The legends about Kokopelli describe him as the god of fertility as well as being a trickster and mischievous. There is a theory that the image of Kokopelli comes from Aztecs where Kokopelli was a trader.

It is believed that Kokopelli played his flute and his music could bring spring breeze and warmth. He used to travel from village to village melting snow and bringing spring. The villagers would sing and dance with Kokopelli and the next day every maiden would be carrying a child.

Traditional Kokopelli tattoo was often combined with other details like sun and mountains, ram, tribal patterns, birds and music notes. You can also create a whole composition putting together several glyphs. You have several ways to get tribal Kokopelli tattoo.
