DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This design recalls the shape of the "mere", a short club used by warriors, which now symbolizes glory and overcoming difficulties. We integrated a triskell in it since it´s a symbol of eternity through birth, death and rebirth, and balance.

The gecko represents supernatural powers, the te manaia is a guardian angel and the turtle is the traveller.

Just below, the two opposed tikis protect the fish hook, symbol of wealth and abundance.

Requested by Jordan.

finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

That´s a great idea and the book looks fab. I wish there were more animal outlines though... - TatFan, Denver
