About Us

First of all you may ask, “Why do you spell ‘Tattoo’ wrong?” Let’s clear that up.  The etymology of the word “tattoo” has its roots in the Polynesian language. The word “tatau” is a conjunction of the words “Tata”, meaning to tap repeatedly by hand, and the word “Au”, which means color. The Tahitians adopted this word to form “Tatu”. We adopted the Tahitian version of the word. But where did the word, “Tattoo”, come from?…you may ask. Traditionally, tattoos where given with a row of needles made of bone on a wooden stick and struck with another wooden dow in a precise tapping motion, hence “Tata”. Sailors traveling through the Polynesian islands would ask for “tata” “au”, evolving the word to English as “tattoo”.
