Lotus flower tattoos are one o the purest of tattoo designs. Its meaning in various cultures and association with spiritual and celestial entities has earnt it the reputation of being a holy flower. Lotus flower tattoos besides their meaning, look stunning as a tattoo design and evoke feelings of triumph, freshness, subtlety, inner peace and clarity of mind

Lotus Flower Tattoo In Buddhism And Hinduism


One of the strongest associations with the lotus flower is that of Buddhism. Reigning as one of the most beautiful of flowers, the lotus is born out of dirty murky waters, and it is this environment that gives rise to the lotus’s first and most literal connotation: rising and blossoming above the murky depths to achieve enlightenment. Enlightenment was considered the ultimate destination for all Buddhists and so it s no wonder then that the lotus is held as the most esteemed symbols in Buddhism.

The second meaning of the lotus flower is that of purification and highlights the importance of the mud. The mud is said to represent the world in which humans are born into, a world where there is suffering. This suffering is important as it is this suffering that makes us wiser, stronger and resistant human beings, who are able to fight off evil thoughts and actions. The lotus flower shows us that when we banish such thoughts we are able to achieve a state of pureness, a state where only beauty and goodness prevails.

A lotus tattoo incorporates these ideals and can push its wearer to constantly choose good over bad, and strive to achieve a state of pureness and enlightenment.

In Hinduism the lotus flower is closely associated with prominent Hindu gods and goddesses. The goddess of prosperity, Laxmi , sits atop of a lotus flower and the lotus flower in tern represents prosperity and good fortune.

The Lotus Flower Tattoo And Triumph

Many people will also opt for a lotus tattoo as it demonstrates the perfect example of a triumph. A lotus flower in many respects represents the underdog who despite belonging to a particular background, rises above that to better himself. ‘It’s not where you’re from its where you’re going’ a popularized term illustrates this idea perfectly.

A lotus tattoo can serve to constantly remind you that your background does not have to dictate your future, it does not have to limit what you can and cannot do. Have a strong will and focused goals and you too shall bloom and blossom just like your lotus tattoo.
