Samoan Taulima Tatau V3

Gretchen's lesson

9 and 10 year olds.




The response from the initial question I asked the class,"How do you feel about tattoos?" surprised me. About 80% disapproved of tattoos in general. They found it difficult to explain where their opinions came from.

I then showed them a photo of my 32 year old, tattoo covered son. That caused a little bit of confusion. They probably saw me...my son as role models.

I didn't tell them where my allegiance lay.


They followed the design process in creating their own Samoan Taulima tatau.






These are the taulima designs prior to being copied onto acetate, which they wrapped around their arms.
