Matching Tattoos

This is the tattoo I share with my best friend. We came up with the design when I visited in her California in 2010. 
The meaning is kind of hard to explain. Basically, the anchor symbolizes our friendship. One of the definitions is "a central cohesive source of support and stability..." and that's what we've been for each other throughout the years. We've helped each other through the lowest points in our life and shared some of the most joyous events. As things have changed, our friendship has remained the same. So that's the anchor and it starts turning into birds. The birds symbolize the fact that we're so far apart, distance wise, but still part of the anchor. Make sense? So we created it, both fell in love with the design and decided to get it. We couldn't make it work before I left California, but decided we'd still get it individually when we could.We both have them now and eventually (hopefully one day soon!) we'll get a picture of them side by side.
