Tree tattoos are wonderful choices for a tattoo. Trees have had very important meanings to human beings in different cultures for as long as man has existed. In many cultures, the tree is a symbol of life itself. It makes sense that the tree is a symbol of life because it goes through a complete cycle. In the Spring, the tree grows flowers and sprouts leaves. In the Summertime, the tree is in glorious full bloom. In fall, of course, the tree and its leaves start to change, especially its colors. In winter, most trees lose most of their leaves so the bark is left along. In Spring, the tree again comes to life. This is the life cycle that is shown to us throughout the year for a tree.
From the beginning of tattoo history, the tree is a symbol that can be found. Trees can have different meanings. The meanings depend on the kind of tree that is being tattooed and the culture it is in. In many cultures, a tree tattoo can signify social status and nobility. Trees were often seen as sacred. More commonly seen tree tattoos are the cherry blossom tree from Japan as well as the Celtic tree of life. Both of these have been adopted by other cultures and interpreted in different styles.
