What kind of emotions does this tattoo stir in you? A naked tree, stripped of its colorful leaves and left standing unprotected against the elements. Is it a symbol of lonely solitude or strength? Does it make you think of mournful times and personal loss, or of happy harvest time with apple pies and cool breezes? It may not seem like an overly complicated or beautiful picture, but a bare tree can mean many things to many people. That's why I like this tattoo.
Edit: The artist that inked this particular piece is Nik Lensing of Fluid Ink Tattoos in St Paul, MN.
