16 Wonderful Leaf Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

If you love trees, but looking for a less massive design, leaf tattoos are perfectly capturing their essence of nobility, purity and beauty. Leaves are always gracious. When green, their color and perfect symmetry is a great symbol of youth, life and energy. When autumn arrives, and sap abandoning them, they get incredible vivid colors and they fall on the ground with lightness and a poetic elegance. And even dying, they die pretty. Their decomposition leaves a delicate skeleton worth an intricate jewel. We are similar to the leaves of a tree, going through life and growing old. So let's do this like the leaves, but putting our best colors before turning to beautiful corpses... We can adorn our skin with leaf tattoos! Natural designs are refined, and they fits small to bold tattoos. You can have the soul of a botanist and love Nature to the bones. You can also enjoy the symbols behind leaves, such as maple and Canadian pride. Or you can only be an ink lover who enjoy gorgeous tattoos... Either way, these lovely tattoos could make you want to grow leaves...
