DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Nils requested this tattoo of a composite shark for its meaning (strength and adaptability) and for its shape as it can nicely follow the lines of the muscles on the side of the ribs and abs.

The central part of the shark´s body includes a turtle whose shell is made of a sun (shaped by mountains and with a koru on the inside).
Its back flippers are fish hooks for prosperity.

Below the turtle there is a lizard (good luck and health) whose tail becomes the tail of the shark together with the tail of a manta (freedom, intelligence, beauty) that shapes the tail fins of the shark.

The tail of manta rays made of spear heads are often used as a symbology for sexuality.

finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

I have skimmed through the book and become so very interested in the contents... Very good and suitable for a self-education in Tattoo-ology! - Anne, London
