Sea King Arthur and His Polynesian Totem

These days Wenziren directed the DC film "Sea King" hit the theater, and all the people who have seen it are addicted to it. They were conquered by the big blue man.The film tells the story of Arthur, the heirs of the underwater kingdom,half human and half Atlantic, who never wanted to be king until he had to stand up and fight for the people.Let's take a look at this cool movie poster!
 Aquaman
So, you think I'm going to reveal the plot? How can it be! This big man, who is urged by his father every day because he has not finished tattooing in adulthood, and scolded by his grandfather, is still worth seeing in the cinema by yourself. In addition to the destined sea king Poseidon's trident, his cool tattoo also makes him look extraordinary.
 Aquaman
There are several different interpretations of what the tattoo actually depicts. According to Screen Rant, Momoa is covered with spearheads, which would mean showing a strong image to Aquaman's enemies. Another possibility is that the tattoo is similar to a fish scale, which is obviously associated with Aquaman's marine realm and the scale armor worn by the character in the comic book.
AQUAMAN
Although Momoa, the Neptune actor, had some tattoos that were not true when he played Arthur in the movie, he himself had many tattoos. And the director was inspired by his Hawaiian tattoos and incorporated them into his character design.

The most prominent tattoo of Moma, who plays Arthur the Sea King, is a row of black triangles that make his forearm more elegant.In a television interview, the Hawaiian actor said his tattoo was actually a tribute to his family god 'aumakua.In Hawaiian mythology, people think that 'aumakua is a dead ancestor and comes back to protect the family in different forms.The guardian of Momoa happens to be a shark.
AQUAMAN
This version of Aquaman is more than just a hero; he is the embodiment of Polynesian culture. Therefore, comic fans may not understand certain elements and tags of the design.

For Polynesians who have practiced tribal tattoo art since ancient times (including the ancestors of Half Hawaii's Momoa), the tattooed skin is the armor of the soldier's glory. Polynesians have different patterns and purposes, but there are still some common images and spiritual connections.
AQUAMAN
As one might expect, the image means communicating courage and combat effectiveness. The broader meaning can be simply the meaning of the warrior, even the bond of marine life. The position of the tattoo may be as important as the image itself, so the Aquaman is covered by the tattoo from the shoulder down.

Another most common image found in Polynesian tattoos is shark teeth, taking into account the high cultural connotations of fish on the island. Although most people today know the shark's lethality, the shark god Ka-moho-ali'i is particularly respected and is often considered to be the first group of people to lead Hawaii into these islands.
 Aquaman
Therefore, the triangular shark teeth tattoos are designed to convey fierceness and strength. These tattoos seem to spread across Aquaman's sides and chest, again suggesting his authority and responsibility to his people. Coincidentally, the armored wristband on Aquaman's left arm echoes the shark tooth tattoo that Momoa already has.
