lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens. The lotus flower represents long life & health.
I think I'd like a tattoo like this, maybe either above the one on my wrist or on my right wrist. This is kind of sloppy though, so maybe a little sharper in the execution. A semicolon tattoo with the upper dot fading into birds.
