This kirituhi Maori style tattoo was designed for Solomon to integrate a matching existing part, and it has a hibiscus flower centrally in realistic style with shades to blend in with the thin lines of the rest while yet sticking out.

The hammerhead shark motif passing below it represents the warrior, tenacity and determination which he and his brother shared through all challenges (the ahuahu o Mataora motif).

Measure marks symbolize the things achieved together, while fish scales and teeth of taniwha are for protection.

The two korus represent two possible paths, with the bigger one representing his new start lead by the path to knowledge, with the fern leaves motif representing a hidden meaning.

The ritorito motif next to the hibiscus is a symbol of family union.

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