Languages International student, Rolf Wegmuller of Switzerland, recently had a pleasant yet painful experience of traditional New Zealand Maori art.

This took 2 hours. The tattoo is one of a kind. There is not another one like it in the world. The designs illustrate strength, happiness and an easy going nature.

Rolf decided to undergo this pain to get a true taste of kiwi culture and showcase his New Zealand experience to the rest of the world.
