What Does an Orchid Tattoo Mean?

Tattoo's Are Visual Representations That Have Symbolic Meaning

Having studied human behaviour and body language it is funny to find out that people that get tattoo's often don't know what the symbology means.

Butterfly's show transformation and change

This is the most common tattoo for first time females, as they make the statement that they are no longer girls, but changed into women. The bigger and more colorful the butterfly tattoo is, the more they want people to see the change in them.

Orchid's show sexuality and procreation

The orchid represents both male and female sexuality. With the stem a phallus shape and the name meaning testicles in Greek, the orchid is closely associated to wearing a penis.

The female aspects of the orchid show beauty, charm and poise meaning that you are sensual and want to show elegance to men that see your tattoo. It is considered to be a sign of great fertility for this reason.

The heart tattoo is more complex

This is one the tattoos that context is very important to understand its meanings. The heart can represent courage, love, passion, and remembrance depending on the surrounding artwork and location on the body.

Tattoo locations alter the context

People will often place the tattoo in a private location if they only want a few special people to know about this event in their life. By restricting access to its viewing the person is making the statement that only select people get to know the real them.

With tattoo's placed in public or easily seen locations, it is all about wanting others to see the tattoo and get a certain impression about the individual.

Usually the tattoo will go on a part of the body that the wearer likes and has great admiration for. As seen in the males that wrap barbed wire around their biceps. They want you to see that their bicep is bigger than yours and that they are tough enough to wear barbed wire on their body taking the small barbs of pain in their stride.

Others like their forearms, the shape or strength in particular, so decorate it with letters or designs that draw your eyes along their muscular shapes.

Very few people put tattoo's on parts of their body they don't like unless they are hiding scars or other tattoo's from their past.

The important thing is to understand that your choice of tattoo and its location will say a lot more about you than you realise so pick carefully and know what your tattoo means.
