maori design

By closetpirate
35K Views
I have been interested in maori tattoo designs (ta moko) for ages now, and I have finally designed one myself, with an influence of my own pattern work (see my gallery) mixed in with a traditional maori negative-space swirly thing...technical, I know. This isn't the complete version, I need to fiddle with paint shop pro to get it perfect but this is nearly it. By the way I am planning to get this as a tattoo in a couple of weeks fior my birthday so anyone who fancies it could just ask me to design another one for them...as I have no problem with that.
