The front flippers of this Polynesian turtle tattoo prepared for Markus are shaped by two tiki to protect his family in the middle, and they include fish hooks for prosperity, while the back flippers are spearheads representing his willingness to fight for them.
The couple is in the middle (with a frangipani next to her), and the names of their sons were included on their sides as maorigrams.

The people close to the family represent friends, with flax leaves (family unity) and braids enclosing all of them as a symbol of union and bond.

The Marquesan cross within the sun symbolizes that success comes with harmony, and the star marks it as a fixed point, with a frigate bird next to it to symbolize a higher perspective upon life.

The colored image below shows the main elements within the tattoo:
