Tattoo Art Institute serving Leg polynesian Tattoo design

All symbols in Polynesian tattoos are literally based on the four elements i.e Water, Earth, Wind, and Fire.


While some persons use their tattoos to show their personal attachment to their tribes, other use the body art as a form of spiritual protection. You’ll see visual representations of birds, daggers, animals, human, and such that can symbolize different things.The process of tattooing is considered spiritual, that’s why each symbol calls for a ritual ceremony. If you’re a warrior, your tattoo will be more elaborate, perhaps including the symbolism of the four elements of water, earth, wind, and fire to guide you on your battle.

On the other hand, a non-warrior Polynesian may only have tattoo that’s relevant to his society’s rank or role. A farmer can be seen in a tattoos related to earth symbolism, while a fisherman can be seen in tattoos inspired from the water element.
