Maori Moko, or Ta Moko is the tradtional facial tattooing of the Maori tribe of New Zealand

Its memebers still practice the act of Moko with modern machines, but traditionally they where acutally carved into the face by Tohunga-Ta-Moko using a Uhi which is basically a chisel and then had soot from the burnt embers of a tree for the black coloring for the face
