This thigh tattoo was designed for Scott to represent his family and the protection he gives them.

On the turtle shell the couple protects their children (with their initials next to them), while a manta and a star were added as symbols of freedom, beauty, and of the importance they have for him.
In front of the turtle, the Marquesan cross within the sun symbolizes eternity, joy and balance, while the fish hooks in the front flippers symbolize prosperity and abundance.

The row of birds in the body of the shark represents voyages, and the enata represent all the friends he met during his voyages, who are close to the family.

The lo kahi symbol represents union between the world of men, of spirits, and nature, and it symbolizes how everything and everyone is connected, and how these worlds should always keep in balance.
The spearheads and the shark teeth represent the warrior, tenacity and adaptability, while mountains and waves are symbols of stability and change.
