If you desire to apply a tattoo that will emphasise your individuality, then the best choice for you can be a lotus tattoo. This flower is unique in every way: its appearance, the environment where it grows, and its meanings.
Lotus is a member of the Nelumbonaceae family. It mainly grows in the waters of slow flowing rivers. We want to tell you about lotus seeds, which spread and grow in a very special way.
First, let’s mention that hundreds of thousands of seeds from the lotus tree are poured into rivers and lakes every year, some of which become food for wildlife. The most interesting thing is that some lotus seeds grow immediately, and most of them go dormant, because the ponds often dry up and turn into silt. When floods break up the sediments where the seeds lie, new lotus blossoms begin to grow.
If conditions are favourable, lotus seeds can remain viable for many years. The oldest germination in the history of these seeds was in a dry lake in northeastern China. The seeds that came to life here were 1300 years old. It is this flowering that is the reason why the Chinese consider longevity to be the main symbol of the lotus.
This bloom also means to rise above any temptation and transform the essence, becoming more positive in any aspect.
Lotus Tattoo Ideas
The lotus tattoo is eye-catching even with the simplest outline. If you don’t like big and colourful ink, you can pick a tiny dark lotus tattoo. Selecting a location for this ink is quite easy as it takes up very little space.
On the other hand, it is important to decide the right place for the ink so that it is rather visible. And if you are a fan of multicoloured ink, then coloured lotus or watercolour tattoos can be ideal for you.
