DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Liam sent us the image of a tattoo asking us to modify it for him. We added inside it the lizard (in the middle of the turtle´s shell) and the sharks (around the turtle), and we called it "whakangungu", which means protection, because the manta itself, the turtle and the sharks have a value of protection over the sea, and the tikis looking to the right and to the left are there to protect from every side.

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