Totem Face Spirit Aztec Mayan – Maori Tiki Tattoo
This tattoo design is a bit random for me but the idea just popped out one day on my sketch book and I thought it interesting enough to redo at a design here.
I tried to think of a name for it but this Totem Face Spirit Aztec Mayan Tattoo is the best I got. It kind of reminds me of a Maori tiki face but none of the shapes or lines are Maori to me they are more Aztec or Mayan style of lines and circles.
Thanks for having a look at my design.
