The Maori are an ancient indigenous tribe that lived mainly in parts of New Zealand. Like many of the ancient tribes in America, the Maori had a form of body art called the Moko which they used as an identity of their tribe. These tattoos had a lot of meaning and were mainly adorned on the face. They were used to depict social status, prestige and power. This form of body art was and still is considered sacred by the indigenous people of Polynesia.
The Maori tattoos consist of complex patterns of spirals and curves and they add a lot of aesthetic appeal to a man’s body. This form of body art became popular and created a global impact towards the fag end of the 20th century and it continues to capture the hearts of tattoo enthusiasts including celebrities like Robbie Williams. However, it requires a lot of patience and craftmanship on the part of a tattoo artist to bring out the best Maori tattoos in terms of style and appeal.
