Hun­dreds of years ago,

POLY­NE­SIANS were tat­tooed with “nee­dles” made from sharp­ened bones or shells, which were tied to a stick and dipped in INK

MADE FROM KUKUI NUT. The point was then struck by a mal­let and pounded into the skin. In fact, the “TAT, TAT, TAT” sound made by the mal­let strik­ing the stick is where the word “tat­too” comes from.

For those un­sure about go­ing un­der the needle, there is way to get a TEM­PO­RARY TAT­TOO to mark your trip: The pop­u­lar in­tri­cate body art called HENNA. This ver­sion is kid-friendly, lasts up to three weeks and can be cho­sen from a stock of se­lec­tions or de­signed by you.

As for those with a de­sire for the most per­ma­nent of sou­venirs, tat­too par­lors are scat­tered through­out Maui. You choose from de­signs that run the gamut, from tra­di­tional sailor or Ja­panese im­ages to Hawai­ian-style or even por­trait tat­toos. Ask is­land res­i­dents or your concierge for the best places to “get inked” near you.

92. TRY AN OUT-OFTHE-BOX AC­TIV­ITY

For a heart-pound­ing rush of adrenaline, con­sider one of these three ac­tiv­i­ties. First up, there’s MAUI ES­CAPE ROOMS (maui­esca­p­e­r­ooms.com) in La­haina. Look for hid­den clues, think out­side the box and solve puzzles against the race of the clock to solve the clues that can free you from your des­ig­nated es­cape room. Work in teams of two to 10 peo­ple in themed es­cape rooms like Bank Heist or Prison Break and let your wit and team­work take over. Maui Es­cape Rooms is an ex­cit­ing en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence for peo­ple of all ages and skill sets. For an­other breath­tak­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, look no fur­ther than

KAHOMA RANCH ATV TOURS in La­ha­iana. Guests can rent their own all ter­rain ve­hi­cle (ATV) for a full-day of ad­ven­ture. The tour in­cludes off-road­ing on 600 acres of pri­vate cat­tle ranch land; wind­ing dirt roads, stun­ning views, and chance en­coun­ters with wildlife such as horses or pea­cocks. Lastly, con­sider MAUI

GOLF & SPORTS PARK in Wailuku for an ar­ray of family-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties where kids can do flips on their X-Treme Tram­po­line. MAUI ES­CAPE ROOMS (808) 215-9215

93. GO TO A FARM­ERS’ MAR­KET
