Moko is the Maori art of facial or body tattooing. It is an expression of personal, social and tribal identity. Dating back hundreds of years, the art form is undergoing a resurgence as New Zealand's Maori reassert their cultural tradition.
Like this only the spirals were on my forehead. Maori man with a facial Ta Moko tattoo. Not that I would ever get this kind of tattoo, but I find the tattoo traditions of different cultures fascinating!
