Some with stem, roots and branches

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for the human being, in nature there are countless elements that can be drawn on the skin, from the strength of the trees to the beauty of the flowers, passing through the impetus of the rays or the The vigor of the waves.


If we talk about trees, the range of possible tattoos is endless. Classic legends like the forbidden apple of Adam and Eve or the arboreal gods of Greek or Nordic mythologies. The symbolism displayed by trees, stability, strength, patience, the quiet passage of time, the ability to withstand storms and always get ahead, all those and many more are reasons to tattoo a tree.

Because the trees they can represent all possible personalities known, from leafy trees that stock up on food and host a fertile and complete ecosystem under their canopy that would correspond to that protective mother and on which all the gear of her family depends, those deciduous trees that lose their leaves in autumn but who manage to survive the cold winter and that would be those people who struggle every day to achieve their goals.

As on other occasions, trees many times they are an emblem of nations or territories, like the maple leaf that appears on the flag of Canada or the olive tree that appears on the flag of Cyprus.

And also a lot of symbolism unfold the roots of trees, because trees are not only their visible parts, in fact the roots are a fundamental part for trees, they provide them with food, stillness, resistance, power, have you never observed the root system of a tree destroying all that built for the man?

The human body is a canvas with many possibilities to surprise with tattoos on trees. Cedars, oaks, pines, acacias, baobabs, redwoods, olive trees … each of them with a different meaning and associated with one or the other beliefs. If many trees are possible for tattooing, so many or more are the possibilities that the human body allows: from large tattoos that occupy the chest or back, small and subtle tattoos behind the ear or neck, play with blood vessels such as If they were the roots of our tattooed tree.


Perhaps the sexiest tattoo I remember is one of a girl and the branches of his tattooed tree made up the name of his daughter on the back of the neck, while the beginning of the tattoo, that is, the roots began just where the back loses its name. Sensuality is a world very treated with tattoos and in the case of trees, there are many girls who complete their pubic hair with a tree trunk and roots born from the navel, or on the contrary, it is just the pubic hair that makes up the root system of the tree tattooed on the belly of the girl.

We talked about the back, the belly, the chest, the legs, the feet, but what about the hands? Both the palm of the hand and the back are quite interesting places to tattoo a tree, the hands allow many possibilities to launch the imagination of tattooists and tattooed.

If you tattooed a tree, would you like to be original and different or would you bet on a classic tattoo that everyone would understand? It is a very personal decision, and not always easy to make.
