The main shape of this tattoo requested by Gabi resembles a whale as it´s a symbol for care and nurturing.
A wolf head was stylized in the tail as a symbol for loyalty and there is a seashell next to it to symbolize love and safe shelter, intimacy, protected by the manaia forming the other tip of the whale tail.

The whale tail is also the tail of a dolphin which has a triskell inside its body.
The dolphin symbolized playfulness, joy and friendship while the triskell represents eternity and balancing elements.

The two chasing birds symbolize help granted to the dear one and the fin made of braid ends into a sun to represent union that gives joy and lasts forever. Shark teeth are for adaptability.

A stylized butterfly with an infinity sign nearby was used to represent the eternity of all this.

The head of the whale is made of a manta (beauty, freedom, elegance) and a tiki watches towards the future for protection.
