The Hawaiian word kapu is usually translated as "forbidden". In ancient Hawaii, kapu refers to the ancient system of laws and regulations. An offense that was kapu was often a corporal offense, but also often denoted a threat to spiritual power, or theft of mana. Kapus were strictly enforced. Breaking one, even unintentionally, often meant immediate death. Today you find "KAPU" signs at nearly all sacred Hawaiian grounds and ancient heiaus that mean KEEP OUT thus protecting the structures and culture. We at the Kapu Tattoo Company felt this was a very srong and important word and are proud to protect and be a part of Hawaiiana tattoo culture.
