Company description
Te Rangitu Netana is a Traditional Maori Tattoo Artist from New Zealand, and is of Ngapuhi, Ngati Wai and Te Arawa tribal descent. He has been practicing Ta Moko for 25 years, and is experienced in both modern machine and traditional chisel methods of tattooing.

He has travelled extensively throughout his career, working with tattoo masters from many cultures, including Hawaiian, Samoan and European. After spending many years travelling and working at international tattoo conventions, showcasing his work and sharing his culture, as well as 9 years working from his home in the Far North of New Zealand, Te Rangitu is now in the UK, and based from a private studio near Colchester, Essex.

He is well known for his fine lines and intricate detail, and the way that he weaves the wearer’s story into his designs, leaving them with a piece of artwork on their skin that reflects their own beliefs and spirituality.

For further reference, his work is featured in the book ‘Planet Ink’, released late 2012, where author and photographer Dale Rio selected 20 of the world’s best tattoo artists to interview and showcase their work. He also features in other books, one of the best is ‘Mau Moko’, by Maori academic, Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, and photographer Becky Nunes, released in 2005, which showcases a number of leading ta moko artists and their opinions and discussions relating to their artform.
