This pec tattoo represents the bond between Alessandro and his daughter, symbolized by the warrior holding up his daughter inside of a sun.

The killer whale below, hanging over a row of capsized enata, symbolizes how he will always protect her from any enemy and danger.
The two chasing birds enforce the meaning of always being present when help is needed.

Spear heads along the left side symbolize the warrior who faces every trial and challenge with tenacity and determination, represented by the path of Kamehameha next to them, while the standing stones at the base are for the things learnt and achieved upon which he built his present life.

Waves represent life and change, the adze is for skill and dexterity and shark teeth are for adaptability and protection.
