    The Ta Moko Symbolism

    Originally, the Moko reflected the native New Zealand man’s tribal status and social ranking and in the modern day has become one of the most popular tattoo style.

    Every shape, pattern and symbol told a story of his unique tribal background and offered and reflected his connection and integrity within the tribe. However, what you see today isn’t always a precise representation of the past.

    In today's tattoos this symbolism gets lost to the beauty of the art it creates on the human body, but with the help of the award winning knowledge of this tattooing style, Northern Inks artists can connect you with historical symbolism it once represented.

    Ta Moko At It's Best

    J Lee studied the art of tribal Maori & Polynesian tattooing styles while tattooing in and around the south sea islands in the early 90's. He learned all the techniques needed from native tattooists when he spent time traveling around islands like Fiji, New Guinea & New Zealand to produce the very best in traditional Maori & Polynesian tattooing.
