Tattooing has long been an essential part of the history of human society. The most ancient of the tattoo cultures is the Polynesian. Each of these tattoo designs gave the opportunity to identify the wearer in depth. However, we should note, that it was also accompanied by pain and health risks.
The inhabitants of several islands were among the Polynesians, from which we would like to single out the Marquesas Islands. Only the chief and his family members had the right to get tattoos here.
Nowadays, Polynesian culture is one of the most widespread in the world. Public interest in this ink is due not only to the fascination of the designs, but also to the ancient history of this culture.
Polynesian tattoos are created by the mixture of many traditional symbols, being the most luxurious decoration for both the female and male bodies.
