What is a Samoan tattoo called? – Tattoo Picture

How old am I, so-and-so?

You are a Samoan Tattoo Artist!

Your work is so beautiful, and so wonderful.

I’ve always wanted to be able to create beautiful Samoan tattoos.

Why would I want to?

I like the people who come to me when I need something special.

I am very excited and honored to be your tattoo artist!

Where are you based?

I have work from my home in Wellington, New Zealand.

Why has my work inspired you to do other work?

I am obsessed with Samoan tattoos and their history.

The Samoan language has been part of my life since I was a little kid.

I’ve grown a lot in the 20 years since I first started. I think you can learn more about Samoan culture through this work than you can in a lifetime.

So why now?

This is my second exhibition and it’s my first as an artist-in-residence.

I’ve had quite a few inquiries so I wanted to open my doors to people, be part of a community. There were very few Samoan tattoo artists in New Zealand, which is very sad news to me.

This is my second exhibition and it’s my first as an artist-in-residence.

What advice would you have for young people considering creating their own artistic Samoans?

Samoans do need to know the history – what is the language, who invented it, what are the words, what’s the culture.

All that can be found online.

What is your favorite Samoan word or phrase?

When I’m doing tattoos, I like to think of them as paintings. There’s this idea in Samoan culture of creating a picture through your art.

If you look, you’ll see that we’re making very powerful images through our tattoo work.

It is one of the things Samoans are great at.

What is your favorite Samoan dance?

I love the movement of the kava-tree in Samoan culture and how it symbolises life and rebirth.

In New Zealand, we are quite interested in the natural world – in
