DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Despite its small size, this simple Polynesian style tattoo encompasses great meaning, with a frigate bird (a messanger from the gods) in the center of a sun to represent energy coming from a higher source that gives life to everything.

The left wing is made of waves to represent the sea, the right wing has a frangipani flower, pandanus leaves and mountains to represent the land and the bird itself represents air.
The tail includes a human and symbols representing the footprints of the ancestors to connect present and past, while the lokahi symbol in the middle represents unity, with the three triangles symbolizing the realms of man, nature, and spirits, and the empty space in the middle symbolizing the light of creation coming through darkness.

The colored legenda below helps identifying the main elements within the tattoo:

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