ahah yeah i know, im only 152lbs. But the tattoo is under my arm around the elbow area so the picture is as an odd angle and makes my arm looks alot smaller too.
Those look incredibly similar to some Polynesian tattoos - specifically Samoan & Hawaiian. I didn't realize that tattoos were prevalent in Native American culture as they are in Polynesian culture. Interesting.
Very good observation, the arm bands are in fact Polynesian.
like i said, the cultural/ history is sometimes only loosely tied in, the upper armband, its just a polynesian design i used just as a design for an armband, nothing more, BUT this is the back of my arm, on the other side it is the 4 feathers hanging off the armband that represent my 4 family members thats the Cherokee tie in, the lower armband, is also a Polynesian design, with Cherokee symbols worked into the story telling. My tattoos are very neo traditional.
This is the front side of the the arm the seahawk is on the back of in advance SORRY for the shirtless picture, its the only one i have of the whole arm.
To the rest of my 12th family, im glad you all like it, I pour my heart into this team like you all, and i felt it had earned its spot on there.
When i go to get it finished, there is a blank spot around the back of my elbow, im going to the the feather totem design they have on the stripes of the pants, im getting that to go with it.
