Dean requested this Polynesian half sleeve representing his life and what's important for him, including Tottenham Hotspur, whose logo is central on the shoulder together with all-seeing eye that protects the family shown right below, with the aid of the two tiki on the sides.

The couple is surrounded by three frangipani flowers for their children, and right below them on the sides there are some other impotant relatives and close friends.

The Marquesan cross below shows how family and friends give him harmony and balance, while the stepping stones at the bottom are all the things learnt, which come from the past. Flax leaves represent family unity.

Spearheads, shark teeth, and octopus tentacles symbolize strength, tenacity, and adaptability while waves symbolize change, and mountains the achieved stability.

Coconut buds and pandanus leaves symbolize prosperity.

A curiosity: the word "moataratua" used for a valiant warrior is the word used to designate a cock with a long spur.

The colored image below shows the main elements within the half sleeve:
