A dedication to Hawaii, my favorite place to be, and the ocean, a world with the most interesting and diverse wild life on earth. A turtle to represent family. A manta ray to represent intelligence and power. A shark to represent self reliance, instinct, strength through independence, and being true to your gentle nature even with a negative reputation and ability to cause harm. A sea horse to represent loyalty, sensitivity to your surroundings and relationships, and light hearted nature. And the black and blue "ropes" to tie all of this into one human being.
