Don't you dare touch it baby, I love that tattoo! Please I beg you not to add flames, I'm so tired of flames. Well that is of course if it's not with an eagle and a snake.
Thanks for posting the tat, I couldn't quite remember it but knew it was cool.
Kiliki do you still have the same email?
Drop me a line.

Cool tat! I would add some tiki torches coming out abit from the sides and have the flames red.



I agree! I'd like to see some color too. But torches would add just the right touch.
If I had bigger arms, I do it myself...but I'm a wuss!!

By the way, what the hell ever happened to Hoffa in Columbus?!

Basemnent Kahuna thanks for the compliments but im not an expert as a tattoo artist/ collector ,Im still at, and forever will be at the aritist/ student level (you never ever stop learning) but I'll try and help out here. Kiliki, you can always do the flames in black and grey.(like that ev erybody om TC is happy) but yeah I think adding flames would go really nice with da tiki fer sure.as for the original topic just remember with tattoos the smaller its gonna be, the less little lines you want in it.cause in the future it will only look very messy and undistinguishable. wow! (long werd).remember some artists will scratch anything on you for the sake of makin' $$.and always make sure you are getting quality work from a clean shop. ask to see their autoclaves and ask about their strilization process.if an artist makes you feel uncomfortable because you dont have tattoos all over, or for some other dumbshit reason. leave!! there are plenty of us nice artists who will sit down and shoot ideas back and forth w/ you till something that works comes up. oh and really an eagle and a snake has nothing to do with "latin pride" it's an ageless classic traditional tattoo design that has and will be around forever .besides american traditional tattoos are da shit, and can hold up for a couple a months after yer dead. good luck...kreepy tiki jaksin

In Japan they have art galleries and museums to display irezumi. They would make a down payment on the skin and collect it when the person died.

That is a sweet ass tiki. If it was mine, I'd hilite with bright yellow and have it standing in a giant fire ball using red, orange, and yellow. Fire is cool. You could even sneak in some demon faces looking out of the flames for extra impact.

It's been suggested to me to get a tatt on my other forearm as a mate. Don't know if I'll do that but another is certainly on the way!! Probably a hula girl on my upper arm.

It's all about ballance. If you get one on one arm, you got to get another on the other arm. If you get one on one leg, you got to get another on the other leg. Got to keep even!

Just my 2 tattos worth. (actually 12. Well hidden and planned that way for my future "real job". This was my thought back in the early 80's. If I knew I'd be a starving artist for my "real job", placement would have been different )

For my 2 cents worth....Keep the tattoo black, it suits the Tiki style. Definately agree on the balance 'thing'. I've one arm with a tat, now I NEED to get the other arm done to even it up. Tiki-Kiliki, your hawaiian woman sounds cool or you could try a Moai?

Actually, in much of traditional Polynesian tattooing, an asymmetrical pattern was used. This was particularly true with Hawaiian tattoos. Often, only one side of the upper body was tattooed and the opposite side of the lower body was tattooed.

But damn if they aren't addicting once you get one! Mine are all traditional black ink.

Thought I'd share my Moai tattoo with you.




Now I want to get the top of my other arm tattooed with tikis in a similar style (bold blacklines and shading). Although I am not sure whether to have one large tiki, or have 4 or 5 tikis (similiar to my Moai design). I have searched and found a few pictures that I can show to my tattooist for him to draw up but nothing fantastic yet.
If anyone of you artists care to submit some sketches to me that I can draw inspiration from, it would be really appreciated.

Mahalo and rockin regards

I hate to say it, because I usually prefer black tats, but yours screams for some color. Keep it restrained of course, but some brown or yellow ochre hi-lights would make it pop.



Tiki-Kiliki, Please disregard this, as if you already haven't. The photo doesn't do it justice. It looks awesome in real life.

Kon, It's obvious you used the same artist. The new one looks way cool.
