Tribal - Tattoowise
Full Body Tattoo, 3 different tones (Light, Medium & Dark).
The tattoo is in Maory decorative style (Kirituhi).
The difference between the moko and the kirituhi is the exclusiveness of the first one.
In other words, the moko was drawn only specifically by the maori for the maori, and the tattoo symbolized important events in the life of the maori person that was tattooed, while the use of the kirituhi has no limitations.
Calling our tattos Moko I think could be an offense for Maori people.
However here are some meanings that various cultures assign to some animals or symbols that you can find in the tattoos.

Me encanta el olor de un libro que es tan tan viejo que tiene hojas duras. Me hace reír con más ganas que nunca la risa de un niño pequeño, con tantas ganas y sin contención... Me da muuuuuuuucha vergüenza cantar delante de alguien, pero me encanta hacerlo cuando estoy sola y no me oye nadie. Me relaja asomarme a la ventana a mirar estrellas y, simplemente, respirar, cuando me despierto a media noche. Notar cómo el frío eriza mi piel me hace sentir viva. Me esfuerzo por marcar un poco más todos los días esas arrugas que empiezan a salir a los lados de mi boca. Me desespera oír gemir a un perro (en general, a cualquier animal). Me gusta echarme las cartas a mí misma, y creerme sólo lo bueno :) Me encantan los días en los que te levantas contenta sin motivos! Sonrío si acaricio las orejas de Amarok o de Zoe con la nariz :) Son tan suaves...! Me asombra que esas arañas que son muy, muy pequeñas, sean capaces de correr taaan rápido! Nunca dejan de sorprenderme los

"Loooooong Day, But A Good One." I had to go to work early today to do trays for parties at the other store. Then it was time to focus on the event at our location. A plated dinner. Plated dinners for parties haven't alwats worked so well for us. This is primarily because they had a way of doing things and tended to not want to change. Can you say chaotic? So, I put the proverbial foot down and said this time we were doing it my way. After all, I do have large scale banquet experience, having plated as many as 550 meals at one time, and producing buffets for up to 805 people. So I had it planned out perfectly, even though the sales person sold eight different entrees to 67 people. In 16 minutes, it was all over. I left a happy man. Tomorrow I will not be quite so happy as I have to work a double shift again. But my new day guy is doing very well, and much more productive than the one I had before, and my former night shift manager, who left for greener pastu
