Hi,
Not sure if you still do the translations, I figured I would try. My brother says every time he goes to get food the lady laughs at him and the grandson states she won’t let him tell my brother what it means..lol

Thank you,
Lacy

Hey, I love your blog! This Tattoo is 20 years old now and I never checked the real meaning. Can you help figure it out?
Thank you so much,

subject: Hi

I’m curious about my tattoo I got wen I was a teenager. I was under the impression that it meant prosperity and of course I never thought to double check. Funny thing is I was out to dinner and a server brought up the mention that it looked to be about a boat. Now I would rly like to know what if anything it means. I hope you can help I cannot find anything anywhere.
