AZTEC TATTOOS by Juno (custom tattoo designer) :
First question: who were the Aztecs? Aztecs are an ethnic groups of central Mexico, particularly those groups who spoke the Nahuatl language and who dominated large parts of Mesoamerica from the 14th to 16th centuries.the Aztecs settled down in the swampy land around Lake Texcoco, Valley of Mexico. Often the term “Aztec” refers exclusively to the Mexican people of Tenochtitlan (now the location of Mexico City),who referred to themselves as Mēxihcah Tenochcah.
Brave warriors, marvelous engineers, great artists,their art and mythology are great to create very masculine, strong and beautifull tattoos.
Ancient Aztec art was primarily a form of religious expression and a means for paying tribute to their gods. In addition, various forms of Aztec art were used to assist in communication. Aztec art such as pictographs, paintings and warrior drawings can still be seen on the walls of their temples and within their ancient artifacts.
These beautifully crafted designs are still admired today and they are a fountain of inspiration to make the most strong and masculine designs for tattoos.
AZTEC DESIGNS and SYMBOLS:
Aztec Calendar is the most popular element in Aztec Tattoos. This design is used as main element for upper sleeve tattoos (shoulder area) and chalf chest tattoos.
Feathered Serpent: this image represent the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, one of the main deities of pre-Hispanic civilizations.
Tezcatlipoca: He is the Lord of heaven and earth, source of life, guardianship and protection of man, source of power and happiness, owner of battles, omnipresent, strong and invisible.
Aztec Warrior: a strong style of design like an “Aztec Gladiator”, as symbol of protection and strength to who wears the tattoo. A female warrior looks good too.
Other aztec designs to add: Aztec temple, warrior head, skull, aztec alphabet, jaguar, eagle.
Sometimes I’ve make tattoos combining Aztec symbols and characters plus Polynesian art: they looks great!.
The Design Process : “Based on your design info I’ll draw up a rough draft for you to consider and then with your input will refine the drawing until you are completely satisfied with the end result. The final design will be sent to you via email along with a made to fit line drawing ready for you to print out and take to your favorite tattoo artist.”
