KJ Apa samoan

KJ Apa is half Samoan as his father is Samoan. During an interview he revealed that Samoan culture had played a massive part in his life and at one point he used to speak fluent Samoan but he lost it.

“I have a massive Samoan family. And the Samoan culture has always played a massive part of my life, I’ve got hundreds of family on my dad’s side that live in Samoa and in New Zealand. I’ve just been surrounded by the culture ever since I was a kid. We go to Samoa once a year to see family. And my dad recently just got a traditional Samoan tattoo. He’s a chief in Samoa (Tupa’i) so he got the tattoo to commemorate it. I got a small tattoo when I was 15 when my dad became chief.”

KJ Apa Tattoo

At the age of 17 after his grandfather died he traveled to Samoa and he got a tattoo on his shoulder that honors his Samoan heritage. “My dad’s father was a high chief… and the family agreed my dad would take over his chief title: Tupa’i. Later, we decided to get a tattoo to commemorate that.” He told The New Zealand Herald.
