Da Mix-Plate of South Seas Inspired Tattoos

Kauai is made up of many diverse and unique cultures. The sugar plantation days of old brought many cultures to this small island in the middle of the Pacific. From Japan to the Philippines from Hawaii to Aotearoa and from Samoa to Tahiti.  The local dialect “pigeon” is also a result of many different cultures sitting around a fire trying to communicate with each during the sugar plantation days. This is why you can hear Hawaiian, Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, and mainland American words in one conversation.

This is why I call this page Mix-plate. The mix of designs mirrors our diversity on Kauai.
