Malu-A woman’s tatau

I have been thinking about getting this tattoo for years. 2012 seems to be the year to do it. That is awhile from now, but the process begins now on researching where to do it, how much it will be, permission from my father’s village,whose coming with, etc. With Saman Maydani doing research on the traditional tattoo, I thought it was a good idea to share some pictures of the tattoo that I hope to undertake with some variations of my own.


The Male version taken from this blog:

Female Version:

Another reason to get this tattoo done? There are very FEW pictures on the internet of a completed Malu tattoo or the process for women. Let’s put an end to that.

    I saw this a few weeks ago:

    My dad is a tattoo artist, it’s sort of our family business, but he’s all the way in Guam. Best of luck with yours.
