Interpretation Maori Tiki with modern styling Tattoo with koru Flash Design

here is a design of a Tiki that I came up with a while ago. It has a modern feel to it, almost a manga kinda look.

It is not strictly a Maori design as I am not wanting to offend any particular tribe by mis-using a design. I think the Koru on the forehead set it off nicely. Want to use this flash design ? Please add a link to this page on your website or email me the finished tattoos so I can post it on tattoo-flash-design web site. I have included the outline version for making stencils to help get it on your flesh in ink ASAP!

Mau Moko: The World of Maori Tatoo (Hardcover)

From the Publisher

In the traditional Maori world, the moko, the facial or body tattoo, was a sign of great mana and status. Male warriors wore elaborate tattoos on their faces and bodies; women took more delicate chin tattoos. After almost dying out in the twentieth century, Maori tattooing is now experiencing a powerful revival, with many young Maori wearing the moko as a spectacular gesture of racial pride.

Mau Moko is a magnificent look at the moko, from pre-European times to the present day. It examines the use of tattooing by traditional and contemporary Maori and links it to other aspects of Maori culture. Gender issues are considered along with tattooing techniques both old and new. The book features case studies of modern Maori who have made a personal decision to be tattooed; the role and status of tattooers; and exploitation of the moko in popular culture around the world by figures such as rock singers and football players.

Mau Moko is superbly illustrated with paintings, photographs, and drawings from traditional times and by new color photography by Becky Nunes commissioned for the book.
