And as for tattoos and meaning, my most recent, a couple years old, is of a cicada. I've always loved cicadas, their songs are lush and sultry and make me think of slow, hot, summer nights. The meaning behind it, though, is that the cicada represents change and rebirth. I got it at a time when I was shedding old layers and becoming a truer form of me.
What's funny, when I moved to Nashville it was right before the "cicada invasion". Everyone was freaking out about it but I was overjoyed. I annoyed a few people with my exuberance over the coming onslaught.
