world top cherry tattoos-trend tatto 2010

The cherry blossom is an interesting image for tattoo selections and it becomes even more interesting subject matter when one sees the growth of popularity of the tattoo in the western world considering that the cherry blossom is a flower that has deep significance in Japanese history and culture. The cherry blossom is the national flower of Japan where it holds tremendous significance. The significance of the cherry blossom is that of a symbol of peace and happiness and change. While this might seem like a somewhat simple view of what the cherry blossom represents there is also great depth on a humanistic level as it is a call for a change in the hearts of people. In other words, one should put away the darker side of human nature and become more accepting of the benign nature. Also, the blooming of the cherry blossom occurs during a brief and fleeting period of the season and, as such, there is also the underlying symbolism that life is short and one must make the most out of it, but there should also be special emphasis on living a life that is pure as opposed to using fleeting time for more selfish and aberrant purposes.

Of course, some individuals will select a for no reason other than it looks nice and, quite honestly, this is a perfectly acceptable reason for having such a tattoo. Of course, it would always be a better idea to understand the origins of the symbolism behind an image before having it inked. After all, you would want an image that agrees with your sentiments and sensibilities would you not? Then again, if you want it because the image looks nice there is nothing wrong with that either. The choice is ultimately your and your alone to make.
