Photo: Wairakei Terraces Maori Tattooing New Zealand

In the Maori village at the Wairakei Terraces in New Zealand, a warrior is tattooing another member of his tribe while visitors watch.

Tattooing is a very important part of the Maori culture and the more detailed a tattoo is, the higher the warrior is ranked in his tribe. In the Maori village at the Wairakei Terraces in New Zealand, a tribal member lays on a flax woven covering as another member carefully details his face.Different designs are created, with each one carrying a special meaning symbolic to the Maori culture. The tattooing of Maori women is usually only done below their chins, while the men are marked on their faces as well as their legs.While at the Wairakei Terraces in New Zealand, be sure to stop by the tattooing demonstration and learn of their meanings and see how detailed each one is.Maori Tattooing at the Wairakei Terraces near Taupo, North Island, New Zealand.
