DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Viviana requested a Polynesian styled tattoo to represent a sunny, feminine and light spirit.
We chose therefore to use floral elements, extending them to form a manta and a humming bird.

The sun on the inside of the manta is a symbol of positivity, energy and eternity (shaped by mountains for stability) flanked by a wave (change) that shapes a koru (new beginning).
This way we mixed opposites: fire and water, stability and change, to represent the totality of life, with a flower of hibiscus being the main element with manta and hummingbird to symbolize living every moment at its best, with enthusiasm and appreciating beauty in all things.
Flowers also are representative of femininity while birds on top left symbolize travels and watching the world from a higher perspective.
