Lion Statue, Loggia dei Lanzi, Piazza della Signoria, Florence
I'm thinking for the center below the top of my hand something like this would tie on perfect. A lion that looks like wood but the mane slowly will start to turn into leaves which eventually will start to make flowers and flow into my other tattoos on my arm. Perfect!
The lion watches over the entrances to the home - the door, windows, and any opening. Its protection is a symbol of potential if needed, and we encourage a calm lion to welcome visitors.
