  • Abstract
    • "Through Mark Adams's renowned photography Tatau tells the story of this great art form, tracing its influence and offering an intimate portrait of Sulu'ape Paulo II, the pre-eminent figure of modern Samoan tattooing.
    • Paulo was a brilliantly innovative and often controversial man who worked to make the art of Samoan tattooing internationally recognised. Tatau documents his practice and those of other tufuga tatatau (tattooing experts), contextualising it in relation to the history of Polynesian tattooing, Samoan communities worldwide, and New Zealand art."--interior front flap.
