35+ Beautiful Lotus Flower Tattoos

A flower floating above the depths of murky water is one of the most symbolic sights in the world. Despite the sinking gravity and muck within the liquid pool, a beautiful plant has emerged to face the sun. It is no wonder that so many cultures have put so much meaning into the lotus flower. Lotus flowers, also known as water lilies, are symbolic with Buddhism, Hinduism as well as with the ancient Egyptians. Buddhists, for example, believe that the lotus rising above watery depths is the perfect analogy for attaining enlightenment.

A lotus flower tattoo will lend itself to the whim of the artist; they can be drawn with or without color. Lotus flowers are usually drawn in an Asian style, but other forms of this tattoo have been observed, especially with watercolor and realist styles. Lotus flowers are perfect for someone who wants both symbolic and aesthetic beauty.
