To the Samoan's the "tatau" tattoo is sacred and epitomizes the importance of the dressed Samoan body.  The man would receive a "pe'a" which is the word for the fruit bat, whose color resembles the ink used in the "tatau".  The man's "pe'a" is on the entire lower half of his body from the navel to the knees.  The male's designs are representative of his surroundings, spear heads, shark teeth "nifo", sand, waves "sami" and fish. The Samoan woman's tattoo is only from her thighs to her knees and is called a "malu", translated means "protected and sheltered".  Her tattoo depicts images of birds, fish "i'a", shells, fine mats "fala" and other items that surround her every day life.
