Mario is a surfer, and a fan of the old school 10´6 board that is the subject of this tattoo he requested.

The tiki in the middle is a symbol of protection, and the three fingers represent balance between sky, earth and water (motifs of the wind and sun are also present above the tiki, whereas the waves motifs run all along the profile of the surfboard).

The fish hook, or matau, is a symbol of prosperity, and the turtle symbolizes here the traveller.

 I liked this tattoo so much i got it done on my leg 2 weeks ago! It is just what i was looking for! My artist was amazed by the design and loved putting it on me! I want to add my picture of it but i dont know how to add it! I want to incorporat aspects from this piece in a back piece so hope to figure it out and get it done!
