Glancing at the past history and modern design of Polynesian Tattoos

The bold, intricate patterns of Polynesian tattoos catch the eye in ways few other tattoos can. They have one of the richest histories of any kind of tattoo -- this traditional styling can trace its roots back over 2000 years, and its influence on the history of Western tattoos is immeasurable.

Hi, i'm an illustrator from Ferrara, Italy, who likes to travel as much as possible around the world. I really love polynesian, maori, japanese and all the other traditional/tribal styles who got a deep meaning behind the symbols used into them. I'm also aspiring to became a professional tatoo designer one day or another.
