Modern Maori tribal tattoo is becoming increasingly popular, and is a great expression of uniqueness, style and fashion. It is also a symbol of sacrifice, daring and respect due to its traditionally long and painful process of acquiring ta moko. If you choose to ink ta moko tattoos on your body, you may want to avoid using those designs that carry special attributes of the Maori tribe. The Polynesian tattoos are creative and beautiful which consist of complex curved patterns and spiral shapes. Contemporary ta moko are usually blended with Celtic tattoos to form new distinctive artworks. Ta moko arts have become one of the most important sources of tribal tattoos around the world as Maori tattoos have their own uniqueness and special characteristic among all the Polynesian tattoos.
