thanks guys for all the great words.
Tamma-thanks a lot! coming from someone in Aotearoa, your comps on maori work are recieved very well. sorry to be so direct, though not wanting to assume, are you of Maori decent yourself? your stonework (along with others) has been inspiring me to get some new tips for my dremmel and start exploring.

Kia ora GreentikiPat

Credit where credit is due! As Kon-Hemsby says above; these are some of the best tiki-tats Ive ever seen too. I dont suppose you have any needles that will reach this far do you? Id be coming for a visit if I lived any closer (after 10 years I finally showed my mother the Mona Lisa that graces my shoulder, opening the way for MORE...)

Just a 16th-part Maori (but pretty well versed in the Hei-tiki; you have done it proud. I like the originality too. The way you have placed the arms gives a nice feminine feel.

Im sure the change from tattoo gun to Dremmel shouldnt be too difficult for you; just 'shaping' instead of 'shading' those forms. *Remember to pick up the right tool when youve got a punter sitting in your chair though!
