Another form of tribal tattoos, moari Tattoos can be considered as the most painful tattoos. An ancient tattoo art which has it's roots in New Zealand. These tattoos were made by cutting and pricking the skin not leaving it smooth, and then color it afterwards. They used the word tatu for it, so basically the word Tattoo also has it's origin from there.
The Moari tattoo art was considered a warrior symbol- a sign of bravery. Indeed it was a sign of bravery as it included heavy pain, in which people sometime died at the spot. The males used to had it on their faces, while women tend to have it on their lips and buttocks. The artists used to do it with chisels made from albatross bones hefted onto a handle. The amazing part here is that, all the tattoos made back then used to be different meaning no two tattoos looked similar to each other when closely observed.
