Polynesian tattoos are a world of designs with meanings. They incorporate symbol after symbol after symbol. Polynesian tattoos are a statement of emotions, feelings, status, and personality. A Polynesian tattoo can be a subtle, personal way to express who you are or who you aspire to become. Polynesian tattoos can incorporate more obvious, but also more hidden symbols known only to its bearer.
In ancient times, in some Polynesian Islands, only the men with high ranking or status within a tribe were allowed to tattoo their entire bodies. They used sharp, crafted pieces of turtle shell or fish bone dipped into black dye and tapped the ink into their bodies. Wearing tattoos was honor. Even so, to this day Polynesian Tattoo Designs are a representation of who a person is, what they have accomplished, what’s important in their personal lives, and they should be worn with pride (like The Rock Tattoo is worn with pride!).
