Inked for Friday, August 5, 2011

Name: Zondra Awong

Hometown: Wailua

Zondra has two tattoos — one on her back, and the other is on her leg. The tattoo on her back is a turtle with her daughter’s name, Kainehe, which means whispering sea breeze. The tattoo on her leg represents her family’s genealogy. The shark and turtle is her family’s ‘aumakua. She also included a plumeria in the design, which is her favorite flower. Zondra drew both of her tattoos freehand and had her friend apply the ink.
