One could think that in a country so blessed with such a strong background of traditional tattoos, tattoos wouldn’t be so looked down upon. People are people, tho, so it’s not the case. As everywhere else, ppl’s perspectives on the subject vary and some are for, some against and some don’t really care. However, it’s still interesting to read how tattooed New Zealanders live and work, so here you have an article about the NZ workplace and tattoos.
Concidentally, German websites also ran some articles focused on NZ and tattoos, so take a look at this (some info on native New Zealanders between the lines) and also at a meagre few lines about Maori tattoos.
