Moko is the traditional tattoo of Maori. It reaches back centuries and has transformed, adapted and developed over the decades. Moko has many meanings and stories, one that I grew up learning was the legend of Niwareka & Mataora. It is an honor to have Moko adorn your body, it is the ancient language of our ancestors , Moko articulates the story of what the wearer chooses to share.
