An innate symbol of beauty and nature a leaf can be a very personal tattoo. Traditionally a symbol of happiness leaves have a strong history within many artistic mediums.

Quite simply the image of a leaf is an image that never disappoints, something about the delicate shape and colours of leaves always catch a persons eye.
The leaf has also been a common symbol of the cycle of life. Although the leaf falls from the tree and dies, the tree goes on living, it is the same with human mortality, though we may die life goes on and another is born. While the leaf dies in autumn it is reborn in spring. Many people who choose to get a leaf tattoo take it as a symbol of their own lives, a reflection of their own personal journey. Their lives moving up and down like a leaf in the wind.
