Tatau: Samoan Tattooing

It’s often a painful experience getting a tattoo; curator Sean Mallon explains why it is so important in Samoan culture.

Tales from Te Papa is a fascinating series of mini-documentaries showcasing many of the exciting, wonderful and significant objects held in our national museum.

Tales from Te Papa was commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
