A Chinese tattoo in Canada

Saw a lot of Chinese tattoos during our two months in North America this summer. Some were good, some were legible but obviously drawn by a non-Chinese, some were wrong but guessable.

This is the tattoo of one of the kids’ nature program instructors at the provincial park we camped at in B.C. (super nice guy, taught our daughter about climate change and bears). Can anyone help me out with the middle character?

He said it’s supposed to be “courage” 勇气 (勇氣), “achievement” , and “peace of mind” or “comfort” 安心,but all I can find for 芸 is that it’s a Japanese variant of (skill, art). Anyone got any better ideas?
