The Wave is symbolized as one of the strongest forces on earth. so strength for one. also if you read more into it, its about faith, a wave is you against mother nature, you cannot control it, you just have to put your faith into her.
I am in love with my tattoo. Because it does take the mind over the matter to push through something. This tattoo is very meaningful to me, and placed in a significant location on my body. It is small, but powerful to me.
