A Polynesian tattoo is a type of tattoo that draws its symbolism and meaning from the indigenous cultures of the Polynesian Islands. Traditionally, they were meant to display different aspects of one’s devotion to their culture and society, symbolizing power and strength, courage, independence, and accomplishment. They can also represent a variety of roles within a family, tribe, or organization. Beyond their traditional use as symbols of dedication, these tattoos are also often seen as an expression of freedom, identity, and personal connection to the larger community. In modern times, Polynesian tattoos have become popular as body art, often reflecting elements of tribal mythology and lore.
