DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Bronte received in Tahuata by Fati a Marquesan tattoo representing him.
We now extended it to include part of his story so far.

The star on top represents a clear destination, and the birds are the voyage to reach it, whatever it may be, chasing it with determination and skill (the tiki arms).

There are elements symbolizing freedom and balance, Bronte´s life and voyages, and some are included to collect mana and provide protection.

"Punihele" is a Marquesan word meaning "longing to voyage".
