Polynesian tattoo artist
Makemo, Tuamotu Island
My name is Hinanui Tetauupu but everyone calls me Hina. I was born and raised in Makemo and Fa'aa, French Polynesia. I’m specialized in Polynesian tattoo and I delved into it's different codes and meanings about 15 years before starting to learn tattooing. My ancestors left us a precious heritage. I want to honor them by sharing and perpetuating to our cultural traditonal, resolutely unexpected and modern language, the Polynesian Tattoo. I started tattooing in Paris about 20 years ago. My shop is now located in Alkmaar, North-Holland and tattoo in Paris (13th) about 3 times per year at Watt Tattoo Family.
