Berber Tattoos

Berber Tattoos – Tattooing has a long and complex history in Africa. The Berber tribe, specifically, has been engaged in tattooing symbolic motifs on their bodies for centuries. Berber tattoo motifs range from animal and plant figures, to spiritual and abstract designs.

These tattoos were used for many different purposes, but almost all of them are seen as a way to ward off or protect oneself from evil spirits. Berber tattoo designs can be found plentifully on vintage Moroccan rugs.
