DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This particular design was requested by Antonino: a turtle with a koru on the shell, sharks as paws and geckos as hind legs and tail.

The turtle symbolizes family, and also the navigator when alone; the koru symbolizes a new beginning, life that goes on; sharks represet strength and adaptability and the gecko symbolizes protection and supernatural powers.

Being the koru in the middle, we can read this tattoo as related to a new beginning, for which protection and strength are wished.
