“The uhi (tattoo implement) was used to split the skin through a rhythmical tapping process. The back edge of the uhi was struck with the pātuki (tapping stick). The pigment was applied to these fresh cuts once healed produced deep grooved scars making Māori moko different to other tattoos of the Pacific”.
