The green color of a leaf represents several traits such as fertility, growth, beauty, and energy, it also depicts youthfulness, revival and rejuvenation due to the freshness it has. There was a time when I used to think as why most of the Mother Nature is in green color such as trees, grass, leaves, and vines, even a beautiful landscape comes out to be more prominent due to its soothing mint shade. In Chinese tradition, leaves of cosmic trees are considered all of the human beings of the planet. There was also a time when people believed that a certain race of human would grow on the vines of trees along the leaves. This legend is not well-known by many though, but it’s very ridiculous to believe or even read about these stories which are nothing but a blatant hoax.
What do leave tattoos symbolize and what do they convey?
Leaves tattoos convey different messages through their colors and shapes but together as a class or natural element, they have some particular symbols such as:
Nothing can live forever: Seeing beautiful scenery of a beautiful place where green grasses are soaked with dew drops make us believe that beauty is eternal, at least of the gardens or Mother Nature. But there comes a time in every year when even most beautiful leaves begin to change in color, turning orange or red, proving that eternal is nothing.
Life is only once: Green leaves nourish as long as they are attached with their trees and as long as they have favorable weather conditions to plump and grow. They live a life just like us but it’s just once. In fall or autumn, they star falling down from the trees and fly here and there carelessly through air. It conveys obviously a message to us that life is once, if you are gone once, you are gone forever. As once a leaf detaches with the vine and falls down, it can never revert to its original form and get where it was before.
Transformation: human beings, on the average, go through several transformations in his life, first they are born and learn to walk, behave and other disciplines of the society. They go to college or university to study in order to get mature, rational and sensible. They start a life with a family with kids and lead a happy lifestyle. In the last phase, they begin to get older and older day by day and in the end they die after achieving their goals. A life pattern of a leaf is somewhat similar, it grows on a tree, lends beauty to its surroundings, and imparts a good impression on nature as well as on Humans through its beautiful jade color which has a strong contribute in sustaining the artistic essence of landscapes. In the end, it begins to transform (just like human gets old), it falls down, get drier by changing the color, and withers.
