Aztec Tattoos and their Meanings
One of the oldest traditions of tattoos, the Aztec tattoo art is popular and flourishing, even in today's times. The aspect of spirituality, which is associated with the art of tattooing in Aztec culture, gives it a completely different meaning and touch. Aztec tattoo art is representative of the Aztec culture and traditions. The origin of the Aztec tattoo is in Mexico. The Aztec Civilization was dominant in Central Mexico from the 14th to 16th century. Spanish colonizers are said to be the destroyers of this civilization. It is however very difficult to say whether today's Mexicans derive their ancestry from the Aztecs. Aztecs have great mythology, which is where Aztec tattoos and their meanings come from.
