plum blossom tattoos - beauty
Of the various Asian flower designs, plum blossom tattoo stands out the most. Plum is the national flower of China. Although it looks similar to Japanese cherry blossoms, it is different and unique. Among all the flowers, plum is the first to grow (or blossom) in spring. It endures the long cold winter with stamina. In Chinese history many well known poets celebrated the vibrancy of plum, praising its beauty and enduring character. Plum blossoms have endeared everyone because they bloom amidst the cold weather. This beautiful flower represents resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity.
As a Chinese calligraphy artist, I create plum blossom tattoos that reflect your personal styles and individuality. There are many ways in which you can enhance your Asian flower designs. Here are my suggestions.
