Print Information


Ta Moko

Moko was a highly skilled trade and the artists were treated with the utmost respect. The application was performed with a light tapping. Chisels were made from raupo or wood with blades of bone, Paua shell, sharks teeth and virtually anything that could be fashioned in to a cutting tool. Permanent dyes were made from burnt ash, plants and a special worm. It was protocol not to have any clothing and the tattooed person was fed with a stick (like a fork) for many weeks until the wounds healed. The moko describes their ancestry, skills, tribe and more.
