DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This tattoo was prepared for Francesco´s calf and it symbolizes family, protected by the tiki on the front flippers, by the all-seeing eye in the center of the shell and by the warrior below it.

The spear heads and the centipede symbolize the warrior spirit to face adversities (the paths of Kamehameha on the sides) in order to reach their goals (the mountain tops inside the sun placed in front of the turtle).

Fish and coconut leaves around the flax leaves are symbols of prosperity while the braid on the shell of the turtle is a symbol of union.
