Aloha! Hawaiian tattoo designs and body art have a long history of over thousand years. But it was not until the 1990s and began when celebrities on them, and then only tattoo designs started coming into vogue.

It was an important part of their lives to the extent that even a Hawaiian tattoo praying to God every time someone in the community gets a tattoo. And not as subject to fashion or simply to look cool, Hawaiians only get tattoos for a few reasons:

- For grieving loved one - To the memory of a lost love

- Talisman of Protection - To protect and ward off evil spirits or foe

- Personal Identification - Identify as a community or group

Therefore, most Hawaiian tattoos have some hawaiian tattoomeaning or significance behind it. Compared to their neighbors of other Polynesian islands in the chain, such as Maori and Samoan, Hawaiian tattoo designs tend to be bigger and bolder in size and color. Uncommon Hawaiian tattoo designs are:

- Arrows

- Flowers

- Dolphins

- Lizards (Hawaiians have great respect for lizards)

- Sea Turtle

Besides these works of traditional tattoo art, there is much more "fresh" Hawaiian band tattoo designs. Band Hawaiian tattoo design is very popular among the tattoo lovers today because of the "modern" traditional yet he did.
