DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

In the center of this tattoo there is a turtle (family) whose front flippers are two tikis protecting it from all sides.
Between the two tikis we placed the letters R and M, from the names of Ruggero, who requested this tattoo, and of his son, with flax leaves below (family union and a symbol of life continuing in our children).

The back flippers are a fish hook (prosperity) and a tiki hand (protection).

Above the turtle, a series of birds chasing each other (voyages and the help granted to the dear ones) shape a manta (freedom) while waves are symbolic for the sea.
