Trees symbolize life itself. Each part of the tree – deep anchoring roots, broad trunk, branches spreading ever higher and wider, many-colored leaves – is symbolic of nature’s bounty. Humans have always revered and worshipped trees – in fact, they’ve imbued different trees with aspirational characteristics: The Oak symbolizes power and courage, the Cherry is ever-blooming love and romance, the mighty Redwood is eternity and forever, etc., etc.
Therefore, if you’re planning a tattoo as a means of self-expression, what better symbolic shape than a tree. These beautiful tree tattoos will inspire and root you, in equal measure.
