These images were done for The Hawaiian Tattoo by Ski Kwiatkowski, the first book ever written specifically about Hawaiian tattoos. Most of the illustrations in the book were actually taken from old engravings and lithographs made at the time of early European contact. Some of the tattoos that Ski wanted to write about were too unclear in these early images, so he asked me to ramp them up a bit. My thanks to Ski for asking me to be a part of this effort.
