100 Maori Tattoos - Samoan Tattoos - Polynesian Tattoos
Maori tattoos (and Samoan and Polynesian tattoos) have been famous for thousands of years with their simultaneous simplicity and complexity. They layer simple lines and shapes together and make a body a large canvas for a big picture of life. Every tiny shape and design has a meaning and when they are put together, they tell a story. All of the symbols in these tattoos from the spear to the Marquesas cross, have a special meaning.
