Perhaps one of the most beautiful and easily recognizable flowers is the Cherry Blossom. These small pink flowers have a short blooming period, and therefore in Japan they are thought to represent the beauty and shortness of human life. This metaphor for mortality makes Cherry Blossoms very popular in Japanese artwork, as well as tattoos throughout the world. In China, the Cherry Blossom has a somewhat different meaning, as it is associated with femininity and love. Their pink coloration is also thought to be symbolic of feminine beauty, and the fact that they bloom in early spring gives them an association with the end of winter or a difficult time in someone’s life.
These beautiful and highly meaningful flowers make for wonderful tattoos. If you are thinking about incorporating Cherry Blossoms into your next piece of body art, take a look at the following examples of beautiful Cherry Blossom tattoos.
