This feminine manta tattoo for under the breast celebrates the beauty of life and a voyage that Chelsea made to Australia and Southeast Asia (the people around a campfire symbol from aboriginal culture and the unalome were included to symbolize them respectively).
The all-seeing eye is a symbol of protection, with friends around it, met during the voyage (molina, the flight of the albatross), and become family (the braid). The enata below the unalome shows support from loved ones along this path, and we placed mountains upside down around the unalome to symbolize the opposite of stability, the chaos through which perfection will come.
The frigate bird on top represents a change of perspective, reaching a higher view upon the world while waves symbolize both Chelsea´s love for water and surfing, and change.
The path of Kamehameha represents a challenging path, and the stepping stones are all the things learnt from it: every challenge, a lesson.
Centrally at the bottom, chasing birds within a sun symbolize the joy that comes from having and giving support to the loved ones.
The hammerhead shark symbolizes warrior spirit, tenacity and determination, while the lizard is a symbol of protection, health, and good luck.
Shark teeth bring protection in water, and they are a symbol of adaptability and strength, while fish symbolize prosperity.
