It is said that, every tattoo artist has got a skull in her/his portfolio. The Native American tattoos are also a popular hit.

In the 90's, Native (also called Indian) chief portraits were a common request in tattoo parlors. With their impressive feathered headdress, wise wrinkles and spiritual eyes, they were a strong symbol of strength and wisdom, even for a non-Native descendant. But the fad disappeared, judged too cliché and silly, just as the pinup girl dressed in native clothes. But with the rise of neo traditional tattoo, the renewal of the American traditional and the explosion of the realistic style, Native inspiration is coming back.

With their fantastic legends, beautiful philosophy of life and love for nature, the Native people are now echoing in our society craving for true values, ecology and badass heroes to respect and admire. Native Americans are not the indians from the cowboy stories anymore, they are the guide of a new generation who want to hear the voice of nature again and gain knowledge from its ancestors. A way to celebrate these amazing people is indeed a great tattoo.

These 25 beautiful Native American tattoos are showing ink lovers who wanted to pay a tribute to Native culture their very own beauty and strength.
