DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Jennifer requested this tattoo in memory of her granma.
Its shape recalls a manta to symbolize beauty and freedom, peace.

The tiki inside the sun represents her granma (holding a ipu in its hands, a symbol of ancestors and fertility) while the sun itself is a symbol of eternity and positivity.
Behind them, a cross made of spear heads symbolizes faith and strength.

Just below, some motifs shape two hearts to symbolize their reciprocal love winning over any change (waves on their sides).

The korus inside the waves symbolize every new start.
