    Wicked. Eyes are awesome, lips too. Composition first rate.

    …so how is it your identity can be a woman?

    The tattoo on her chin is called a Moko Kauwae.
    The tattoo has seperated her from looking like a normal person to a person who is now representing her ancestors.
    Maori call it their Whakapapa meaning family,those b4 you,tribe and ancestors.
    Some tribes here have certain designs in their tattoos, so that we are able to identify where she is from and which family or whanau she is reprezenting.
    thats how “This is me”and “My Identity”came in2 it.
    thanx james good Question

    Great line work once again. I love Moko, Malu and Pe’a but dare not tread on using them because of the meaning they possess.
