The area now known as Mexico city was at the heart of the Aztec empire and many ruins and monuments still remain within the city, marking the art and culture of the war-like Aztec peoples.The History of Tribal Aztec TattoosThe Aztecs were a very proud race. Warriors who were captured in battle would often submit to their captors and willingly allow themselves to become blood sacrifices. These sacrificial events drew large crowds of people who would watch as the captured warriors were led to the top of the Aztec pyramid temples by priests.
At the peak of the pyramid a short ceremony would take place, in which the warrior was bent backwards over a stone.
Priests would stretch his body taut as another priests sliced open the warrior’s belly and reached inside him, removing the still-beating heart and holding it up for the crowd to see. The body of the warrior would then be tumbled in a bloody mess down the steps of the pyramid. Tribal Aztec tattoos are often chosen by modern warriors; athletes and fighters who appreciate the strength and honor of the Aztec warriors. The skulls were a display of power – a show of how many people that particular sect of Aztecs had captured and slain. This connection with death and displaying human skulls may be one of the cultural practices that led up to the use of sugar skulls to honor the dead in Mexico.

These symbols are sometimes used in tattoos because of what each symbol represents, such as the power of the eagle or jaguar.

Quetzalcoatl was believed to be the bringer of life, the god who gave of his own blood to raise the bones of the deceased and create the Aztec people.
