Polynesian tribal calf tattoos

Polynesian tribal calf tattoos
The “tiki” variety of Polynesian tattoos is a popular tattoo design for men, and this guy has a tiki Polynesian tattoo inked in black and white on the backs of both of his legs. The tiki men depicted in the calf tattoos are slightly different from one another, but the overall Polynesian tattoo design is very similar. According to Polynesian culture, tikis were considered ancestors of humans and were believed to be the forces that defeated bad energy. In this guy’s tribal leg tattoo and in most other Polynesian tattoos, tiki men are depicted with their eyes closed, since they are known to have the ability to smell trouble approaching.
