Introduction of Polynesian Tattoo History

As this study is all about Polynesian Tattoo History, we’ll introduce as precisely as we can. So where to begin? Before leading you into the detailed explanation of Polynesian Tattoo History, let us give you a glance of Polynesian culture first.

 

The Origins of Polynesian Culture and its Geographical Covered Area

There’re still debates about the origins of Polynesian culture (debate details can be found by searching “Polynesian Culture” in wikipedia), but one thing we can ensure is that Polynesia is not a single tribe but a complex one. Polynesians which includes Marquesans, Samoans, Niueans, Tongans, Cook Islanders, Hawaiians, Tahitians, and Māori, are genetically linked to indigenous peoples of parts of Southeast Asia. It’s a sub-region of Oceania, comprising of a large grouping of over 1 ,000 islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean, within a triangle that has New Zealand, Hawaii and Easter Island as its corners. The two pictures below clearly show this triangle:
