So, because I have 0.00 chill, I took @percyyoulittleshit ‘s idea for Jason Momoa as Hawaiian Poseidon and a young Momoa as Percy Jackson, did my research for accurate Hawaiian and Polynesian tattoos and I made ^THIS^; Percy Jackson the Hawaiian.
Geckos are a symbol of divinity, as gods often take the form of geckos to speak to mortals. The dolphin is a common symbol of Poseidon. The shark-tooth motif symbolizes protection, guidance, and adaptability. The spear motif symbolizes warriors. The braid motif represents connections to the past through ancestry. The fish-scale motif is particular to Hawaii and represents protection.
Do you know how hard it is to find a GOOD resource for non-Western symbolism?
