Another tattoo from Rate My Ink. No information listed regarding the artist though.

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, sexuality and sensuality. When Cronus castrated his father Uranus, the father of the gods, in a bid for power he threw what he had cut off into the sea. Aphrodite was born from the foam surrounding the mutilated genitals thus her receiving her name as "aphros" translates as "sea foam".
