DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

This armband tattoo was designed recreating the main elements according to the Marquesan style.

The turtle in the middle, representing family, encloses a lion in its shell to represent respect, loyalty and tenacity, all necessary values in a family.
Below the turtle, a shark symbolizes adaptability and strength, a manaia and a tiki on the right protect the family and a lizard on the left brings good luck and health.
