Tā moko is a body and face marking or tattoo by Māori, the indigenous people of New Zealand.
While in the Bay of Islands on New Zealand’s North Island last January we met Brent Kerehona who was midway getting his moko and allowed us to take this photo and use it here, as long as one of us was in the shot. The girl is my lovely niece who was visiting us at the time.
Have you ever seen a moko? Have you been to New Zealand?
