I knew that withoutthe proper context, they wouldstereotypeme in the western sense andpresume me either a criminal or at least uneducated or unprofessional. Aperception of tattooing common on that side of the world. But the tattooortatau(in Samoan) which they may have found offensive in their worldview,was treasured in mine, the Samoan culture. Instead of signifying low socialstanding, the tattoo in Polynesia is a mark of respect, hierarchy and culturalintegrity. Unlike the European tattoos that they know, my hand was inked byatufuga ta tatau(master tattooist), apreordainedartist and chief borne of thelineage of tattooist in the Samoan hierarchy of chiefs.3It wasn’t a buzzing electric needle that broke my skin but rather a serrated bonecomb made of a boar’s tusk and hand tapped by thetufugausing burntcandlenut soot as ink. I was eight years old. My interviewers might all havefainted had they known this. The pantsuit I chose that morning alsoconvenientlycovered the markings on my thighs, the female Samoan tattoo,themalu, the same markings carried by generations of Samoan women, a rite ofpassage, a sign of chiefly lineage and a “dress” of pride. Mymaluwas not simplya “tattoo”, it is a link to my ancestors, a duty to my culture and atributeto mymother. Yet, when I set foot on a plane to leave Samoa, or enter the hallowedhalls of the United Nations for meetings, I hide all my tattoos, because in thosespaces, they won’t understand.
