Polynesian Tattoo Symbols

Available in:. Polynesian tattooing is a form of art that goes beyond merely being aesthetically pleasant: Polynesian tattoos can tell stories, protect, inspire. This all happens through the choice of the elements composing a design, which are important not only on account of their look, but of their meaning as well. Every passage is explained in a clear and straightforward way, making these books fit for both the tattoo artist and the novice. While we suggest Volume 1 as a comprehensive introduction to the world of Polynesian tattoos, Volume 2 is an unprecedented resource for those who wish to take one step further and delve deeper into the styles, elements, and meanings of this art.

Symbols are listed with their variants, and real tattoos are deconstructed and explained down to their foundational elements. I live in Hawaii, purchased many Polynesian design books in the past but, this one is the best so far. Love it! Since I already have a Polynesian style tattoo I wanted to keep the same tradition but include elements that are important to me, not just how it looks. From this book I was able to learn what certain symbols mean and be able to use them in my design for the tattoo I will get with my daughter.

The origins of Polynesian society

There is still debate over the definitive origins of Polynesian culture and that transfers also, to the notion of tattooing. All of these tribes are genetically linked to the indigenous peoples from parts of Southeast Asia. The people who inhabit the islands of Polynesia are termed Polynesians and they share many similar traits including language, culture and beliefs. However, Polynesian languages may actually vary slightly from each other, and in some cases they actually differ quite significantly. There are some words, which are basically the same throughout all Polynesian languages, reflecting the deepest core of all Polynesian cultures. Moana ocean and mana spiritual force and energy are two terms that transcend all Polynesian cultures.

Each design is made up of several smaller elements, comparable to building blocks, which are selected by the tattoo master based on their meaning and then assembled together in a coded order to create the final piece. Information about Polynesian tattoo symbols and their meanings will be published monthly in our wiki section , but you can also find it right away in our Handbooks, which introduce and explain this amazing tradition:.
