10 Lotus Flower Tattoo Design Ideas

Lotus Flower TattooLotus flower tattoos are beautiful, but that's because the flower itself is perfection. A simple tattoo of a lotus flower is really all you need, but the lotus flower also has numerous meanings. It is surrounded in religious beliefs from many cultures and parts of the world. Here is a look at the different meanings, and legends, about the lotus flower and how you can incorporate them into a Lotus Flower Tattoo design.

Lotus Flower Tattoo design #1: Perfection. The lotus flower as eight petals, and comes in a few colors. A pure lotus flower is white or pink, while water lilies come in a variety of colors. The lotus flower blooms in the mud and wet, but is never tainted. The petals are all symmetrical. The lotus flower is the favorite flower of the gods. If you think you are perfect, and a favorite of the gods, go ahead and get a Lotus Flower Tattoo and tell the world how perfect you are.

Lotus flower tattoo design #2: The divine vulva. Yes, you read that right. Many religions and cultures believe that the gods were born from the lotus flower. The gods, in turn, created everything else. The lotus flower is the source, and brought life to the world. If you are brave, get a lotus flower tattoo design right on your baby birthing parts. or, think about a lotus flower with a baby wrapped in its petals.

Lotus flower tattoo design #3: The doorway to the universe. This lotus flower meaning is similar to the "divine vulva", but does not need to be sexual in nature. Create a tattoo design that combines spirituality with the cosmos. Within the middle of the lotus flower have the stars, moon, and planets. The perfect petals of the lotus flower would be fanned out around that galaxy. This tattoo would combine two differing beliefs, religion and science, but shows that they can be interconnected.

Lotus flower tattoo design #4: Lord Vishnu. Out of Vishnu's belly button grew a lotus flower, and from it came a child. The lotus flower is heavily steeped in creation myths. Place a lotus flower tattoo on your stomach, with the center of the lotus flower your navel. This is perfect as the umbilical cord sustains life in the womb, and adding the lotus flower to that special belly button gives it even more meaning about life.

Lotus flower tattoo design #5: Acceptance or non-acceptance of divinity. Use this meaning to create a duel tattoo design. When the lotus flower is open to the sun, that represents the human soul opened to divinity and the existence and faith in the gods. If the lotus flower is closed to the sun, the human soul is not quite ready but still has potential. A double tattoo design would be of one lotus flower open to the sun placed above it. The second lotus flower would be closed to the sun. You can place them one on each hand, leg, shoulder blade, etc.

Lotus flower tattoo design #6: Death and enlightenment. The lotus flower can represent enlightenment. The ultimate goal of enlightenment is to achieve immortality. It is believed that the seven Chakras crown on the skull by a lotus flower. There are a few tattoo designs with this idea. How about a tattoo of a lotus flower on the top of your bald head? Or a tattoo of a meditating person with a lotus flower on their head. An even deeper tattoo design would be a skull, the symbol of death, with a lotus flower growing from the top. There should be roots, to show that the flower grows. This could mean that although the body is dead, the soul lives on.

Lotus flower tattoo design #7: The resting place of the soul. Some religions believe the soul rests in the heart, within a lotus. Create a tattoo of a heart with a lotus within it. or, go the other way, and create a lotus with a heart center. they would both represent the soul. Go even simpler and place a lotus flower tattoo over your heart on your chest.

Lotus flower tattoo design #8: The lotus as the sun/resurrection and rebirth. Egyptian cultures see the lotus flower as the sun. During the day, the lotus flower is open. At night, the petals are closed. This represents rebirth, resurrection, and eternal life. Create a double tattoo design using the lotus flower as the sun. One tattoo would be of the lotus open, its petals as the sun's rays. Although not a natural color for a lotus, it sun be orange, red, and yellow, representing the sun. The second tattoo would be of the lotus flower closed. You could even make it blue, to represent the moon. Place stars around it to show that it is night.
