DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Mauro requested this turtle tattoo with the name of his son Simone incorporated into the shell together with the letter R in the lower half.
The frangipani flower symbolizes protection, like the tikis on the front flippers.

The turtle symbolizes family and the dot in the middle was added to indicate its importance.

The warrior that makes its head symbolizes determination and tenacity; the back flippers are shaped by a fish hook (prosperity and abundance) and by a sea shell (love, safe shelter).

The R is carved into an element representing the octopus (adaptability, intelligence); the front flippers include shark teeth on the lower part and two korus/spirals (new life, eternity) on top.
