Frangipani star Polynesian style tattoo design
Flowers are commonly used in Polynesian tattoo designs for both men and women, and this tribal tattoo idea includes a frangipani, also known as a plumeria. Although the hibiscus, which is the national flower of Polynesia, is the flower most commonly used in tribal tattoos, the plumeria is also popular because of its deep meaning. According to Polynesian culture, the frangipani can be worn by women to indicate their relationship status. If they are seeking a relationship, they can wear the flower over their right ear. If they are taken, they can wear it over their left ear. In addition to a frangipani, this black and white Polynesian tattoo design also includes a star and some traditional tribal patterns.
