Two of Ed Garcia Conde's three tattoos

Description

Mr. Garcia Conde's tattoos are an homage to his roots in Puerto Rico. The one on the left is a Coqui frog symbol. The frog is native to Puerto Rico and symbolizes anything Puerto Rican. The one on the right is a Taino symbol of the sun. The Puerto Ricans believed that when the sun rose, it came from the cave Cacique Mautiatibuel, who is the Lord of the Dawn.
