50 Of The Best Aztec Tattoos

Aztec Tattoos

Aztec tattoos are typically done in black and grey and in a realistic style. Popular Aztec Tattoos include sculptures like the sun stone, a giant twenty four ton stone depicting the five worlds of the sun. Jaguar and eagle warriors, a warrior or woman dressed in either real animal skin or a decorated head piece, any of the 100s of aztec gods, or skulls.

Aztec History

The Aztec empire was was one of the most ruthless and advanced civilisations located in what is now known as Mexico city. From 1300 to 1521, The Aztecs were in constant war, known as the flower wars, the warriors did not try to kill their enemies in battle but their aim was to capture them for later sacrifice. The more enemies a warrior could capture the higher up the noble hierarchy he could go, the best and most prolific warriors would become a Jaguar warrior or eagle warrior, these both are a common Aztec tattoo.
A big part of the Aztec culture was human sacrifice, they were considered debt paid to the gods for giving them life. Most sacrifices were done to their captured enemies, before their death they were made to drink pulque, a strong alcoholic drink mixed with mind altering herbs.  Once under the effects of the pulque they were restrained on a stone on top of a temple where their beating heart would be pulled out and shown to the gods.
