      Klingonkorra, great to hear from you again! That sucks. Great question. The crown is a symbol of royalty, wealth, authority, strength, and power. The crown is one of those tattoos that can work in many different ways. The crown tattoo can also represent Jesus, God, Christianity. The lion tattoo may also appear with a crown. Cherries with a crown, I would think it would be a symbol of feminine power. The cherry symbolizes femininity, sexuality, ect. That would be my guess. Now, your tattoo is much closer to the right meaning, it is his loss:)

      Me and my ex-boyfriend got ourselves a pair of cherry tattoos in a Rockabilly music festival in England... yes, I said ex. He found himself a 17 year old girl to screw me over with. But the cherry tattoos remain.. and they´re so big that they could be apples, not cherries. But I have one question, our cherries' design has a crown on top of the stem, any idea what that could symbolize?
