Tatau is a beautifully designed and richly illustrated retelling of the unique and powerful history of Samoan tattooing, from 3,000 years ago to modern practices. The Samoan Islands are virtually unique in that tattooing has been continuously practiced with indigenous techniques: the full male tattoo, the pe'a has evolved in subtle ways in its design since the nineteenth century, but remains as elaborate, meaningful, and powerful as it ever was. This cultural history is the first publication to examine Samoan tatau from its earliest beginnings. Through a chronology rich with people, encounters, and events it describes how Samoan tattooing has been shaped by local and external forces of change over many centuries. It argues that Samoan tatau has a long history of relevance both within and beyond Samoa, and a more complicated history than is currently presented in the literature. It is richly illustrated with historical images of nineteenth and twentieth century Samoan tattooing, contemporary tattooing, diagrams of tattoo designs and motifs, and with supplementary photographs such as posters, ephemera, film stills and artefacts.

The Sāmoan Islands are virtually unique in that tattooing has been continuously practised with indigenous techniques: the design of the full male tattoo, the pe'a, has evolved in subtle ways since the nineteenth century, but remains as elaborate, meaningful and powerful as it ever was. This richly illustrated cultural history is the first publication to examine 3000 years of Sāmoan tatau. Through a chronology vivid with people, encounters and events, it describes how Sāmoan tattooing has been shaped by local and external forces over many centuries. It argues that Sāmoan tatau has a long history of relevance both within and beyond Sāmoa, and a more complicated history than is currently presented in the literature.

Mark Adams' renowned images document a great Polynesian art tradition. Samoan tattooing has flourished among Samoan migrants in New Zealand, stimulated major New Zealand artists, and inspired tattoo artists and communities worldwide. Through Adams' photography, Tatau tells the story of Sulu'ape Paulo II, the pre-eminent figure of modern Samoan tattooing. Paulo was a brilliantly innovative and often controversial man, who saw tatau as an art of international importance, and who was killed tragically in 1999. Tatau documents his practice, and that of other tufuga ta tatau (tattoo artists), in the contexts of Polynesian tattooing, Samoan migrant communities and New Zealand art. Tatau presents 100 full-colour plates of Adams' powerful and moving images. Documentary by nature, they also ask tough questions of this scene and its history. Accompanying the photographs are two essays and two interviews: Sean Mallon writes on the tufuga, Peter Brunt writes on the photographer, and in interviews with Sean Mallon and Nicholas Thomas, Sulu'ape Paulo II and Mark Adams respectively articulate their own understandings of their practices.

The aim of this thesis is to position Samoan tatau as a travelling practice through an investigation of tatau practice both in relation to its origins, significance and practice in Samoa as well as within the Samoan diaspora, with specific reference to the Samoan communities of New Zealand. It is demonstrated that tatau as inherently intertwined with travel, movement and change, is not a new conception. Rather, it is one that stems back to the earliest known origins of tatau. The notions of tatau coming from beyond Samoa, the movement of people, and the interconnectedness of Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, are united in historical records the extensive and complex oral histories surrounding the origins of tatau. As the art form has moved through the years, it has progressed along this trajectory of travel and change spread across the globe by widely dispersed Samoan communities. This thesis examines contemporary Samoan tatau as practiced and worn in the Samoan diaspora. As Samoan communities adapt and change in relation to new cultural contexts lived in, so too does tatau. However, new innovations in tatau cannot be talked about in isolation from customary forms; they are part of a cultural continuum embedded in a history of travel and change. For this reason the thesis examines both tatau completed with the ‘au (customary hand tool) and the masigi (tattoo machine). Integral to this thesis is the investigation of Samoan tatau through the lens of those who practice it and those who wear it. Oral testimony is a significant component of the research given the long standing oral histories associated with this measina (treasured art form). Personal narratives garnered from the oral testimony of reputable tufuga tatatau, tatau artists, tatau recipients and gallery based artists allow for a comparative study of aspects of tatau as they relate to concepts of travel and change. With the practice of Samoan tatau set only to increase this thesis hopes to make a timely contribution to research and discussion on Pacific art forms.

The multiple media works of Semisi Fetokai Potauaine in his exhibition Tatau Fenapasi 'oe Fepaki / Tatau: Symmetry, Harmony and Beauty can be critically examined at the interface of the ta-va (time0space) theory and Tongan ethnography. As a multi-media artist, Semisi inquires into a number of material artforms, which range from architecture and sculpture through painting and tattooing to plaiting and graphic designing. The essays and photos in this book examine his first solo exhibition held at the Museum of Archaology and Anthropology at Cambridge University.

In a time of dynamism and contradiction in Pacific cultural production, a time of 'turning things over' and 'writing from the inside out, ' this far-reaching volume provides a comprehensive set of essays and interviews on the emergent literatures of the New Pacific. With its dynamic combination of important position papers, polemics, and decolonizing critiques by noted authors and of analysis by new and established post-colonial scholars, this volume exposes 'the maze and mix of literatures and cultural identities breaking down and building up across the Pacific Ocean.' This pioneering work will be the definitive resource for anyone researching or teaching Pacific literature and will be invaluable for bringing Pacific culture to readers outside the region
