I have 7 tattoos and they all mean something! :)
Seagull on my collarbone to guide me through my journey, see problems ahead and help me come up with ways to tackle them, and to help me fly, because.. I can! (I got that one at the 50 pounds lost mark and it is a blessing everyday!).
I have one on my arm of winged creatures and flowers to show strength and beauty in delicate things. Also, to show flight and freedom.
I have a butterfly on my neck, same reason.
I have a calligraphy lotus on my left shower with a Japanese kanji for "warrior". Lotuses are very significant showing how something rises from the mud and dark into the light, strong, and amazing!
I also have a huge piece in the middle of my back that is Egyptian with many aspects and it stands for rebirth and renewal, justice, faith, family, strength, love, and peace. It's awesome!
Then I have stick figure best friends on my inner ankle that I got with one of my best friends. It was fun and cute and unlike any I've ever seen!
I have also the Serenity Prayer in Japanese on my inner calf. The Kanji all have butterfly wings.. it's neat!
And last but not least, I have an ankle wrap that has a book, frog, music note, butterfly, and monkey hanging off of it. Sort of like a charm bracelet but with live things and it's a vine. They all stand for something that is important in my life: I am a writer, frog is my other animal totem, I NEED music to breathe, butterfly (obvious from my others) and a monkey (which is hanging upside down right on my Achilles tendon.. OW!) is for my son. I love it!
What a nice thread! Your tattoo sounds gorgeous and what beautiful meaning :)
