The first version of this tattoo represents the meeting of two lives (ferns symbolize maturity, adults) that together generate a new life (the koru), which becomes the center of their lives. The fish hook symbolizes wealth and prosperity.

The second version is turtle-shaped, with waves patterns and tikis, to symbolize family, change and protection.

Requested by Mario.

 This is one of the best designs I´ve seen. I only wish I could figure out a good way to incorporate a twist for being apart and coming back together. Any ideas?
