The Aztec empire was an organization that occupied the central area of Mesoamerica. It is the most characteristic motives of this culture that are chosen for tattoo art. The Aztec tattoo is a representation of the history, religion and culture of this people. There are many men, more than women, who choose the arm to capture these reasons.
The sun was the god most revered by the Aztecs and this is the design most used by those who choose this theme. In fact, what is known as the Aztec calendar is actually the monolith of the sun god, one of the oldest monoliths of this culture. It is a stone drawing that in the center has a face, the sun god, the other rings that surround it correspond to the months and days of the calendar year.
The Aztec calendar design of different colors, shapes or shades is the most chosen design, but there are also very colorful motifs, most of them imitate the stone.

This symbol belongs to the Aztec Astronomy, that ethnic group that populated Yucatán, Campeche and Quintana Roo (Mexico) many years ago. On this occasion you can see numerous and different small motifs within the circle.
In this second image we can see a citizen of the Aztec civilization with a mask that has been tattooed on the leg. The Aztec is synonymous with intelligence since during its civilization numerous discoveries were made so that all Aztec tattoos have a common meaning that is intelligence.
Among the most typical designs we have the Aztec suns since the sun for them was something very special.
Aztec design in hand. In my opinion it is a fairly large design for the hand since it occupies it whole.

I really am not sure that it is an Aztec symbol. What do you think?
The image quality is not the best but it looks perfectly that it is an Aztec tattoo.
Black ink design in the central part of the back.
This symbol may be one of the most common in Aztec tattoos but this time it is done with a multitude of colors, something that is not so common.
This first image of the collection is quite tattooed on the chest. He is an Aztec god.
Various designs of this type in the lower back. The photo does not have excellent quality and the designs cannot be appreciated.
The forearm can be a fantastic place to decorate your body with one of these designs that men like so much. Without a doubt, they are perfect for decorating a large area since with the other designs you can only cover a small part. In this particular one, there is a good mix of Aztec symbols that we have seen before.
It is the second hand we see with this design or very similar. This time it is made with many light colors.
Forearm with an Aztec design. The photo does not have fantastic quality.
I am not sure but I believe that these warriors are "cuāuhpipiltin" which is the name that the eagle warriors received and that they were the only ones who could be noble and ascend on the social ladder. They have several backs and weapons in their hands.
So far we had not seen many designs on the leg. Here we have the first one and it is also a fairly typical tattoo within this type.
I am not sure that this belongs to this category. If you are an expert in Aztec tattoos and symbols leave us a comment.
Very original design made with Aztec symbols of various colors. It is one of the best I've seen.
The back is also a great place for a boy or man.
I am not particularly an expert in Aztec symbols so I cannot give a correct description about this image. I have no idea what this symbol means.
Aztec dragon tattooed on the arm of a young woman.
Some designs are impossible to describe. What can I say about this image? I'll try. It is an impossible being to describe with giant teeth and with a tongue also quite horrible.
I am sure that you have not seen this design on other websites. It's the first time I saw something like that. A magnificent design on the back.
So far I have not seen many tattoos on the knee. He is an Aztec man with his mouth open and showing his teeth.
Aztec snakes on the back of a boy who has chosen this tattoo. For sure it means something important.
This type of design on the right arm. A good place for a design of these although it is too big in my opinion.
Different styles. I am not sure if they are Aztec tattoos or not.
Aztec woman with a hat made of leaves.
They look like Romans. Chest tattoo.
He is certainly an Aztec Indian. This guy sure loves everything related to the Aztec world.
A very common drawing within this type.
The same design as the previous one but a little different.
In this image we can see an Aztec necklace or bracelet. Simply wonderful.
It is one of the largest and largest designs we have seen here. He has his entire back tattooed and arms too.
Several designs, one on top of the other on the right arm to the elbow.
Again, another Aztec Indian girl.
I miss this picture with a woman with beautiful eyes.
It is very similar to the previous one but this one also has a dog or cat at the bottom.
In the twin or calf.
The same tattoo but seen from different angles.
Shoulder, chest, arm and biceps. A good drawing for a young man.
It seems that they are Aztec gods. You need to hire a good tattoo artist because there are some designs that are difficult and any tattoo artist is not able to do them.
Most images in this gallery are symbols. The symbology of this civilization is very rich.
Skull with jewels and an Indian hat.
In this drawing the tattoo artist has used many colors. For my taste it is not great but there are people who surely opt for these designs.
Aztec woman tattooed on the biceps of a young man. It is a medium size design and very visible.
Again we find a very famous symbol.
This calf drawing is great. I love it and only made with black ink.
This man has his entire back tattooed with a giant design. I do not like such large drawings and less this color.
I don't know the meaning of this design. If anyone knows, leave a comment and I will review the article.
Again, another back completely tattooed. In this case the drawing is horrible for my point of view. It is also completely black.
It seems that she is an Aztec queen with a hat or hat and that covers the entire arm.
Here we have another drawing on the arm but this time the design is not as beautiful as the previous one. It has another crown but at the top it has something that we don't know what it is.
It is the third drawing we see on the arm followed. Princess with another crown and feathers on top.
A drawing where an ancient Aztec goddess and the pyramids of Mesoamerica appear.
Knight or fighter with other drawings that are not well appreciated from this angle. We need another image to be able to describe it properly.
Throughout the center of the drawing there is an eye half open, half closed.
A slightly complicated design to describe.
In the center of the back, an Aztec god surrounded by other tattoos. It has a kind of tattooed bird on its left.
Tattoo on the forearm. We have not seen many of this type in that part of the body. Something that is not usually very common because the forearm is a fairly chosen place.
Skull with a fairly rare mask made with plants and flowers.
It is certainly the typical tattoo design of this style. I'm sure you know several people who have this design or a very similar one.
There are several Aztec symbols that appear in this tattoo. It is a large design tattooed on a man's shoulder. These tattoos are more common in boys than in girls. Check out the gallery and you'll see that I'm right.
Fantastic and super difficult to make this tattoo. I am sure that the tattoo artist has had to spend a lot of time to tattoo this design.
It seems that he is an Aztec God with a woman in his arms. A very touching image.
Without a doubt, it is one of the greatest drawings I've seen on the arm. It occupies one hundred percent of the arm.
It is really difficult to describe a drawing like this. What is true is that it is a tattoo made with many colors.
Most of these drawings are large and in some cases huge like this one we are seeing here.
All are not Aztec tattoos because this man has many designs and only on the right part of his body. A rather strange tattoo.
I am sure that we have seen this design before because it is one of the most common in this style.
And we end up with a design that we don't know exactly if it belongs to this style or not.
|Most tattooed body areas||Exclusively areas where large tattoos such as the back, arms, belly including the trunk and chest, legs and ribs fit.|
|Most used colors or inks||Various shades of brown or black. All colors without life. There are some who use bright colors but do not represent 10% of all.|
|More men or more women? Is it a female or male tattoo?||More men I have seen few women with these symbols.|
|What is their size? Are they usually large, small or medium?||Big or giant|
|Symbolism or meaning of these motives||It depends on the design we talk about.|
What does a girl think about these designs?
At another time we talked about the Egyptian symbology and how rich it was in terms of symbols and objects to be worthy of tattooing. Similar to the Aztecs, there are few elements that this civilization left us and that today are protagonists in body art. Despite this, I prefer these designs in boys more than in us, I don't know if it will be because of the size, which is usually large and that makes me relate them more with boys than with girls.
