DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This tattoo was requested by Marco and it represents a change that brings him from his family of origin (ipu in the past) to creating his own (on top in the center of the sun: the couple, the flax leaves and the chess-like motif).

The centipede and spear heads symbolize the warrior facing adversities (the moray eel) to reach success and serenity (the sun and Marquesan cross towards the future).

The flower with seven petals represents a star and it symbolizes someone dear to the gods, as a symbol of protection.
It´s surrounded by a symbol of improvement and growth and by a lizard as a symbol of good luck.

A tiki in the center protects this new life and the manta ray on top symbolizes this new freedom.
