this is my most meaningful tattoo. my grandma passed away in 2011, and this is all for her. she loved elephants and roses. my grandma died of cancer. it started in her lungs and spread to her brain. we found out in november and she died in december. i think of her every day, and the way i chose to always remember her was to get a tattoo about her. cancer sucks, but everything happens for a reason.
the elephant represents her, happiness, strength, and luck. the red rose represents love, courage, and respect. lavender is the general cancer awareness color. also, when an elephant holds its trunk down, it’s a sign of protection.
