Hawaiian tattoos basically, resemble the deep culture of Hawaiian Islands and heritage through different symbols and elements associated to the beautiful culture of Hawaii. Tattooing for people at those times was a way to express their bravery because of the painful method by which it was done.
Shark teeth usually represents shelter or coverage, guidance, power, ferocity, adaptability, etc. For this, the skin of the person had to be cut open and tattoo ink made up of ash and soot was poured in the cut.
Then, the ash and soot were allowed to get dry so that the ink pigment may turn black.This traditional Hawaiian style tattoo is a great example of what this style of tattooing is all about.

The solid black lines and the flow of the whole thing give you the knowledge that this tattoo was most likely very painful but well worth it.But with the influence of Western culture, Hawaiian tattoos began to gain colour and each design started getting an exotic touch. But traditionally, the designs used to revolve around geometric patterns and symmetric designs, that too in black ink.The style followed by Hawaiians and Maori culture was the same. Although, men and women both used to get those painful tattoos inked on their skin but men usually outnumbered the women. But each tattoo held a deep meaning within itself and depicted a great story for its emergence.
Although full body tattooing was not meant for women, but still they had their fair share of them. Even the parts of this tattoo that are more simple and less detailed like the pieces of his right side are eye catching. The negative space on this chest piece is used very well andAs Hawaiian tattoos possess deep meaning in themselves, they are worn by many men and women to represent the Hawaiian tradition and heritage. These tattoos can depict the whole history of the great Hawaiian culture and portray a specific island or the state of Hawaii.
They are as a symbol of respect for their ancient cultural heritage.SYMBOLS AND MEANINGSHawaiian tattoo designs symbolize religious devotion, rites , bravery, status, ranks and heritage. It is a conception that the green gecko brings illness and bad fortune to whomever it comes in contact with.3.
What I love about this tattoo is that not only is it a gecko, but its also a beautiful tribal design at the same time. A very clever idea to add to this tattoo is that every limb of the gecko is a different style. The dorsal fin was done really well and it wasn’t lost in the midst of the rest of the shark. This shows what looks like an older man guessing from the body dressing up in traditional Hawaiian attire and taking on a whole other aura. The oversized mask is very well illustrated but also gives this tattoo a sense of humor by the size of it.
The symmetrical bottom legs and top legs give this turtle consistency but also individuality at the same time.
The way that the color is popping out of the flower tattoo causes you to instantly be drawn to it.
The perfectly placed yellows and shading create the feeling that this flower real enough to touch and pluck its peddles. The slight reds in the middle of the flower and the way that they oranges and yellows dance within the flower bring this tattoo to life. This classic traditional American style tattoo of a Hawaiian woman adds culture, flare, and style all on one piece.
This rib piece would have been painful but we can clearly see that the outcome was well worth the pain.
The tattoo artist could have taken the easy way out, but he or she decided to make this tattoo look like its popping off the skin. The green really stands out in the little tongue sticking out adds character to this little guy.
You can see the smile on this lizards face and the hint of light blue within the tail is a good touch. I love the way that the yellow is mixed in with the green within the body of the lizard and how this tattoo almost looks like a child through it. The way that the antennas of this lobster are underneath and backwards, you can assume that this guy is in movement.
I like how an average fish hook was made to look like it was ready to kill or catch the most deadly animals in the sea. The consistent shapes within the hook are breath taking and the shading would impress even the biggest tattoo critic. The claws or blades on the outside of this hook would strike fear and cause damage to anything that it caught.
I like how the rays are smaller at the top of the back and how they get longer as they go down the back. I have seen a multitude of turtle tattoos and wide range of Hawaiian tribal tattoos, but this combination of both trumps all of them. The way that the tribal part of this tattoo and the turtle mesh so smoothly together is breath taking.
