    MIAMI INK- tattoo question

    hi guys, i've got a mystery for you:

    One of the tattoo artists off miami ink, Chris Nunez, has a tattoo on his top arm, i've included a picture:

    MIAMI INK- tattoo question

    I saw a show ages back on discorvery i think, that was about an eastern mountain tribe from whom this design originated. It was part of the adult initiation ceremony if i remember right (i probably don't).

    Does anyone know what tribe this is from?/ Why it is done and how long they've been doing it? The whole thing fascinates me but i can't remember the detail of it at all. Thanks for any help!

    it's a traditional borneo rose tattoo...

    not sure about specifics on them, but http://wiki.bmezine.com/index.php/Borneo_Rose
    should explain a bit.
