Maori Tattoos

The demand for tribal art has become hugely popular in recent years. In particular anything related to the Maori tribes who are the indigenous people of New Zealand. Their artwork included chiselling instead of puncturing of the skin better known as Ta moko - traditional Maori tattooing - Moko (tattoos) were applied to the face and body. In men the moko could cover the whole face and the patterns on each area of the face communicated specific things, such as social standing, and family history.

Maori type tattoos have become increasingly popular in recent times and especially within the western world. As a result Maori people began to question the integrity of certain people, and the reasoning behind their ancient artwork traditions being copied and why certain quarters of the general public wished to pursue their ancient tribal artwork. To reconcile the demand for Maori designs in a culturally sensitive way, the Te Uhi, a Mataora group promotes the use of the term kirituhi, which has now gained wide acceptance...Kirituhi translates literally to mean—"drawn skin." As opposed to Moko which requires a process of consents, genealogy and historical information, Kirituhi is merely a design with a Maori flavour that can be applied anywhere, for any reason and on anyone.

Nearly all registered tattooists cater for Maori and directly related tribal tattoos, and normally have a selection of arm and leg tattoos available, so you'll never really be stuck on which one best suits you and. With the demand getting bigger, there should be even more options available in the marketplace and that can only be a good thing for people wishing to express their approval for a certain tribal piece of art.

Lip Tattoos

Taking the plunge and getting a lip tattoo shouldn't be taken lightly and you should way up the pros and cons in getting this type of tattoo done.

The skin inside you lip is a naturally sensitive area, so you will experience more pain than a normal tattoo on your arm, body or leg. The saliva you produce will help keep the area clean and using mouth wash on a regular basis will aid in keeping infections away from the tattoo especially trapped food particles.

This type of tattoo has become more popular in the past decade and there has been a growing demand particulary from males at a specific age group. The lip tattoos usually consist of a phrase, word, symbol or partners name and they are personal unlike the majority of other tattoos due to their unusual location.

A lip tattoo is certainly for lovers of art who wish to take their experience that  bit further. This type of tattoo isn't to everyone's liking and the fact that it will eventually disappear after 3 to 5 years can be an annoyance and may seem like a waste of time and money to some folk, but for that personal touch it's certainly worth serious consideration.

If you decide to get a lip tattoo then, get it done by a professional and a fully registered tattooist or you could end up with a nasty mouth infection if the ink hasn't been applied correctly to the lip area. Taking shortcuts with this type of specialist tattoo would be a foolish move and one in which you'll regret and as there are so many qualified people who carry out this delicate manouvere across the globe, there are no excuses in trying to cut corners with a lip tattoo.
