hawaiian tattoos 2011
Hawaiian culture was a popular trend in the 1950s and 1960s, but when it comes to tattoos, it was not until the mid 1980s when Hawaiian motifs returned with colorful shirts and tie-dyed shirts popularized by celebrities,singers and bands, including Weird Al Yankovik. It was during those years when Hawaiian Tattoos began to be worn. From discreet floral and tribal designs to Hawaiian words and phrases, Hawaiian Tattoo Designs usually express a message by themselves. Today it is usual to find people wearing Hawaiian tattoos saying “Aloha” (Hello), “E Kipa Mai” (Come to Me), “Mau Loa” (Forever), “Mahalo E Ke Akua No Keia La” (Thanks God for this day), and many other phrases appealing to the Hawaiian lifestyle.
