Polynesian / Maori / Tribal Tattoo Gallery
by Patong Tattoo Phuket
Tribal tattoos are one of the oldest forms of decorative tattooing. The most popular style of tribal tattoos emerged from the group of Polynesian Islands. Maori, Samoan, Tonga, Fiji, and Hawaiian each tribal had its own cultural style of tattooing, and plenty of designs are tribe specific with inherent meaning.
Polynesian tribe’s tattoo style symbolized traditions, legends, and religious beliefs using flowers, faces, figures, animals, and abstract shapes. Patong Tattoo Phuket creates this style of tattoo that combines fine lines, heavy blackwork, and soft shading to create an impressive work of art that is powerful and cohesive with the shapes of the body.
