Sometimes even using the ancient tools and hand-poked tattoo technique.

Learning from archeological documents and the last tattoo veterans, young tattoo artists are travelling to perpetuate the passion of ethnic tattoo.

Here is just a glimpse of some cool tribal tattoo artists from everywhere in the planet.
