Moko was unique in that the face was decorated with intricate spirals
which were not only tattooed but incised into the skin to make scars
in the form of parallel ridges and grooves. With the exception of slaves
and commoners, all men were tattooed on the face and most were also
tattooed on other parts of the body. An elegantly tattooed face was a
great source of pride to a warrior, for it made him fierce in battle
and attractive to women.
This ancient art of tribal tattooing is having a marked influence on modern face and body painting designs as artists are exposed to the designs and images displayed in the media. Artists hungry for ideas to re-work have found inspiration in the linear patterns that have a modern similarity to the lines found on electronic circuit boards.

Two-Face beats Dick brutally, and Grayson realizes that the villain's darts had been coated with the Scarecrow 's fear toxins. Two-Face continues to beat the fallen crime-fighter angrily, shouting that he could never replace the original Batman. He also reveals that he had been trying to infiltrate the famed Batcave for years, but had no success until that day, because the original Batman would never leave himself open to attack. Alfred Pennyworth saves Dick by giving him an antidote for the toxin, careful to stay in the shadows so as not to be recognized by Two-Face. Dick recovers and slips into the inner depths of the cave, disappearing from Two-Face's view. Dent starts to panic and starts firing his gun at every shadow, and Dick then retaliates by administering a savage beating. Defeated, Two-Face admits he really believes that Dick is the original Batman, but has changed in major ways.
