These are pictures of some traditional tattoos. Traditionally, before the island's rapid conversion to Christianity in the 1930s, not all men were tattooed on the arms. Traditionally, all women were tattooed on the belly and thighs. Missionary teachings opposed tattooing and the last traditional tattoos were probably done in the 1940s. In the 1980s, there were still some living older women who had belly and thigh tattoos. There were no living men or women with arm tattoos. During the 1980s, some Sikaiana people, especially men, had a variety of tattoos that were done in different styles and not part of a shared ritual tradition. The pictures were taken in 1933 by the Templeton-Crocker expedition. The drawings were made by Henry Teloto using drawings from government reports.
