    No, I would use "to". Or you could say "Does your tattoo have a particular meaning?"

    I'm not sure about "of". We can say: "Can you explain to me the meaning of this sentence?" Is it possible to use "of" in this context?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    I find "Is there a meaning of your tattoo?" unnatural though. "What is the meaning of your tattoo?" works.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
