Dayak is one of the native communities in Borneo, Kalimantan Island. They still live there with so many maritime and nautical cultures around. Then, Dayak itself has a meaning related to most of the rivers on this island. On the other hand, the name of Dayak comes from the word “Power” which means upstream. The early life of the Dayak was nomadic which meant they moved from one place to the others. They settled in one area which was usually at the coast of the river and eventually they changed their name of ethnic by adding the name of the river. The most Dayak Tribes are Dayak Kenyah who use accessories as their body jewelry. Dayak Tribes generally have beads made of natural stones. Another unique characteristic of the Dayak tribe is the tattoo, where tattoos for them have a very deep meaning. Tattoos for the Dayak are part of tradition, religion, social status of a person in the community and can also be tribal appreciation for one’s abilities. Therefore, tattoos can not be made haphazardly.
Both tattoos on men or women are traditionally made using long orange fruit spines. They can do tattoos using one spine or use several needles at once. Meanwhile, the material for tattooing uses soot from a black pot. There are some of the Dayak customs that are still preserved.
