The first thing to remember is that people have been wearing tattoos for millennia, but that’s the point. It’s part of our culture, what makes us us.
So yes, tribal tattoos are becoming a less common sight. But I see a lot of tribal tattoos for every other aspect of life, from the clothes you chose to wear on a holiday to the way you sit at breakfast when you get up at 4 am.
There’s a fine line between being traditional and being trendy. If you start with the wrong side of the line, then you don’t stand a chance. Tribal tattoos are the traditional way.
There are some who say it’s cultural appropriation to wear tribal tattoos, but I don’t believe it. People should always have the right to choose what they feel authentic about.
You know, if you were to give a tattoo to the next person sitting across from you, do you think you could tell them what you’re wearing?
I don’t think so. I think it might show off their tribal identity. And then you’re just showing off in front of a stranger.

What would you tell a tattoo artist if they told you your tattoo was tribal?
I’d be like, “You guys need to fucking fix it.” Then I’d get the fuck out. Because they can’t fucking make something that looks like a tribal design. But you can have tattoos that look like tribal tattoos. Tribal tattoos look like tribal tattoos.
You guys have been tattooing women for many years, correct?
We did a lot of tattoos for different bands. For bands like NWA and UGK we were the first. And UGK started with a group of women. We just stuck with that thing.
What’s the future at Pigeons And Planes for tattoo artists?
We’re going to move to a new studio that looks more like a studio, with a lot more space. We have a lot more free time now. But I don’t know if we’re going to have a tattoo artists’ room, or just a tattoo studio.
But it’s always hard for me and Josh to make it work as a team. I see a lot of pain in my partner’s tattoos, and I get super frustrated when they have to have surgeries
