Lotus flower is a symbol of purity and enlightenment; it is the essence of human nature. Lotus tattoos are meant to represent life, new beginnings and the possibility of people growing to change into something beautiful.
Lotus tattoo by Paul Weisengoff. Lotus' stand for rebirth- overcoming your past and living for the beauty of today. I'm a better, happier, stronger person because of my past. I want this lotus to remind myself of my own strength and happiness.
