Mandala is the Sanskrit word for “circle”, and as a tattoo, is composed of shapes and symbols that radiate from the center outwards in a circular pattern. Like a circle, a mandala is meant to reflect balance, eternity, and perfection. For those who need a reminder in geometry, the distance from the centre of a circle to all points on it remains the same. The mandala is a unique design that emulates this sense of harmony.

Maori tattoo is an important aspect of native society, linked with ancestry and a sense of “Maori” pride. The practice of tattooing by the Maori people is actually Maori Tattooancient. The tattoo instrument was a bone uhi (chisel) with an extremely sharp straight edge which caused deep cuts into the skin. Once finished, the skin had grooves. Ta moko was painful and long process, during the procedure flute music and chant poems were performed to help soothe the pain; while marking the body there were some prohibitions, and for the facial tattoo in particular sexual intimacy and the eating of solid foods were forbidden. Liquid food and water was drained into a pipe made of wood to ensure that no dirty thing came into contact with the swollen skin. This was the only way the tattooed person could eat until the wounds healed. The full faced tattoo was very time consuming and a good tattoo craftsman would carefully study a person’s bone structure before the ta moko procedure.

Old School style Tattoos (and Old Skool) become popular in 1920’s. The main characteristics of the old school design are large and bold images made with solid colours and thick outlines in either blue or black. The reason for the big and bold designs can mainly be attributed to the fact that the techniques used to create the tattoos are very different than those used today. Because the quality of the machines and the ink were not very good, the designs were kept simple and bold so they would wear well over time.
