polynesian half sleeve arm tattoo
While some Polynesian tattoos feature a main image surrounded by tribal designs, this guy’s tribal tattoo is made up entirely of tribal symbols. The tattoo is inked in black and white and begins on his right shoulder, reaching down his upper arm, almost to his elbow for a half sleeve tattoo. There are a variety of different tribal designs used in the arm tattoo, including the tribal spear head symbol, which traditionally represents courage and strength. The spear head design is made up of a series of arrows connected end to end and pointing in the same direction, and they can also symbolize a warrior or the sting of an animal, such as a sting ray. The shapes used in the arm tattoo are very geometric and therefore create a cool near-symmetrical Polynesian tattoo.
