I love small tattoos and decided to make a tumblr to showcase the wide selection of examples.

Lotus flower 
It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing may never return. A stronger form of saudade may be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing.
Anonymous: "Re: the post with the symbols someone wanted a symbol for "strength" but didn't know what those symbols were--those are runes. I don't know that that chart is 100% accurate, but the symbol shown for "strength" appears to be a combination of Isa and Gebo."
boredblonde: "Hello :) i drew a rose myself and got a tattoo of it like the one in your post. I say definitely do it because they look really nice. I just looked at other rose outlines and combined the ones i liked, its pretty simple!"

Thanks for your input! (: Please submit your tattoo if you haven’t already! 

blackxidow: "why don't you just make a tags page instead of constantly replying to questions about "so you have any of these?". It would be so much easier than having to reply to everyone individually. Just a suggestion. I've been an avid viewer of your blog since before I got my first tattoo, and it really inspired me."

Hey! To be honest, I don’t actually know how to make a tags page, I didn’t realize such a thing existed! 

Aww thanks so much! Please submit your tattoo if you haven’t already!

Ok so I have been looking for a small and simple symbol to represent strength to put on my finger and I found this post but I don’t know in what way this star like shape represents strength. So I was just wondering if you know whether or not this does in fact represent strength or if you know any other little symbols that do. (and i’m looking to avoid any chinese or japanese like characters).I’m going to open this one up to my followers. Do you guys have any idea?
