We called this tattoo "hiranga", which means excellence, superiority, because of the motifs and designs used to make it: from the bottom to the top the gecko symbolizes underlying powers, the shark strength and adaptability and the manta elegance and beauty. They all merge to blend into the sun, symbol of eternity and deities. Korus symbolize rebirth and continuity, while the armband is made of traditional stylized lizards, which bring good luck.

This half sleeve was requested by Samuele.
