DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Jenna requested a Maori styled tattoo of an emperor penguin to remind her of Antarctica, a place where she spent a period of her life, and which fascinated her.

We also prepared a second version with two joined penguins shapeing a heart to symbolize a characteristic of this animal: devotion. Devotion towards the mate and towards the babies (in this case pictured by a koru, a symbol of new life).

Waves motifs remark continuity through change.
