Lotus Tattoo – Meaning and Symbolism

Lotus Flower Tattoo meaning – the lotus flower, also called Nelumbo nucifera, means a lot of things: non-attachment, purity of mind, rebirth/birth/phoenix (lotus is born in the water, water means birth – look for example at goddess Lakshmi – she means beauty (like hibiscus or a lily), wealth, fortune. She is like a lotus, born from the water.), beautiful. But one needs to remember, if for some, it means something, for others could mean another thing. Here are a couple of lotus tattoo sets for you to choose from:

Celebrities with Lotus Flower Tattoos – Katy Perry (she got a lotus flower tattoo in 2012), Charlize Theron (also got a lotus tattoo), Jessica Alba (she got a sanskrit lotus tattoo – it’s a symbol. She got the word “Padma“, which means lotus in Sanskrit), Malin Akerman (she got a lotus flower on her back). I wasn’t able to quicky find more lotus flower tattoos on celebrities. If you are a better searcher than me, or know a celebrity with a lotus tattoo, feel free to let us know. Do you want some other related tattoo pictures with orchids?

What about the lotus tattoo with om symbol? I was able to see that many people are interested, not only in getting a lotus tattoo, yet an om tattoo along a lotus tattoo. One of the reason this happens is that the lotus symbol and the om symbol came from the same origin – Hinduism for example. The om is a Sanskrit sound. Some people do it because it’s cool, while others do it because famous people have it. But let’s see a couple of om tattoo sets:

Where should I have it? Wherever you want. But, here are a couple of body parts where people actually have lotus flower tattoos: on their arm, on their back, on their elbow, on their chest (for men most probably), on the ribs.
