Elliot Baobab family tattoo flash

This baobab tattoo was prepared for Elliott using African motifs and elements from Cameroon, Nigeria, Benin, and it is about his family.

It has the names of his family members in Amharic composing two branches of the tree, and both names have symbols for blessing (Nyame Nti), loyalty (Agyin Dawuru), and abundance (Bese Saka) next to them.

Nsa Ko Na Nsa Aba symbolizes cooperation in the family while Elliott is portrayed in the trunk as the warrior supporting family (Kumi Jose Kan).
