Tricia Allen has harnessed centuries of knowledge regarding Hawaiian tattoo and has created this fascinating, comprehensive reference book that can be enjoyed by both tattoo enthusiasts and cultural scholars. Tattoo Traditions of Hawaii describes the evolution of Hawaiian tattooing as an art and science tracing it from its early roots in ancient Polynesia.

Allen's work presents motif, meaning, and placement, as well as tools and techniques on the ancient art, and includes a number of previously unpublished original illustrations. The contemporary art is chronicled by personal observations and commentary from prominent members of the Hawaiian community including Keali'i Reichel, Charles Ka'upu, and Hokulani Holt-Padilla.
