Tatau: Marks of Polynesia

Tatau: Marks of Polynesia is a traveling exhibition from the Japanese
American National Museum and toured internationally by Flying Fish.

Tatau showcases the striking work of Samoan tattoo masters as well as younger apprentices and practitioners working within and influenced by the tradition today. The exhibition presents the 2,000-year-old origins and current practices of tatau tradition in the land of its inception, with particular emphasis on the influential Sulu'ape family and their disciples.

The exhibition explores the beauty of tatau as well as its key role in the preservation and propagation of Samoan culture. The spread of the art form outside of Samoa and some of its more contemporary application will be demonstrated with photographs taken in New Zealand, Hawaii, California and Nevada.
