This sea turtle, symbolizing the voyager, is made of Maori and Samoan inspired motifs, and the inner triple twist design itself is a Maori symbol that represents the meeting of two different cultures, the union of two peoples. Stylized shark teeth symbolize strength and adaptability.

Frangipanis, the flowers inside this design, are typical in tropical areas, and particularly on the Pacific islands, and they mean shelter, protection.

 I found this in google images, loved the look of it, and saved it as a possible first tat to my phone, where I kept looking at it and imagining it on my calf. Later, I got around to finding it here with the description, and it´s spot-on ME. This is going to be my beautiful tat. :)))
