My most recent tattoo. Buddhist "hum" symbol; cleanses of evil to help on the path to enlightenment Thinking this can be on my side down rib cage.

The humming bird, like all birds, some more and some less, symbolizes freedom, but it also has another meaning: past and future are not as important as the present is, it's important to live now, sipping the nectar of life.  The lotus flower.. is a symbol of Buddhism, perfection and letting go of things that weigh you down by only letting the blissfulness of the present fill your thoughts.  "Carpe Diem".

Not a day goes by that I don't think of my little Nana!!  The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life's sweetest creation!!!

Jodi   I want this tattoo, like yesterday. The two birds will always be together, lovingly looking out for one another.

Kente cloth was develoed by the Akan people of West Africa.  Many of Akan live in Ghana and Ivory Coast today. Traditionally the cloths were for sacred and royal occassions. They feature bold designs and bright colors, each of which bears meaning. For example, black signifies maturity and strong spiritual energy.

I LOVE the little hummingbirds flying out of this feather!  Hummingbirds are said to represent lightness of being - perfect!
