In the original story of Samoa’s most famous legend, “The Turtle and the Shark”, it was a blind grandmother and her beloved granddaughter. The two jump off a cliff and transform into the legendary Turtle and Shark when they landed in the water. There is more to this story, however, I recommend you find it on the web and read the rest. For a while I’ve been playing around with a story involving this legend. Think of it as a continuation but with a twist. In my modern version, it’s two cousins. In this scene, they are being given the magical tattoos to transform into the legends by the goddesses of tattoos, Tilafaiga and Taema. I’m still working out the kinks for the story, but this is what I’ve got going for now. Good night and have a blessed weekend!
