Tattoos, Ta Moko, Tattoo Designs
Kiaora my name is Rawiri Koia (Ra). I am of Ngati Porou descent from the east coast of the North Island.
I graduated from "The New Zealand Maori Arts And Crafts Institute" in Rotorua, now referred to as Te Puia. I have completed a three year diploma in Whakairo (Maori Wood Carving), under the guidance of four well respected Tohunga (master carvers).
My aim as a Maori artist is to preserve, promote and perpetuate the Maori arts and crafts. I am currently working from "Steve Johnson's City Of Ink" tattoo studio, specialising in Ta Moko (Maori Tattoo, design and application).
