Polynesian tattoos are supposed to present information about the person that has the tattoo. A tattoo might reveal information about a person’s history, or about the position that they held in a tribe. If you looked at the tattoos that the people of the past wore on their bodies, you could learn a great deal about the lives that they lived. Topics include Tahiti, Easter Island, New Zealand, the Cook Islands, and more.
