This polynesian half sleeve tattoo was done by Jay Cee Rademeyer of Zen Ink Professional Tattoo Studio in Johannesburg South Africa.
There is still debate over the definitive origins of Polynesian culture and that transfers also, to the notion of tattooing.
One thing that is certain is that the term Polynesian or Polynesia incorporates many tribes including Marquesans, Samoans, Niueans, Tongans, Cook Islanders, Hawaiians, Tahitians and Maori. All of these tribes are genetically linked to the indigenous peoples from parts of Southeast Asia.
Southeast Asia and in turn, Polynesia are sub-regions of Oceania, comprising of a large grouping of over 1000 islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean, within a triangle that encompasses New Zealand, Hawaii and Easter Island as it’s corners.
The people who inhabit the islands of Polynesia are termed Polynesians and they share many similar traits including language, culture and beliefs.
This client is currently working on a full Polynesian body suite so keep checking back in with us to see how we progress. This half sleeve that Jay Cee is working on was done in a single session and his client sits like an absolute rock . we look forward to having her back at our studio.
Jay Cee completed this Polynesian half sleeve using a Professional coil Tattoo Machine, Dynamic Tattoo Ink, Green Soap and Hustle Butter Deluxe.
