DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This ankle tattoo was prepared for Martin, who always lived by the sea and has a strong passion for water and water sports.

A surfin' tiki rides the waves on a spear heads surfboard representing the warrior and protection while waves and spear heads shape a hammerhead shark symbolizing tenacity and strength, sociality.

A second wave made of birds symbolizes voyages and watching the world from a higher perspective (the 4 birds also represent the 4 members of his family, always there to help each other) while the manta represents freedom, peace and serenity.

Shark teeth are for protection in the water, fish and fish hook symbolize prosperity.
