Top 10 Most TERRIFYING Facts About MAORI WARRIORS

The Maori individuals of New Zealand came from eastern Polynesia in waves of canoes at some point in between 1250 and 1300 AD. Over the centuries, they developed a rich and intricate society that consisted of an intense and terrifying warrior culture. Europeans explained the Maori warriors as large men, although females could be warriors as well, who had comprehensive facial tattoos. While they looked fearsome, their extreme physical appearance is only the start of exactly what made these warriors so scary.

Each style was distinct, but normally they remained in the shape spirals. They were tattooed on throughout an event, and each line revealed the person’s bravery and strength. After all, these tattoos weren’t placed on using a needle weapon. Rather, they were carved into the skin utilizing a mallet and a chisel that was made from a bone and the ink was made from ash and fat. This left the skin with grooves like a record, instead of being smooth like modern tattoos.
