“Hawaii, Bombay are two paradises that sometimes I ride in my flat.” How little currada can be sometimes the lyrics of a song, however catchy it may be! Well, today we are going to talk to you about what, for many, it is an earthly paradise, a world of color, a place to go on vacation and never come back from. A place that can mark you forever and that is why you, in turn, decide to mark it on your skin. We are talking about Hawaii.
It is a state of the United States of America, the last to annex the country and is located in the Pacific Ocean, in Polynesia. It is located in an area rich in diversity so it has a unique beauty and it is highly chosen by tourists from all over the world to spend their vacations. It has it all: the beauty of its landscapes, the relaxing of its beaches and an attractive wild nature that calls you to ride on its waves or to collect some of its volcanic stones. Believe it or not, this is not a post about destinations where you can spend your long-awaited vacation days, it is about tattoos. But we’ll have to put you in the background, right?
A sunset on the coast is a sight that everyone should see at least once in their life. A sunset in which blue, red, pink, yellow and orange are mixed, with a perfectly round sun that, for a moment, we seem to see it move, on the way to its resting behind the sea horizon. It is beautiful to imagine it, but it is more beautiful to observe it. Imagine if we add to the image a frame of white sand, palm trees or volcanoes covered by lush green vegetation. Logically, it is a challenge for the tattoo artist that a composition of this type comes out well, but what should not be taken as a challenge? It can be difficult, but a good result will be worth it for sure.
Considering the rich biodiversity of the paradise that is Hawaii (and, in general, the islands of the Pacific), a lot of Hawaiian tattoos are related to nature, for example, with flowers. We have already confessed on occasion that full-color flowers are our weakness, especially if they are accompanied by a green vine, as if it were its stem and leaves. In Hawaii you can find many species of flowers and they are given so much importance that it is common for Hawaiian attire to be related to the flower crown (lei) and the colorful necklace, with which its people welcome you accompanied by an affectionate “Aloha!”
One of the best known, as far as flowers are concerned, is the plumeria or plumaria with which the lei is made on many occasions, which has also created a trend in, for example, patterns on swimwear fabrics. And that is not an indigenous flower, but from Central America, but in Hawaii it is cultivated abundantly. Another example is the orchid, which can be found in a multitude of colors and shapes.
Hawaii plants and animals can also be represented iconically, with tribal motifs, also closely related to the ethnic groups and cultures of the Pacific. Among the tribes themselves, a multitude of symbols can be found, although their origin and symbolism can be confusing.
Anyway, if you can’t always enjoy a paradise like Hawaii, you can get a tattoo to always carry it with you.
