Cherry Blossom is a popular design for rib tattoos. Not only because the flower is beautiful and breathtaking but also because of the symbolical meaning attached to it. For Chinese, cherry blossom is a symbol of power and love. It also represents the power of femininity.
In Japan, on the other hand, the cherry blossom symbolizes the brevity of life. The flower only blooms for a short period of time. It encourages everyone to make the most out of life and appreciate what little time they have on this Earth. A cherry blossom tattoo can tell the world that you value every moment you have and you do not take life for granted.
Cherry blossom is wonderfully soft and feminine making them aesthetically pleasing and appropriate as a rib tattoo design.
