lotus flower tattoo to cover up my old life tattoo. A lotus to represent a new beginning, or a hard time in life that has been overcome. Definitely gone through a hard time, and I've emerged out of the mud.
Phoenix with a lotus tattoo. *(needs better lotus) Great concept tho? A lotus grows from deep mud. The deeper the mud the bigger and more beautiful the bloom. The Phoenix is reborn and risen from the ashes of his past life!
