Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson

Dreamt I had a face tattoo similar to this and I put my contemporary glamour make-up on top of it. A small male child feared me. Maori People, New Zealand. Photo by Jimmy Nelson | Yellowtrace

Tribal tats. New Zealand, Mori (sp?) indians. This is actually a painting. I have visited New Zealand a bit, and been to its museums; I have a postcard of this painting...somewhere. ak

Māori Tā Moko face marking was a sacred practice among the indigenous tribes of New Zealand. Each moko design was unique to each individual, (no two designs were ever the same as they were never duplicated) and signified a young man’s transition from childhood to manhood. As well as representing rank and status these marks also had significant meaning to the wearer, symbolically connecting them to their ancestors and lineage.
