Whether you are a novice when it comes to tattooing or you happen to a pro, you'll see that the tribal arm tattoo is popping up everywhere. If you happen to live in Southern California, this is no surprise; after all, there are flower designs, turtles and dolphins everywhere. The bold bright colors of Hawaiian and Hawaiian inspired artwork make it a great choice when you are looking for something that will set you apart from the rest, and you will soon realize that you can draw your inspiration from almost anywhere. Take a look around and see what designs appeal to you. This article will discuss the tribal arm tattoo and related subjects.

When you are looking for the roots of the Hawaiian design, you'll find that it has a close competitor in the form of the tribal tattoos. Tribal tattoos have been popular with people who are interested in tattoo and they are beginning to have the same history and culture that go along with things like the WWII hula dancer. If you are interested in tattoos that have a little bit of history, you'll discover that there are many great options open to you.

Of course, remember that this is a subject that does come with its own brand of controversy. In many ways, it is an argument that is very similar to that which accompanies Kanji Tattoos and Japanese art tattoos. I call this the Disney effect, or essentially, it is what you get when you take the designs from one culture and then do not pay attention to how well you are depicting them. An example would be if you happened to be in China and someone told you about a really great American restaurant. If you wanted food that tasted of home, you might be very interested in what this restaurant had to offer, wouldn't you? Then, when you get there, you realize that the entire place is done up with amazingly tacky art from the fifties and the food tastes extremely strange. It might have some similarities with the food that you were interested in eating, but it would not be the real thing at all. You may feel pretty disappointed, and at the end of the day, it would very much feel as though you were being misrepresented in a very real way.

With that in mind, remember that tattoos often have the same controversy. If you get a tattoo that is part of another culture, you are going to want to go to a professional. Don't just have your friend copy a kanji character from a book for you, and don't trust a piece of Internet flash artwork to be exactly what it says it is. Go to a custom tattoo designer and get the research that comes with their service. Since tattoos are more or less permanent then you need to make sure that it is going to be something you can be proud of. Remember that because Hawaiian tattoos are so big, you are going to invest a fair amount of pain, time and money into it. This information should go a long way toward that tribal arm tattoo you have been eying!
