Pip Hartley is on a mission to infuse Auckland’s city core with as much Māori culture as possible. From her Karanaga Ink studio, she practices traditional and contemporary Māori tattooing, tā moko. Although her approach is always guided in Māori style, it is a dance between artist and receiver in telling a story that will become permanent. Pip embraces the power of artistic expression to inspire and educate. Karanaga Ink has become one of Auckland’s most respected Māori businesses in a very influential part of New Zealand. Pip takes every opportunity to educate, include and invite the modern world to step into Māori culture and gain a better first-hand understanding of her people.

Written and directed by Angie-Pepper O'Bomsawin.
