DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This tattoo was requested by Anton to cover his arm and it represents his fighting spirit.

The path of Kamehameha represents the difficult path he´s taken from initial difficulties (the moray eel at the lower end) to watching the world from a higher perspective (the row of birds extending onto the top; two of them are separated from the others for help to the dear ones).

The row of spear heads symbolizes the warrior and the stylized centipede enclosing coconut leaves is a symbol for his fighting spirit.
Cononut leaves and fish represent the reached prosperity while the manta in the center symbolizes the freedom gained (it is shaped by a stylized tiki and by an all-seeing eye for protection).

The row of flax leaves on the left symbolizes family, guarded above by two ancestors.
