DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

"Ohana" means in Hawaiian language "Family" intended as a group of dear people, not necessarily akin. Relatives, friends and anyone who is dear and loved can be included in the Hawaiian concept of family.

This tattoo wants to call protection and friendship (dolphins) and good luck (lizard) upon the bearer's family (turtle) which is placed in the center of everything, matched with a Tiki indicating fertility and surrounded by Korus (fern shoots = rebirth). The Ray itself indicates wisdom and the whole tattoo design tells that a wise and lucky life revolves around true friendships, renewed day after day.
