Maori Art


Skin III

Originally uploaded by isolatediguana

While in New Zealand back in 2006 I fell in love with the Maori people and culture. The tattoos specifically were something that drew me in. Many of the tattoos are traditionally on the face, of course I doubt I will ever be that brave. I love the strong bold designs as well as the flowing curved lines.
The most recent tattoo of mine is Maori inspired and I am proud to have a piece of their culture as part of my art.
Check out some more pictures here.

gorgeous.  Love the light, the disheveled hair, the desaturation, and the ink.
