love the placement! Tree tattoo with family branches I see this as the tree of "LIFE". Every lesson learned allows the roots to become stronger & dig deeper within the earth, thus giving the tree strength to withstand the elements from above.
Lotus flowers are cool! A lotus to represent a new beginning, or a hard time in life that has been overcome and the symbol "Hum" from the Buddhist mantra to stand for love, kindness and protection.this symbol is also said to purify hatred and anger.
