The Aztecs were a tribe that lived from the 13th to the 16th century in and around the area that is now called Mexico.
Aztec tattoo designs were used to mark a person’s status, to show a warrior's rank and accomplishments. Nowadays people are interested in Aztec tribal tattoos because of their symbolic meaning, to honor their heritage or because they feel a connection with the ancient and powerful culture of the Aztecs.
On the other hand, one type of Mexican or Hispanic tattoo has been current for some time, and that is the gang or prison related tattoo.

Before you decide on a Mexican tattoo design, do a bit of research about the mythology that engendered it, and the precise meaning of the image you are choosing.
Some of Aztec, Maya and Inca mythology is inspiring, but some of it tends to be a bit dark, so you need to make sure that you don't end up with an image whose meaning you aren't completely comfortable with! Religion and the many gods were very important in the Aztec culture, a lot of the daily life of the Aztecs was meant to honor and please the gods.
Quetzalcoatl, the god of weather, creativity and fertility, was the most powerful of all Aztec gods.

To honor their heritage and show their Mexican pride, some adorn themselves with for example a Mexican flag tattoo.
