Louis has one try getting a close up of that. Someone once told me that it's better to get one that means something coz 10 years down the track it will still mean the same thing. Or something like that. You should try getting someone to design you one with meaning for you and only you or your family its more special that way

Ronnie is correct

Are you Maori, if so it is best to get your family history rather than someone elses design. Ask your grandfather he mite have your familys history in a Moko or something

Yea thanks Ronnie.

i am a little bit maori but not lot's.
i just like the look for them.
There is really nothing that mean's a lot to me that would make me get a tattoo of it.
I asked mum is she wanted one of those tattoo with mum and a heart around it she said no. So yea

here's a good site, the artest on this site is the bast ive ever seen. if you are serious about getting a maori design.. then ask your local tattoo artest to design you one... just give them some info about your whanau and tribe and it will be done over night easy, remember you can use other peoples designs to help you get some ideas .. but if your thinking if steeling some one elses designs then you're just a eat arse and shouldn't bother with a tattoo

celtic designs are similar to maori, you should try to look for some of those ....they ain't as tapu as maori designs so you can use other peoples you like :)

the guy that did carlos's tamoko and toopis legs is da man, inia taylor in grey lynn www.mokoink.com is his website, louis anderson's is a tongan design, same fella that did epalahame's i think. but any of those tuturu artists wouldn't do it gracefully if it was jst a design you're after, they do a prayer and everything so its very tapu, better off just goin to a pakeha place and gettin one out of a book.

What ever you do WB, don't get a tribal tattoo, unless you are from that tribe, alot of people will not be too happy seeing you wearing their tribal tattoo, I'd show you mine but it's a whanau one and I don't want it anywhere on the internet. If you do find one you like make sure you know what it means first, most or all will have a meaning.
