DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

We prepared for Mauro this tattoo where waves at the base represent the change that led to the birth of his new family (the turtle with G and M on the shell), with its back flippers shaped by fish hooks as a wish for prosperity and abundance.

Palm trees symbolize their honeymoon in Polynesia and the leaves recall sea shells to symbolize intimacy, love and safe shelter, up to the sun which is a symbol of positivity and eternity while the hammerhead shark represents tenacity and strength protecting their union (a second sun made of shark teeth symbolizes adaptability and protection).

Chasing birds symbolize the help they´ll always grant to each other.

THE POLYNESIAN TATTOO HANDBOOK
finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

I have skimmed through the book and become so very interested in the contents... Very good and suitable for a self-education in Tattoo-ology! - Anne, London
