The Tatau

 In year 7/8 extension we have been investigating the art of tatau. Tatau is a Samoan tattoo which men get. The tatau starts at the waist and stops at the knees most of the time. It is supposed to be a symbol of strength and pride.

Last week we were privileged to have Mr Tele'a come in to our class and show us his tattoo. He came in and answered our questions that we had about the tatau. He was very helpful giving us a lot of information.

We now have to create our own two tattoos one is to represent our culture and one to represent ourselves. I have currently only completed one and i'm working on my culture one. keep posted to see my tattoo design
