This manta shaped Polynesian tattoo was prepared for Antonio and it includes three turtles representing the members of his family.

The two bigger turtles representing father and mother protect the smaller one in the middle representing their son, while the lizard below, which shapes the tail of the manta, is a symbol of protection and good luck.
Other protective elements are the all-seeing eye on the smaller turtle, the tiki on the tips of the wings, and ancestors near the family, which is surrounded by a sun made of mountains as a symbol of stability and joy.
The dot shows family as a fixed point, flax leaves symbolize family unity, and the chasing birds represent support to the loved ones.

The parents' turtles include a warrior, for the protector of the family, and a Marquesan cross, as a symbol of harmony and balance.

The image below helps identifying the individual elements within the tattoo:
