The tattoos of Samoan were called as Tataus. They represent pride and respect for the culture, heritage, customs and traditions of Samoan folk. The person who tattooed one of Samoan tattoos brings pride for his family as the process of tattooing is very painful and the one who refused to tattoo is called coward. The simple geometric shapes of rectangles, squares and dots are generally contained in Samoan tattoos. Crosses, zigzag lines and curve shapes could also be contained in these tattoos. With the help of ink, the men’s tattoos are portrayed and are done in larger section. On hands, legs and thighs the women’s tattoos are done and the design is smaller and delicate.
