DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Face tattoos were to Maori people a sort of identity card, where merits of the bearer and of his ancestors were drawed, as well as their deeds and social rank.

Maori people got tattooed also to become more charming, both men and women, although women were far less tattooed than men.

This design of a stylized Maori face tattoo was inspired by a request from Lally.

finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

I have skimmed through the book and become so very interested in the contents... Very good and suitable for a self-education in Tattoo-ology! - Anne, London
