Many people have asked me why I chose to get a lotus tattoo. What is the significance behind choosing it? To be honest, when I first decided to get a tattoo, I just chose a lotus because it was pretty. It wasn't until after I got it, that I did some research on the meaning of a lotus. It can mean various things in different cultures, but the meaning behind it for me is that it's a flower that grows at the bottom of a pond and has to rise up through the dirty, muddy water in order to bloom, and even after going through the water, it blooms beautifully. That's how I see life, you have to go through the dirty, muddy waters in order to bloom to the beautiful person you were meant to be. .
I was super excited when there was a drawing of a lotus in this book! My tattoo pairs really nicely with it! A huge thank you to @jeffrey.kinsey
