Evocative and symbolic designs based on the ancient tradition of Polynesian tattoo art.
The beauty of Polynesian art is perhaps most evident in the tradition of Polynesian tattooing, which has existed for more than two thousand years and is infused with rich symbolism and spiritual meaning. Roberto Gemori designs tattoos reflecting this tradition, drawing from each person’s own history of personal struggles, adversities, and triumphs. In his approach to tattoo art, Gemori takes the meaningful moments of a person’s life story and weaves them into a creative design, such that the tattoo itself becomes a form of personal empowerment, representing qualities a person is working to cultivate in their life and challenges they have overcome.
The author presents here modern tattoo designs inspired by Polynesian art to color and contemplate for inspiration and transformation. In addition to a short introduction on Polynesian art and symbolism, the book features 42 designs for coloring, each accompanied by a description of the image’s unique meaning.
