Tattoos of the Mexican Culture

About Tattoos of the Mexican Culture

Traditional Mexican culture is very rich, diverse, and above all very interesting and exiting to explore.

The reason for this is the fact that Mexican culture is actually a huge conglomerate of many other cultures.

Some of those cultures are distinct and almost forgotten (e.g. Toltec, Mixtec, Zapotec, etc) other cultures are close to be distinct but are well remembered (Aztec and Mayan cultures), and yet there are cultures that have influenced greatly the traditional Mexican culture and are still very much ďaliveĒ and flourishing (Spanish culture).

Even though great majority of Mexicans (about 95%) speak Spanish, and are Christians, they didnít forget about their native Mesoamerican roots. In fact, Mexicans are very proud of having the great cultures such as the Aztec and Mayan cultures as part of their origin.

Since the Aztecs and Maya were very fond of the tattoos it is safe to say that tattoos have been part of the traditional Mexican culture from the very beginning.

Probably the most popular tattoos of the Mexican culture are the tattoos of the Aztec religious symbolism and achievements. For example, the Aztec Sun God or other popular Aztec gods (they had many gods) and the famous Aztec calendar.

Another very popular Mexican culture tattoo is the tattoo of the Mexican flag. Mexicans love and adore their flag; so much so, that they have the biggest monumental flags in the world. They also have a civil oath to the flag, flag songs and the national holiday dedicated to their flag (Mexican Flag Day).

Therefore, it is completely normal that Mexicans love to have the tattoo of the Mexican flag on their shoulders, arms or some other part of their bodies.

Finally, the third group of the most popular Mexican culture tattoos is called the Mexican religious tattoos. Mexican religious tattoos include the images of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Jesus Christ, Biblical Saints, Mexican cross, etc.
