DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This Maori styled half sleeve was requested by Alessio.

The turtles in the middle symbolize family, and the two tikis were placed on both sides to protect them from every direction, and together with the two fish hooks they symbolize fertility and prosperity.

The sun and shark teeth motifs recall the idea of prosperity, strength and adaptability.

Inside the armband we wrote a maorigram saying "ALESSIO" (here at TT we call maorigrams those writings hidden in Maori motifs, following their lines and styles).

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
