Also join us on facebook under MOKO AKE.
MOKO AKE KAUPAPA AND PHILOSOPHY…99.5% of ta moko is about being a good person who lives staunchly as a Maori with tikanga and values, with culture, traditions and heritage. With background. With substance. 0.5% of Moko is about…tattooing!
Mark Kopua’s new Moko Ake Ta Moko Studio is located at 11 Jillett St, Titahi Bay, Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand.
