DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

We prepared a pec tattoo for Girish and later extended it into a halfsleeve.

An all seeing eye, frangipani flowers and the tiki on the shoulder are protective symbols that guard on him and his family (the warrior and the turtle).

Other elements representing the warrior are the spear heads and the hammerhead shark (determination, tenacity) balanced on the other side of the tiki by the dolphin (playfulness, joy).
Fish and fish hooks symbolize prosperity and birds are for voyages and watching the world from a higher perspective.

An eye of Horus was included for further protection and a gecko for health.
Other symbols are mountains (stability), a sea shell (love and intimacy), an octopus tentacle (tenacity, adaptability), two maorigrams, a braid for union, a Marquesan cross for harmony and balance, and the path of Kamehameha (a difficult path that leads to success).
