A friend of mine wanted me to design a tattoo for her. She said she wanted cherry blossoms and a bird flying free from a cage. This is a sketch I drew for her. She’s happy.
It is different for the Japanese. For the Japanese the cherry blossom is a very delicate flower that blooms for a very short time. This represents the transience of life. This relates to the teachings of Buddhism that claims all life is suffering and transitory.
I think this is a powerful image for the woman I drew it for. I hope you can relate to it. The cherry blossom represents feminine power and love, and is also a reflection of the transitoriness of life. Humility. The bird, a swallow, is free. It represents dignity and freedom. Flying free of the cage, she is full of dignity, freedom, love and humility.
Are you free? What’s stopping you?
I will design a tattoo for you if you want. Please Email Me if interested!
