DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The symbol of the three moons, crescent, full an declining, which is often associated to the triple goddess Brighid, is not a protection tattoo itself, but represents instead the phases o a woman´s life and their sacrality: the crescent moon represents the virgin, and it´s associated to birth, youth, new beginnings and enchantment; the full moon is the mother, and it represents ripeness, sexuality, completeness and life; the declining moon symbolizes old age, wisdom and rest,death and endings.

The spiral formed by the phrase "Protége moi de mes désires" is in this case a symbol of introspection (it turns inwards instead of expanding) and the signs around it belong to the Bhuddists protective symbols tradition.

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
