DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Adinkra symbols were initially used to decorate fabrics and garments, but their inner beauty makes them perfect as tattoos as well.

FUNTUNFUNEFU DENKYEMFUNEFU is the perfect example of how a little symbol can hide a much greater meaning: its translation is "siamese crocodiles" and its related meaning is:

"unity in diversity, democracy", because since the two crocodiles share one single stomach, if a crocodile eats, everyone eats, and none of them survives without the other. That´s how democracy should work, where all the people are equal and depend one on each other.
