DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Goran requested this half sleeve tattoo where the central part is represented by avwarrior mask, with its tongue stretched out as a challenge and the hammerhead shark motif to indicate tenacity and determination.

Prominent just below, the all-seeing eye is a symbol of protection against evil, like the two tiki at the sides of the armband.

The motif on top represents ancestors guarding from above while the spear heads closing the tattoo on the lower end symbolize courage and strength.

Other elements represent fertility (the ipu), balance (the Marquesan cross), adaptability (shark teeth).

That´s a great idea and the book looks fab. I wish there were more animal outlines though... - TatFan, Denver
