I think you can get the tattoos of Samoans. There’s a lot of Samoan people here. There are many Samoans here. A lot of Samoan people. I had Samoan tattoos before I went to the U.S. I am very proud of those tattoos.
Do you get recognized in the States?
The Samoan people are very friendly and very outgoing. I have an ex-wife, two kids and a new one. They are really nice people.
What’s your favorite tattoo? Is it a tattoo you’ve done a time or a tattoo you’d like to do?
My favorite tattoo is the cross on my back. I’m having a conversation with it today. I get that tattoo a lot. I’ve got a heart with my thumb and the rest of my hand is a cross. I don’t get much of a choice. It’s always the same idea. A cross, the first one, is on my right temple. It is a tribute to my family, to our father. My father was one of our great leaders, an important person in that society. The second one is from my right wrist to my right ankle. It is a tribute to my mother. There was once in my life somebody who left me a message on his chest that said, “When you need help, please don’t hesitate.” It was a big time in my life.
What’s the deal with this tattoo? Did the tattoo artist do it on accident? Couldn’t you get a nicer tattoo or did you really just get it there?
The tattoo artist did it on accident. That was supposed to just stick where it was and it has been over my body ever since.
You’re in college? What’s the name of the school?
Cincy is in the heart of Cincy!
I’m going to the barber shop tomorrow. They’re like, “We need your help.”
It’s just a tattoo. I have a great, great tattoo artist in Cincinnati. The guy is a wonderful tattoo artist. He is an American. He is going to be a great barber. One day he will come to Cincinnati. I have never met him because I live in Los Angeles. He’s going to open a shop in Cincinnati or wherever it is.
