Fabulous... don't see much of that here on Oahu. See more traditional Hawaiian folk art, etc.

I'm ready for a new tiki tattoo & I'm trying to decide what it should be. So I'm opening it up for suggestions. My new art will be on my left breast.
Thank you all so much in advance.

Hi Kele,

There are many Tiki tattoo threads here on TC. This seems to be the main one.

Maybe this thread might give you some cool ideas. I'm giving this thread a bump just for that (and maybe you could ask the moderator to delete your original one-off thread ??)

Here's my idea. Get "The Book of Tiki" tattooed on your breast. That would really be unique and what could be a better homage to the Tiki Revival? Yeah I know there's a lot of detail there but maybe your tattoo artist could come up with a more simple take on it...



Also that could result in a really cool "And here's Sven Kirsten signing the Book of Tiki" photo op.

So...here is my tiki tattoo. I got the hula girl (her name is Kai Kala) in Hilo in October of 2009. The artist was Kevin Bays at Rainbow Falls Tattoo.

You might think she is familiar. She is based off of a '40s Pan Am advertisement. She needed to have stuff around her and consequently turned into a half sleeve. I sketched up the rest from places my wife and I had been to around the islands.

The other main subject is the tiki from Pu'unua o honaunau south of Kailua/Kona.

I forget what his name is and can't seem to find it anywere. I liked his attitude. He seemed to be a partier and between Kai Kala and the tiki, I got what I wanted between 2010 and 2011. The artist was Phil Bartel at Rising Tide Tattoo in Boulder, CO.

Additions might move around to my back shoulder with some tiki mugs, torches and a bit more of a night scene. Maybe a tiki mug and umbrella, etc.

Michael

Thought I'd add an update since I went to Pu'uhonua o Honaunau last week. Here I am with my inspiration.



Aloha,
Michael

That's pretty kool. Is that an original of yours? Are you going to add color to it?

Hey there...been on the site a few times, but finally decided to register and join the fun...figured i'd started by bumping an older thread with some great content...

I got this Tiki about 1 year ago from Jime Litwalk when he was at Massive Tattoo in LV. Hoping to add to it in the coming weeks; so many ideas right now, just trying to sort through them and develop some composition for the sleeve...



Thanks for looking...
