Posted: Apr 06 2015
Dreamcatcher tattoos are very popular amongst young women. The dreamcatcher itself is a piece of bohemian decoration, made up of twine and string, and adorned with beads, jewels, leather, and feathers. The idea behind a dreamcatcher is that good dreams flow through while the dreamcatchers trap the bad dreams inside it. Many people hang these in their bedrooms or doors as a symbolic means of protection.
Lotus flowers are unique in that they start out in mud and grow toward the sunlight. And when it gets to the surface, it blooms into a beautiful white flower. To many around the world, the lotus represents overcoming obstacles, resilience, pureness of spirit, and spiritual awakening.
Double Infinity Symbol
The infinity symbol is already a very popular symbol. It represents unlimited opportunities, hope, love, dreams, and never ending possibilities. Even in when you’re feeling down, there is no need to worry because the universe is ever changing. Everything passes. The double infinity symbol has been made popular by the ABC show Revenge. The main character has this tattooed on her inner wrist, representing her father’s love, which amounted to “infinity times infinity”.
Fleur de Lis
The Fleur de Lis is a symbol of very ancient origins. It has been debated on where it first showed up, but sources say it could be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia. It shows three lily petals which are bound together at the base. Although it was most widely used to represent French royalty, the symbolism has expanded throughout time to represent also perfection, light, and life.
