A good article on Hawaiian tattoo that ran in a SF newspaper some time ago is still archived online, see http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2001/12/30/LV173279.DTL
There is a historical article on Samoan tattoo at http://tattoobody.org/index.php?page=samoa-tattoo-history

The schedule is pretty full, as always, but I can do consultations, and I always keep a wait list in case of cancellations. If you are seriously interested, please call me at 808-734-8677 BEFORE Sept 5th, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, although I far prefer the phone for initial inquiries as I talk far faster than I type, and I rarely e-mail while on the mainland. Details on locations & dates are on the web at http://www.tattootraditions.alohaworld.com/schedule.htm
