Sean faces dangers every day, and he asked for a half sleeve to represent his personality, family and protection.

The warrior on the shoulder represents Sean, the fighter, and valiance. Tikis on the two sides are there to protect him and the manaia above guards over him and his family (the turtle). More protection to the family comes from the all-seeing eye on its shell, and the sun motifs symbolize glory and joy. The shark symbolizes adaptability and strength and the koi indicates that kind of tenacity that never gives up, and which will bring him wealth (the fish hook forming the koi´s tail and the one on the neck of the warrior).

[TT: we never use traditional motifs which could be considered offensive when worn by a non native. Our designs are modern interpretations of traditional styles and want to be a tribute to Oceanic beautiful traditions and cultures]
