Glow in the Dark Pattern Band Tribal tattoos typically draw from the art style of Aztec, Polynesian, and Mayan tribes throughout history. For some tribes, the designs resemble a spiritual belief, while others used the tattoo designs to camouflage in wooded areas during battle. More recently, the tribes use tattooing for self-expression, social status, and identification. You can apply this temporary armband to express any of these ideas, and it also glows in the dark. The unique design of this tattoo actually resembles swirling letters in the alphabet, and it is a great addition.
