Default Borneo Tattoo

Hi all,
am trying to track down information on tribal tattoos from Borneo, primarily re-occurring motifs and their meanings (i.e. like the Borneo Eggplant tattoos Bunga Terung). I had a heap of notes on my old laptop from a visit to Sarawak a couple of years ago but a cryptolocker virus put paid to that. Is there a reference book or website that could be recommended. I've checked ethnographicartbooks.com and there a few possible leads to follow but just wanted to check in case there is a gold standard that I should be searching for?
thanks in advance

Hello Imas,

a few tattoos are shown in the booklet "Borneo, Leben im Regenwald", Staatliches Museum für Völkerkunde München, Verlag Bernhard Kusche, Oettingen i. Bayern. On page 87 are shown some drawings from Dayak tattoos.

Best regards,
Detlef
