10 readers' tribal tattoos

This is my nephew Te Pehi's moko on his arm. It's a symbol of his pride, identity and belonging within his iwi (tribe) of Ngati Toarangatira. It portrays his whakapapa (genealogy) and his ancestors. It references where his bones are from, and the area in which he grew up - Porirua, in Wellington. It features an image of his tribal mountain Whitireia, and traditional designs that represent his whanau (family) members. Taryn Te Uira Beri, New Zealand
