Abstract:

In the traditional Māori world, the moko, or 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, Māori tattooing is now experiencing a powerful revival, with many young Māori wearing the moko as a spectacular gesture of racial pride.This examines the use of tattooing by traditional and contemporary Māori and links it to other aspects of Māori culture. Gender issues are considered along with tattooing techniques both old and new. The book features case studies of modern Māori who have made a personal decision to be tattooed; the role and status of the tattooers; exploitation of the moko in popular culture around the world by figures such as rock singers and football players.
