Pink Lotus Flower Tattoo
When it comes to the colors of the lotus flowers, people usually go for pink or white lotus flowers. Did you know that, at least in Buddhism, the pink lotus is the lotus of the Buddha himself? It is said that a pink lotus represents the history of the Buddha, Buddhism, as well as the tales of Buddhism. The pink lotus can represent your devotion to the divine or spiritual, regardless of your culture or religion. On the other hand, you can also choose a different color of your lotus flower – blue, for example, which stands for learning and intelligence.
White Lotus Flower
A white lotus tattoo would be another amazing choice. A white lotus symbolizes mental and spiritual enlightenment. It can also stand for purity, perfection and pacification of one’s nature. When it comes to Buddhism, we have mentioned that the pink lotus is the flower that represents Buddha himself. The white lotus in Buddhism is called the Flower of the Buddhas, however it does not represent the Buddha himself. The white lotus can also stand for a goal for which one should strive.

“A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.”
