Tribal Heart with Barbed Wire Temporary Tattoo For hundreds of years, tribes have marked their members using tribal tattoos. Often, these tattoos conveyed what they believed spiritually or how they thought about the world around them, or even the afterlife. This heart tribal tattoo blends the age old tribal look with a modern symbol for love, the red heart. Red is the color of passion and enthusiasm, an expression of the power of love. These tattoos attach easily to gift bag tags as an extra something to go along with a birthday, anniversary, or graduation present. It also makes a great fundraising item or party favor. They're ideal for the small of the back, shoulder, or around the arm, leg, wrist, or ankle as a band.
