Filipino, Hawaiian and Baybayin

This tattoo is a tribute of Zhamhyre from Las Vegas to his Filipino culture and as well as to the country where he grew up, Hawaii. The Filipino symbols are the 3 stars, sun and the Philippine flag while the Hawaiian symbol is the island overlapping the sun. The Baybayin at the middle means “Rest in peace papa” which he had after his father passed away.
