Polynesian-Style Tattoos From Russia by Dmitry Babakhin

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

Polynesian-style tattoos don't have to come strictly from Polynesia. These bomb tattoos come courtesy of Dmitry Babakhin from Russia.

Polynesian tattoos are more mainstream than ever. The highest-paid actor of the year, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, is covered in them. Many athletes can be seen with these decorative pieces all over their skin.

Babakhin got his first tattoo at 14 and has since become obsessed with the Polynesian culture. Since his first ink was in the Polynesian-style, he has dedicated his life's work to studying the tradition surrounding the style and the mythos.

Check out Dmitry's Instagram for some awesome island stylings.
