It can be hot and sexy too.
A friend of mine asked," Why do guys always tattoo dragons, scorpions, spiders, Chinese or Japanese characters on themselves? Why not Hello Kitty or Winnie the Pooh?"
I answered," This is because they do not look cool on guys!"
Imagine you dating with a guy like this...
Introducing the modern Frankenstein! =P
Well, seriously, between....
....the answer is obvious, isn't it?
The lotus flower are the one most popular flower tattoos. The lotus flower has a story to tell - a flower that grows in mud and emerges pristine and pure, to bloom in perfect beauty, floating sublimely on the surface of the water. It closes its petals each night and, like humans, awakes from sleep and like humans, opens to the sunshine, to the new day. Some people prefer to think, like humans, it opens its soul to God. This ability to bloom on the surface and float above the mud symbolizes detachment from this world - it is in the world but not of the world. Poets and artists have struggled to describe and depict its beauty and mystery. Lotus flower tattoos symbolize these two characteristics.
Native American tattoos that depict animals for example may be reminiscent of astrology in that they can represent they type of person you are, based on an animal’s character. One of the most sacred of animals Native Americans revered was the wolf. The wolf is associated with those born between Feb 19-Mar 20. The character of the wolf is said to be emotional and yet gentle except when angered. The wolf is known to be intelligent, cunning and fiercely loyal. Native American tattoos representing the animals of the zodiac is said to have that animal spirit with the person throughout their lives. Other Native American tattoos can depict nature, such as the wind. Many Native Americans believed the wind was a living entity in and of itself.

Native American tattoos offer an endless amount of design options and can display a true homage to the Native American culture. Many tattoos are used just as a status symbol, but more and more tattoos are depicting cultural ties to a person’s heredity, affiliation with some group or club or tribal symbols, such as those found in Native American cultures.
