Saturday’s tat. Finished this part of his chest piece on Saturday. The finished tattoo will eventually encompass his shoulder and continue down around the nipple. When all is said and done, I will post a link with the breakdown. This tattoo
is heavily based on the Maori pounamu, or greenstone carving. This particular design incorporates three koru; each serving to represent mother, father and child, respectively. Along the outer edge of each specific node are Ana’ole motifs that correlate with the traits of those individuals. For example, mother> ohia lehua blossoms, father> kanaloa, child> hulu pueo. The center motif is Tibetan calligraphy and is the sound essence of primordial wisdom’s male embodiment.
This was done with modern tattoo machines and sealed with the ta and ku’au.
Because this tattoo was started a week before, the outer edge is still healing. Woot!maori/ana'ole chest
