In nature, the lotus flower is an aquatic plant native to Asia, famous for its use as an ornament and for its longevity – did you know that its seeds can germinate for up to 13 centuries?
The incredible aesthetic of the lotus flower, full of petals and mysticism, has already inspired the architecture of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, located in Dubai. See how to make the magic of this flower a beautiful mark on your body.
The meaning of the lotus flower
The lotus flower is above all related to life. Because it is a flower that is born from the mud, from the swamp, it also symbolizes overcoming, strength, the ability to go through difficulties and see the positive side of the situation. In Buddhism, it is also associated with purity and spiritual awakening, as it is born perfectly from an unexpected place.
Where to tattoo the design?
According to tattoo artist Alexandre Wildmann, from the Electric Traditional Tattoo studio, in São Paulo, there is no specific place on the body to tattoo the lotus flower.
“The best space to tattoo any type of design, regardless of what it is, is that it has a good aesthetic and values the area of the body. An aesthetically perfect design can be beautiful without getting attached to the image,” he explains.
The dermopigmentation artist Gabriel Ferreira, from Kauai Studio, also believes that it does not matter where the body is, but that the tattoo is done with great competence: “There is no better place to tattoo a particular design, but the sensitivity and perception of the artist to make it fit and flow with everyone’s body. That’s why the advice is always worth it: look for a good tattoo artist, get to know his work, get to know the studio and the place where he works. This is all a determining factor for you to have a beautiful and tasteful work, which you will want to show to everyone”.
