Introducing Onamata Design Nail Tattoos! This design is inspired by the intricate whakapapa, or connection to everything that is, was and ever will be. Onamata means "the eyes of our tūpuna (those that came before us)" and is inherently linked with Anamata, "the eyes of our mokopuna (those that come after us)."

This beautiful set of nail tattoos grounding you in your belonging in this moment and connect you with every moment that came before and every one that will follow. The perfect way to show your connection to your culture, these tattoos are sure to start conversations and make a statement. 

*Whakaaro (ideas) shared by Hana Burgess and Te Kahuratai Painting in their extraordinary chapter in Whose Futures.

Each foil sheet includes 12 Professional Nail Foils (37mm long)

Handmade with love in Aotearoa.

Designed by Lance from 818 Ink
