This is another fine example of Maori Moko tattoo art. Maori tattoo isn't just pretty and intricate designs. It is a language in art that can express a persons social standing in their culture, convey marital status and represent things/persons important to them, etc. The Flickr page says this tattoo represents the owner's three children. To learn more about Maori tattoos visit this previous post.
