Far Cry 3’s Tatau takes its name from the Samoan word for tattoo, which is where the English term comes from. In Samoan culture, a tatau is a set of traditional markings on the lower half of the body that signify the right of passage for young adults and are said to represent courage, respect and power.
Dennis realizes how strong Jason is and immediately sees his potential to become a great warrior within this tribe. Jason is then given the ‘Tatau’ (tattoo) that symbolizes and represents the Rakyat tribe. From this point on, Jason works with his new group and completes missions for them.
The tatau means “to mark” and is a long-established Samoan practice. For men, it is the pe’a, a dense tattoo that completely covers the lower body from waist to knee. The malu is the equivalent tattoo for women and covers the legs from the thigh to behind the knee but is not as dense as the pe’a.
If the player owns the Far Cry 3 Deluxe Edition, after the initial tutorial mission where Grant and Jason try to escape from Vaas’ camp, Jason will suddenly have a full tribal sleeve tattoo on his right arm to have. This does not appear to be part of the tattoo and is purely cosmetic.

After Citra finishes, she stabs Jason in the chest as part of the ritual. As Jason lies bleeding to death, Citra says he is a warrior and should die a warrior, and that her child will wield Rakyat. Before Jason dies, Citra whispers, “You win.”
3000 years Samoan Tatau
The Samoan Islands are virtually unique in that tattooing has been continuously practiced using indigenous techniques: the full male tattoo, the pe’a, has evolved has been developing subtle ways in its design since the nineteenth century while remaining as sophisticated, meaningful and powerful as ever.
The navel design is very important and is called turkey. Without the turkey, the tattoo is unfinished and the wearer feels embarrassed for not being able to complete the ceremony. The word for a female tattoo is malu, which means protected and guarded.
Unlike abilities, tatau marks derived from relics are purely cosmetic. Relics are divided into four animals: Heron, Shark, Spider, and Boar. Each relic found adds a new point to the tatau, and collecting all 120 relics when purchasing all abilities will completely end the tatau by the end of the game.
Tribal tattoos have been used for hundreds of years by different cultures as marks showing people’s affiliation with a particular culture or “society. Some people who belonged to a tribe had a mark implanted in their skin showing that they belonged to that particular clan.
Although multiple faces and skin tones are available, facial hair and tattoos/details are not available for player characters; the special outfits with the only real facial hair options for men, for example.

It helps that Rex Colt is quite a charismatic and compelling protagonist himself. His fierce demeanor fits Far Cry’s style perfectly, making him the best protagonist the series has ever seen.
