Maori Style tattoos

The ancient tradition of Maori tattooing is called ‘Ta moko‘ and was performed by the Maori tribes, indigenous to New Zealand. This process entailed the skin being carved rather than punctured, by the using of uhi (chisels). This left grooves in the skin rather than leaving it smoothed when healed.
