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.
if I ever et a tato it will be of a lotus flower.The lotus flower signifies the struggle and changes in life. The same way the lotus flower grows from something ugly but uses the light to guide it to the top and eventually becomes something beautiful.
