Alright so for my first tattoo I have really been wanting something that keeps me connected to Hawaii since I have grown up here since I was 8. The catch is that im Haole. And now that I'm going off to college to I want to get a tattoo to show my love and respect for Hawaii and the culture. The tattoo I was really considering getting a tribal hammerhead shark. The reason for this is because I am a expert level swimmer (I hate to be arrogant) I surf almost every day, I spearfish when I can, basically I live in the ocean. With out it I wouldn't be who I am. And the shark is a symbol of strength and power which I need for the new chapter in my life. The only reason for getting a tattoo in Hawaii is because to me Hawaii has changed me and formed me into who I am today. I wouldn't be the same person I am if I didn't live in Hawaii. And I can definitely see myself moving back later on in life. I would like some feed back on if I should get it or not. I mean not everyone is going to know my story if the see the tattoo on my back they are only going to see a Haole with a tribal shark and think WTF. Thanks for your help.

I'm not looking for designs or parlors I'm just looking for feed back on if I Should or not.

There is no problem for a non-Polynesian to get a Polynesian tattoo. Much have been written about that on this forum and elsewhere. Here is some of the most enlightening thoughts on the subjet.
