The first profusely illustrated book of its kind limited to the art of traditional Polynesian tattooing, covering all areas connected with the exotic cultures that produced them, this is a fascinating study describing the actual process and ceremonies involved in tattooing. Containing a well-rounded and interesting text, there are over 250 illustrations depicting Polynesians with traditional tattoos from New Zealand, Hawai’i, Tahiti, Marquesas, Easter Island, Samoa, and Tonga. These illustrations encompass actual photographs taken in the 19th century as well as early exploration art, paintings, drawings, engravings, and artifacts, all relating to the art of tattooing.
