This Polynesian tattoo designed for the shoulder follows the lines of the muscles recalling the shape of a seashell as a symbol of intimacy, love, and prosperity.

We placed a gecko as the central element, being a symbol of health and good luck, and added a turtle on a side as a symbol of family.
Within the turtle shell, the two Adinkra symbols represent precious treasure and adoration, while the braid is a symbol of union.

The koru is a symbol of life, mountains symbolize stability, and shark teeth adaptability and protection.

The colored legenda below helps identifying the main elements within the tattoo:
