I've had a panther on my chest for about 18 years. Would like to get an upper arm, half chest, and half back tat, and would like it to conceal the panther if possible as its not really my thing anymore. Have been considering a traditional Celtic design, not one of these modern representations that everyone is wearing. Have discovered my Celtic totem animal (and Celtic horoscope animal) is the wolf so will try some sort of animorphic design leading into Celtic symbols. I thought about putting a Celtic cross somewhere in the design and will add my two daughters initials around the four corners of it.
Have always intended to get a Warriors logo somewhere and just add the year each time we win the Premiership, but I'm not sure where I want it.
I might get the Warriors logo at the same time, but not sure if I'll do it this year or next year.
The story behind it is, If you know me & my family we are very passionate warriors fans, so the warriors tiki is the centerpiece of the tattoo.
With the polynesian influence i was born and rasied in South Auckland and attended a heavily based polynesian school Otahuhu College.
Throughout my years in South Auckland, the culture, language, food music etc has always been apart of my everyday life.
If it was not for the pacific island influence in my upbringing at school, I would not be the person i am today.
The maori aspect symbolises the small amount of blood line that traces back to Nga Puhi. Even thou it not a direct symbol of Nga Puhi it is just my touch.
