Borneo scorpion
Valiance, protection

View this photo!
This tattoo is typically used by men. This tribal scorpion is still a very popular tattoo in Borneo, even if its original meaning got lost in favour of its spiritual meaning: originally Dayaki warriors, who used to cut off their enemies´ heads, got the scorpion tattooed (actually stylized ""axes") as a protection in battle. The same design, when tattooed on the throat, should protect his bearer from undergoing that same fate, by giving strength to the skin of the throat. Luckily, heads are not in danger anymore, but the meaning of valiance and courage is still deeply connected with this design.
