Polynesian tattoos are mostly inspired by tradition and history. The main difference between traditional and Polynesian tattoos is that Polynesian tattoos carry intricate and deliberate details in them. Polynesian tattoos tell a story and they evoke diverse abilities according to the symbol on the skin. For example, the Enata tattoo can be used to symbolize both men and god.  It is also a symbol of rank; an inverted Enata can be used to symbolize an enemy.
