How was Ta Moko traditionally applied?
Ta Moko is a way of telling a story in an art form. The design shows what you have accomplished in your life this could be about your family or chosen line work. These are normally about your family history this being very important to Maori people. Some times Ta Moko can date back from 2000 years. They traditionally applied the design by caving the skin with an uhi (chisels). These chisels were made from albatross's bone, which was attached to a handle and struck with a mallet into the skin. To smooth the skin they would apply kauri tree gum combined with fat. Dead Caterpillars were used to make the pigment in Ta Moko they were dried, burnt and made into powder. The pigment or ink could also be made from burnt timber Anna.k
