Inspired by "Whanautanga"

Birth

The first version of this tattoo represents the meeting of two lives (ferns symbolize maturity, adults) that together generate a new life (the koru), which becomes the center of their lives. The fish hook symbolizes wealth and prosperity.

The second version is turtle-shaped, with waves patterns and tikis, to symbolize family, change and protection.

Requested by Mario.


THE POLYNESIAN TATTOO HANDBOOK
finally the book to understand and create Polynesian tattoos!

That´s a great idea and the book looks fab. I wish there were more animal outlines though... - TatFan, Denver
