Lilies Tattoo Designs

At some point in our lives, we would experience the joy of appreciating the beauty of flowers, the joy in giving of flowers and the excitement of receiving them. A flower itself has no meaning, just like a cat or a fish. But it is the human emotion that a particular value to IT and our interpretation gives a consistent meaning over time. For example, you see a man giving a bouquet of red roses to his admiration and love with a woman again. But you will hardly see anyone with the same bunch of red roses on a funeral. The meaning of the same flower would evoke different emotions with different consequences for different contexts.
It's the same with flower tattoos. Other flower tattoos would call a different emotion, and therefore a different meaning to the viewer. Not only the women get tattoos of flowers, some men like to ink them. Most flowers have acquired a meaning consistent over time, but if you combine it with another object in a tattoo, the meanings have changed completely. Do you have a black rose with a chain around it as a tattoo on the chest of a man? Do you think the flower tattoo would love or hate might mean?
The whiteness of the lily's long white petals speaks of purity, innocence and chastity. At the same time and in different cultures, the trumpet-like flower called associations of erotic love and procreation. Clearly, the lily is one of the most ambiguous of all flower symbols. Christians took possession of the symbol on the basis of the Sermon on the Mount and it's "lilies of the field" passage. Think how beautiful they grow, but "they toil not." God gives, that is the message, and the lily emerges as a symbol of faith and surrender to God's grace. Liturgical, the lily is a symbol of Easter and of Christ himself , of resurrection and immortality. It is evocative smell, the smell of chastity.
