Portrait of Maori Ta Moko artist Darby Tuhaka from Aotearoa. Ta Moko tells the story and family history of the native people of New Zealand. The facial tattoo - chiseled into the skin by hand using a tool made from Albatros bone - is the property of the wearer and must never be copied by another person. Much respect, my friend! #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #tamoko #darbytuhaka #maori #aotearoa #newzealand #traditionaltattoo #tattootradition #polynesiatattoo #tribaltattoo #blackwork #realblackwork #blackworkers #portrait #portraitphotography

Is it really the end of a legend? King of Tattoo convention in Tokyo, next weekend at the LOFT club in Shinjuku, Japan April 29/30th. An incredible display of body art and unique Japanese tradition. This part of tattoo culture is in danger now! Please support @katsuta66 and the @tokyohardcoretattoo crew by attending this event! You simply can't miss it, because there won't be another one... #travelinmick @save.tattooing.in.japan #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #tattootokyo2020 #kingoftattoo #traditionaltattoo #tattootradition #tattooart #japanesetattoo #japaneseculture #japaneseart #finaledition

Can't wait to get back to Japan next weekend! The great tradition of tebori hand tattooing is more alive than ever. Still, a full bodysuit on a lady like this one by @horikashi is a rare sight! #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #savetattooinginjapan #japanesetattoo #tattootokyo2020 #tebori #irezumi #japanesetattoo

On my travel schedule this October 1,2: the world's first @builderstattooindustryexpo in Amsterdam, a trade fair for professionals in the tattoo equipment business, including machine builders, artists, suppliers etc. I know that this topic will be hotly discussed, but did you realize that we have developed into a veritable industry, creating millions of jobs worldwide? Many of them for artists, craftspeople, engineers, creative souls and many others... It's worth a thought before you start going on about commercialization of our art and tradition #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #builderstattoo #tattoomachine #celebrityguest #judge #amsterdam #tattooindustry

Back to Japan next week for the King of Tattoo convention in Shinjuku, Tokyo; April 29/30 to document great tebori work like this one here by @horiyoshi_3 Watch this space for details! And we are shooting a documentary for Swiss TV on the past, present and future of Japanese tattooing in these difficult times. Can't wait to support @save.tattooing.in.japan as well with Taiki Maeda going to trial on April 26th for the "crime" of tattooing without a doctor's license #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #savetattooinginjapan #japanesetattoo #tattootokyo2020 #kingoftattoo #tebori #irezumi

The Mentawai on the Indonesian island of Siberut make use of everything in their environment: here they are stripping the bark of a tree to manufacture a loincloth! #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #traditionaltattoo #tattootradition #traditionallife #tattooart #tradition #history #indonesia #mentawai #siberut #blackwork #blackworkers #dotwork #tattoophotography #travelphotography #asiatravel #portraitphotography #portrait

One of my favorite tattoos: getting handtapped by shaman Aman Gresik in Mentawai island, Indonesia, with a safety pin. Love the pragmatism of those people... And he told me it's a spider design. But why has it only six legs? #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #traditionaltattoo #tattootradition #blackwork #blackworkers #handpoke #dotwork #tattooculture #tattoophotography #travelphotography #indonesia #mentawai #indonesiatattoo #siberut #aroundtheworld

Happy Mentawai grandfather. Now passed away, but I am sure he lived a simple and content life. The Siberut island, one day sailing from the Sumatra west coast in Indonesia were basically untouched by civilization until a few decades ago. The Mentawai even now stick with their animist religion and worship the spirits of the forest that kept their culture alive for millennia #travelinmick #worldoftattoogallery #tattooforever #tattoohistory #tattooculture #ethnic #mentawai #sinerut #indonesia #indonesiatattoo #traditionaltattoo #tattootradition #animism #tattoophotography #lovenature #beautiful #travelphotography #portraitphotography #portrait
