DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

From bottom to top, this tattoo requested by Barbara draws the path that takes her from a hard moment (the moray eel next to an enata) to find a new balance.

The tiki at the bottom, with a maorigrammed M nearby, protects this path.

The main part symbolizes her life, with good moments all along the way (the flowers of frangipani) leading to a rebirth (the koru shape, the spiral on top) and to happyness (the flower of hibiscus).

Birds represent this voyage that takes her watching everything from a higher perspective while a lizard inside the koru symbolizes good luck and protects this new path.
