They look like sketches that the tattoo artist paints on the skin. With thick and thin lines and rough shading, sometimes with a hatching effect, this wild style becomes what it is.

You know them forever, the tribal tattoos of the Maori also simply called Maori tattoos. The Maori are a people of New Zealand and they are known for their beautiful body painting. Traditionally, these tattoos were tapped into the skin by hand, as we know it, for example, nowadays from the Poke (English poke, not Pokemon) tattoos. The different patterns and motifs each have their own meaning, so you should thoroughly inform yourself beforehand about what you are actually tattooing.
