Cicadas are a sacred animal in Chinese and Egyptian culture. They symbolize resurrection and rebirth from the dead, longevity, and the sirens of the insect world. I'm hoping to make this my next tattoo very soon.
The "Dragon and Phoenix" - Chinese symbol of the Emperor and Empress or a husband and wife. My wife Yan's actual handwriting on the scroll translates to "Our hearts together forever". This was my 50th birthday present from Yan.
