Color Lotus Tattoo
This color lotus tattoo literally stole our hearts!!
Art works like this bring a lot of beauty, joy and enrichment in our lives.
Flowers often pick up religious and spiritual meanings because they rise from dirt and only show their beauty for a brief amount of time each year.
This Color Lotus Tattoo is no different from the rest of the blooms used for decorating and religious ceremonies.
Few flowers are as important to our cultures as the Lotus, and each culture ascribes a slightly different meaning to the flower. The Lotus is a delicate flower with many layered petals arrayed around a central core.
Known as the sacred Lotus in China, Bali, and other tropical countries in Asia, this plant’s scientific name is Nelumbo nucifera. It is the flower you see being used as the seat of Buddha and many Hindu deities too.
Getting a Lotus flower tattoo is reminder to stay humble and focus on developing inner peace. You can also develop more balance in your life with a tattoo of this flower because the eight petals represent all eight parts of a spiritual path. A color lotus tattoo sends a message of gracefulness and love to everyone that sees it.
Hinduism and Lotus Flower
Believe it or not, lotus flower tattoos are sacred things in the name of Hinduism religion. It is simply because such religion considers Padma as a sacred flower. Just in case you do not know, Padma is a kind of lotus flower. People who believe in Hinduism think that Brahma, Vishnu and some other deities have something to do with the lotus flower. With that being said, it is no longer surprising why people who practice Hinduism are fond of tattooing lotus flower on their bodies. According to Hinduism, lotus signifies purity and divine beauty, while its unfolding leaves represents spiritual awakening and expansion of a person’s soul.
Buddhism and Lotus Flower
People who are practicing Buddhism as their religion are also some of those tattoo lovers in the world who love tattooing lotus flowers on their body. It is simply because a lotus flower has a strong tie to the said religion. In Buddhism, the purity of one’s body, spirit, and mind is what a lotus flower represents for. In Buddhist lotus tattoos however, the flower is usually associated with eight beautiful petals that represents the Eightfold Path, which is the religion’s core tenet.
