Maori: more than tattoos

Today we speak about the meaning of Maori tattoos, a common practice for all the Polinesia’s ¬†islands but each of them has its own tattoos style. Maori tattoos represent a ritual ceremony that symbolizes the passage from childhood to ¬†adulthood. Generally is the first tattoo a MOKO, a traditional tattoo done on the face to tell its history.
