I have always loved the Lotus Flower...I have always loved tattoos. So when I first saw the combination of the two..I fell in tattoo love. For me the symbolism of the lotus flower is something that touched my often walled up heart. I can't adequately put into words the symbolism so I shall share someone else's words with you...

"...The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the waters surface continually moving towards the light. Once it come to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower..." 

For the rest of the article click! However, for religious symbolism and meanings a simple net search will provide you with many interpretations.

So to the inspiration for this posting was simply the photo below. It came up on a Pinterest feed and I was enchanted with it immediately. I found it quite beautiful..what do you think?

I have to say I love everything about this tattoo. The placement draping across the lower back is great..the colours so vibrant and the design intense..all things that a good fire lotus design should be. I would love this tattoo...

Tattoos don't have to be large to have an impact. The placement of this small lotus design is maybe not where I would have it done it can cause a headache when trying to design tattoos to go around it later on. But on an ankle or wrist...or anywhere else that can take a small tattoo would be perfect. So any size works, eh?

Radiohead ~ Lotus Flower
I'm not the biggest Radiohead fan..well actually I've only ever liked the song Creep. But when doing this post I put in a search for Lotus songs and this one came up. The lyric to it is..crikey I've over used this word lately..but they are simply beautiful. And the video is really interesting. But anyway..Lotus postings complete with lotus Right back to the tattoos, eh?
