Kia ora, Welcome to my second Vlog. My name is Lance Ngata. I'm a Maaori art practitioner based in Turangi, Taupo New Zealand. I specialise in Taa Moko (tattoo), Whakairo (carving), illustration with a background in Design and Teaching. I've started this Vlog series to share my design process for contemporary Taa moko aka kiritaa, Maaori tattoo. These are shine/ankle pieces from the other day. I will try to cover a range of body placements and hope that people will find something useful from seeing the process, when deciding to receive this type of tattoo for themselves.
Note: This is one process, this is not necessarily the same process taken by other practitioners. I use my background in te ao toi Maaori; art, carving, design and geographic knowledge to design my work.
