If intricate tattoo designs take your fancy, Polynesian designs may be the inspiration you are looking for. Drawing on the tribal rituals, animal populations and local plants of the island, Polynesian Tattoo Designs tell stories of the past. Stories with touches of the wild, a whiff of danger and sacred mysteries of the universe, are some common themes of Polynesian tattoos. Many tattoos draw on the tribal motifs of Hawaii and come in distinctive patterns. Bold lines are a part and parcel of these gorgeous tribal tattoos.
You find people who get the tribal designs inked on different parts of their bodies. The spread is varied, with stylized curves and a strong play of black designs. Monochrome usually dominates these tattoos, though you also find some designs with subtle touches of colors like light blue. Polynesian designs use geometrical shapes like circles, semi-circles, triangles and squares to create rich and stunning effects. While many areas of the tattoo are filled in, some areas remain blank to give a dramatic look to the design. Animals that are native to the island also feature in many traditional designs. The head of an elephant can be done with intricate curves and lines. The upper back is a great place to ink this spread out animal design. While the back forms an ideal canvas for many tattoos, the arm is also ideal to display the rich motifs that mark Polynesian tattoos. You often find a slow bear, a bird, or pretty flowers tucked into complex and rich tattoos. Faces wearing traditional masks also feature in Polynesian tattoo designs. Symmetrical shapes and a hypnotic play of circles within circles, or triangles within triangles, give a powerful look to the tattoos. Born of the wild, these tattoos speak of the ancient heart of a civilization that is synced with the rhythms of nature.
