The path of Kamehameha cutting diagonally through this sleeve tattoo represents a difficult path full of adversities that symbolically splits here the past life of Sergio, who requested this tattoo, from his present one.

The hammerhead shark represents here tenacity, strength, the fighter.
The aum symbol stands for yoga, which allowed him to start this new life (koru are for the new beginning and waves are for change).
The sun is for positivity and joy, the Marquesan cross symbolizes this newly reached balance and the manta in front of the hammerhead shark represents the acquired freedom.

The warrior, the strength for fighting adversities, is also represented by the row of spear heads along the path.

The turtle right above the aum symbolizes a united family (the braid), the fish hook is for prosperity and the te ha is the vital breath.

On top, we placed a man with a net surrounded by a sun to symbolize how sharing and cooperating with all men (the enata) can be a source of happyness for mankind.
