This small Polynesian tattoo for the ankle was prepared for Ashley, and it is shaped to have three circular parts recalling a triple twist (meeting of cultures), with a spiral on the ankle bone, a sun above it, and another spiral with a koru on top.

The birds symbolize voyages, with waves and a palm leaf to represent the ocean and the islands, and a fish hook for prosperity.

The frangipani symbolizes femininity, with a leaf shaped by "te ha" (breath of life), surrounded by the sun for joy, with fish for prosperity and the koru for a new start.

The manta (freedom) has a star next to it for its importance and the seashell symbolizes love.

The image below helps identifying the individual elements within the tattoo:
