The elephant is a symbol of the strength of the mind. Exhibiting noble gentleness, the precious elephant serves as a symbol of the calm majesty possessed by one who is on the right path. AND.it's an elephant. I knew I loved elephants for a reason :)!
I love the idea of having birds on me somewhere cos I feel like they represent freedom. Feather are beautiful and I love the use of colour. I have seen loads of similar feather to bird tattoos but always in black and white.
