Caryl Cunningham designed it and tattooed me. Inanna is an ancient Sumerian goddess. Here is a little bit about her:
"At each gate Inanna was required to shed a piece of her identity—a possession that symbolized an important role or relationship in her life, a part of her identity, the face she showed to others. One of the important lessons of the goddess Inanna is that, if we are to remain in touch with our true selves, we must divest ourselves of our attachments to the "outer world" and travel inward."
