A flower with thorns... No, it's not the rose, it's a bit more original. Thistles are not the most popular flowers out there, but thistle tattoos are meaningful. First, you can get the wild plant tattooed to show your love for Scotland. Indeed, thistle is the symbol of this country. But it is also the symbol of Lorraine, a region of France known for its WWI's battles and epic History. Thistle tattoos can be inked for protection. The plant is associated with the Sun and Jesus Christ, and thus, protecting from Evil. Despite its wild aspect, it is also representating nobility. Many good reasons to prick yourself to these thisle tattoos!
