Inspired by "Mata hoata"

Brilliant eyes

"Mata hoata", or "brilliant eyes", is the name of a Marquesan tattoo element supposedly representing the face of a tiki or warrior, and we used it to name this design due to its similar features and meaning: protection.

This full back tattoo designed for Andy was styled to represent a warrior mask and it includes elements for his children and relating to his life.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking forward to creating a spectacular tattoo design... - Poulomi, Kolkata
