    Loose translation is "I am the river, the river is me", it's part of a Whanganui iwi whakatauki (proverb), "I rere kau mai te awa nui mai te kahui maunga ki Tangaroa, ko au te awa, ko te awa ko au" (I think), "As I soar down the wide river from the might mountains to the sea, I am the river, the river is me".

    I'm a water baby through and through, this whakatauki has always been MINE.

    If I was to ever get a tattoo, I'd get that tattoo'd in Arabic.

    A young lady that wants to get a tattoo that actually means something significant - rather than getting a tramp stamp because they look cool

    Laughing I doubt I'll ever get it, but if I was to ever get one, that would be it.
