This Polynesian half sleeve tattoo was designed for Piermarco so as to include a tattoo that we had previously designed for him, which represented a scorpion integrated to a fern leaf with some letters and elements related to the warrior (spearheads and octopus tentacles).

The scorpion protects the family (Tāmaru means "protection"), represented by the turtle, with the help of the two tiki on the sides.
The flax leaves and braids symbolize union and the sun with the Marquesan cross represents joy and balance.
The two birds chasing each other symbolize the help always granted to the loved ones.

Few people near the central part represent his closest friends.

The path of Kamehameha shows a difficult path that leads to prosperity (fish) and stability (mountains), with achieved successes represented by the stepping stones at the base.

The colored image below highlights the individual elements within the tattoo:
