Souvenir of Rarotonga, in the beachcomber tradition. What makes it even cooler is that I was able to trade carvings I made for most of the value. Hopefully I will be adding to my collection by visiting more exotic destinations in the future!

Full story and detail pics
here!

PS damn it's hard taking a photo of your right arm when you are right-handed! Self-timer for the win!

I just got a new tattoo from Manu . He is here from Tahiti in Beverly Hills for a month . 2hrs to lay it out and 5 hrs needle time . I love his Marquesan designs . What do you think ?

Paipo - I, too, got a tattoo from T on Rarotonga - just this past January, in fact. He does such beautiful work!!!!!!!, and I also love that every design is unique to the person - no chinese menu approach to his work!

You are SO right about the challenges of taking pictures with your left hand when your right is being worked on. I had to use my point & shoot - not the SLR to get a good one I managed to also not do too bad in getting a couple in progress shots:







Took about 1.5 hours - start to finish.

& a couple others just after it was complete:

Nice! I actually got my wife to take those pics I linked to of the "work in progress" - she did a pretty good job I think!
T is such a cool cat - I enjoyed hanging out with him and talking story just as much as getting my arm decorated. The life and culture of the islands is something else.
Have you got any pics of your trip posted up anywhere? I never tire of seeing images of Rarotonga....

My husband bugged out - he couldn't stand the sound of the needle, so I was on my own for the pics
You're right about hanging out with T - was great to learn about some of the culture while getting a lifelong souvenir

I know what you mean on seeing more pictures of Rarotonga - such an amazing place - I'm sure we'll go back someday - I've sent you a PM on the pictures

Hey Tiki-Ray

Manu did a wonderful job.

I get part one of my sleeve from Manu on Monday, and part two at the Queen Mary for Ink and Iron. Scott gets the other side of his calf done on Tuesday and then the joining middle band will be done when we visit his shop in Papeete.

Hope Erica and the guys at the shop (Art and Soul) treated you well.

Jen and Scott

I'm with you, Doctor, on the temporary tattoo idea. But the link ends up with, "Item Not In Stock".
Myriah's Polynesian Bazaar has a bunch of Hawaiian/Tiki temporary tats. I may get a few for my wife's birthday, in a couple months. They have the vintage topless hula girl you linked to, and even a kit to do a full-face Maori job. Imagine showing up at your tiki-skeptic parent's house with that on your face, as a joke!

Thanks all , Im pretty proud of it . And yes everyone at the shop were fantastic and you can have all the Red Bulls you want . Manu keeps you very relaxed and I love the way his work just flows . He kind of outlined the borders and then just went to town sketching freehand all over . He just cant show you at first cause its all in his head . I highly reccomend him , Ray

Shown here is the starting point for work I'm getting done on my right outer shin & calf.

The tattoo was done by Ryan of Raygun Tattoo in Dana Point. This little fellow was designed by Von Franco. We're working on the rest of the design which I'll post up as soon as it's done.
