The maori tattoo meaning is very extensive and finds its origin in the original inhabitants of New Zealand, the maori.In the Maori culture, tribal members with high status and prestige were tattooed. The tribesmen who did not have a tattoo had a lower social status.


The maoris had this decoration tattooed mainly on the face but also on the buttocks, thighs and other parts of the body.Nowadays, maori tattoos are generally done because people just like them.
