Ta Moko Practitioner
"Moko to me is more than a tattoo, its a language of its own - the importance of it is not just in its appearance of being Maori, but its in the symbolism of the designs that connect the tupuna to the wearer, and the artist to the kaiwhiwhi." - Julious Mora
Kia ora e te whanau
Ko julious mora toku ingoa
Ko Tainui raua ko aotea oku waka
Ko Kakepuku raua ko Ruapehu õku maunga
Ko Piuniu raua ko Mangawhero õku awa
Ko Ngati Maniapoto raua ko Te atihaunui a paparangi õku iwi
Ko Ngati Paretekawa raua Ngati Ruwai oku hapu
Ko Mangatoatoa raua ko otoko oku marae
Julious does not keep readily made designs as this is not part of the process of ta moko as each piece is and should be custom designed to the individual. Each design is designed for the client which represents their unique lineage and family, life experiences, triumphs and tribulations. They may also represent healing that has taken place or a beloved family member who has passed on.
If you are interested in undergoing the process for your own piece, please feel free to contact Julious directly.
