it's about time

to know what my tattoos mean...

the fleur de lis: regality / rebirth / renewal
-an abstraction of the french lily, the fleur de lis was created for a french royal family
and to this day embodies regality
-also viewed as a symbol of the holy family (st joseph, the virgin mary and jesus)

anchor: sign of stability, symbol of hope
-to early xians, hidden symbol for the cross (in early christianity)
-a strong foundation, reminder to stay grounded/steadfast

next tat: an eye of horus?
meaning: strength / light / reason
-the right eye of the egyptian god horus represents the sun and the sun god (ra)
as well as masculine energy (?), solar power and reason +
healing properties and powers of protection
