Explore the Mystique of Bora Bora Holidays
Aside from beautiful beaches, weddings and sunshine, Bora Bora holidays offer tourists tradition, intrigue and an air of mystique that stems from its rich history and interesting people. The island has a whole oceans’ worth of stories about the adventures of gods, warriors and legends that once roamed Bora Bora and the surrounding islands. The sights and sounds of Bora Bora holidays are often unique to the South Pacific, and there is nothing more unique than some of the folklore that originated here, and in particular, the stories that surround ‘tattoos’. A Polynesian tradition, they have made their way around the world, gracing the bodies of many, with their humble roots grounded firmly in Polynesian culture. The word originated in the area and legend has it that Tohu, the god of tattoo, describes painting all the oceans’ fish in wonderful and beautiful patterns and colours.
In Polynesian culture, tattoos are considered beautiful and with such heavenly surroundings to act as inspiration, you can see why they made their way over to the rest of the world and why they remain such a popular part of the island’s culture today. The artistic nature of tattoos is also seen in Polynesian crafts which have been passed on by generations.
