There was a thread awhile ago about tattoos, lots of pros and cons. I don't care, I have none. Tatoos are a Pacific culture thing, and were done with a chisel. I was trying to find a good photo at the time, so here is a colourised photo of a Maori Chief taken in 1884, you can see the chisel lines. I'd need a smack on the head with a mere (club) before getting a little tatoo like that.

Looks like the finish on the bridge of his nose really caused some pain and lasting affect.

If its part of their culture for hundreds of years it looks good.

If its some young punk trying to be a bad [censored] then it very looks silly. I see many young men with a 'sleeve' covered with terrible looking tattos.

Modern Maori facial tattoos are done in ink, with fat lines...the look is intimidating and ''scary''. These chisel tattoos don't look intimidating at all, he looks proud and dignified.

First time I had heard of this type of tattoo. I know the Maori culture revers tattoos. They have a name for them which escapes me at this moment. Thanks for sharing Silk.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

The New Zealand Maori has a Moko and the Samoan has a Pe'a

Just got back from NZ - saw lots of people sporting some very impressive tattoos, none that were done with a chisel though!

Very interesting. Not for me, but also more legit, imo, than most tattoos out there today, posed as "art".

Some tropical cultures gauging their flesh for centuries is something I cannot relate to.
Do remember, the Maori are why the .45 ACP was developed.
They should be brought to this country, trained to detect baddies and released.

Today's tats are lumped into the disgusting, broad category of "copy cat consumerism".
Smoking cigarettes = trying to be tough and cool PLUS the ad campaigns (evil psych ops-and everybody knows it)
Keeping up with the Jone's = YOU'RE a SLAVE to your ego and you're weak.
Tattoos = Really short sighted consumerism. Completely unoriginal (gimme a 17b, please). NOBODY wakes up and feels he wants a tattoo. Total copy cat.
I suppose they are better than wife beating.

Can't say I like 'em.

I would think any kind've unnatural augmentation of the skin would be begging to cause some form of skin cancer,especially dyes and inks.
