Tattooing to the Polynesian people is a sign of strength, bravery and dedication to family and still is a very important practice to most of the South Pacific Cultures. The origin of the tattoo goes as far back as the initial migration and colonization of the Pacific islands. Ancient Polynesian tattoo designs have never been put on sterling, copper or gold jewelry before Polynesian Tattoo Jewelry by Domina.
Welcome to Polynesian Tattoo Jewelry
Polynesian Tattoo Jewelry by Domina has taken ancient tattoo designs of the Polynesian cultures and put them on beautiful .925 sterling silver jewelry which can be worn by both men and women. Although tattoos are the rage, not everyone wants to go through the pain or permanence of the tattoo process. The word tattoo originated from the word "tatu" which means to strike. The ancient method of a sharpened boar's tooth, dipped in ink and then tapped by a striking stick on stretched skin, is still practiced in many Polynesian cultures. The current tattoo designs of Polynesian Tattoo Jewelry by Domina are of the islands of Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti, Samoan, Easter Island the Maori of New Zealand

The memory of my Great Aunt's "malu" tattoo and my Great Uncle's "pe'a" tattoo, have given me the way to share this Samoan heritage with my children and grandchildren. Polynesian Tribal Jewelry by Domina has developed designs from Tahiti, Samoa, Tonga, Hawaii, New Zealand "Maori" and Easter Island,
