Tree tattoos have significant symbolic meaning depending on the type of tattoo depicted. The tree tattoo in the picture is a representation of the mighty oak. It symbolizes strength and courage. The ancient Romans thought oak trees attracted lightening and thereby connected the oak tree to the sky god, Jupiter and his wife, Juno, the goddess of marriage. Thus, the oak is a symbol of conjugal fidelity and fulfillment. The oak tree was regarded by Socrates as an oracle tree. The Druids likewise ate acorns in preparation for prophesying. In addition, the Druids believed the leaves of the oak tree had the power to heal and renew strength. Other popular tree tattoos include the apple, cedar and ash trees. But, there are hundreds of other varieties available. When choosing a tree tattoo also think about the style the design is in and the possible style of other tattoos around it. For example, if you have a japanese tattoo motif going on then you might consider a cherry blossom tree. If you have a gothic or horror inspired design then you might want to consider a weeping willow or some similar design. Use your imagination and see where it takes you.
This girl has a nice tree tattoo running up the left side of her body. It’s well done and frankly it makes her look quite sexy. If you look close enough you can see the small heart on the tree with initial inside of it, no doubt the initials of this girl and her boyfriend, or girlfriend. And that is often the reason people use for getting a tattoo but I think that’s only an excuse. I think they would have gotten a tattoo anyway.
