DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

The main elements of this tattoo requested by Rabih are a hammerhead shark and a turtle: tenacity, determination and strength to face every challenge, and family.
The all seeing eye is central in the tattoo to keep enemies away.

The hammerhead shark has protected family from every adversity taking it to success (the sun on top) thanks to his fighting spirit (spear heads and centipede).

Several motifs create a safe zone around the turtle: the braid for union, shark teeth for protection and adaptability, a lizard for good luck, spear heads.

On the left of the shark the path of Kamehameha and moray eels show a difficult path while on the right of the shark birds and fish represent the voyage ending with prosperity, with standing stones below to symbolize the lessons learnt along the way

A sea shell for faithful love completes the shark tail
