Lotus Tattoos

Lotus tattoos first became famous in the east because of this flower’s many meanings and representations. But as time progressed, they became highly venerated in western cultures as well. It was in Ancient Egypt when lotuses became famous, because they were used in many myths and epics.Egyptians praised them as they were related to the mighty Nile River. As for Buddhists, tattoos of lotuses represented art and spirituality. The flowers’ ability to rise from the dark, murky waters have made them symbols of rebirth and reawakening. While lotus tattoos are generally seen as depictions of resurgence, the meanings can vary depending on the color of the ink used. Red lotuses symbolize purity of the heart, love and passion, while pink lotuses represent deities. The pink variations are considered the most perfect of all. Lotus tattoos in the color blue, on the other hand, denote knowledge and wisdom.

Nowadays, this flower is associated with break-ups and ended relationships.While this design is heralded as very feminine, they can be applied to men as well with a few tweaks and additions (flames or skulls, for example) here and there. As for females, adding hearts, stars and other flowers can make their tattoos of lotuses look more beautiful. Because they can be drawn big or small, lotus tattoos are suitable for any person, given their positive meanings and symbolism.
