DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Vonu is the Fijian word designating the turtle and giving the name to this tattoo requested by Roberta.

The left back fin is a moray eel and the right one a wave to represent a difficult period and a change.
The shell has a tiki hand protecting her life to come represented by the sun with a frangipani flower in the center symbolizing joy, femininity and safe shelter.

Birds on the right front fin indicate this voyage that takes her watching the world from a higher perspective and help always granted by the dear ones while the head is shaped by a koru for this new beginning.
