Ta Moko, Maori tattoo is sacred to the Maori people and all the people of New Zealand/Aotearoa. It is ours, our Taonga. Moko identifies our history and is a bridge to our future, it is our treasure. We own it. Other nations and cultures in the world have abundant variations of ways to scarify or mark or tattoo their bodies, Moko is ours, it which defines us from the rest.
