I might be a little obsessed with getting a lotus tattoo, the lotus is somewhat like the Western equivalent of a rose “whats a rose without a few thorns” its a beautiful flower that grows up from swampy and muddy soils, and in buddhism it represents progress of the soul. We all have mud that we have to push through before we reach the surface, and once we do its beautiful, just like the blossom of a lotus. Also, the progression of the soul resonates with me in its entirety.I’ve waited to get a tattoo as I wanted it to be original and have a deep meaning for me, since it will be on my body for the rest of my life.
I definitely want something along the lines and scale of this one, I love the shading and definitely love that its mostly black with light shadings of color near the top, but I do plan to make it as original as possible when the time comes that I will get my own!
