Maori Tattoos Designs

For centuries, Maori women have been tattooed on the lips, chin, neck, or back. Maori men have been tattooed on the buttocks, face, and legs. Throughout history, Maori tattoos have been part of a long-standing ritual. Tattooing would usually begin around adolescence and it was used to highlight important events. It is believed that those without tribal Maori tattoos were worthless and without status.
