Need help with tattoo idea

Recommended Posts

Trying to flesh out an idea I have for my next tattoo but I'm struggling a bit.

I'd like to get something that represents/symbolizes unity, loyalty, family, love. Any single one of those or combination of them.

If anybody could throw out some ideas I'd really appreciate it!

Most of us agree that tattoo images are mostly only what they mean to you - not what they're supposed to mean to the casual viewer. Whatever image resonates those properties/characteristics to you is all that matters.

I just had my kid's birth month flowers tattooed on my forearm.  My son was born in November so his flower is a chrysanthemum and my daughter was born in February which are violets.  A guy a know has a tree on his forearm with family members' names tattooed on the trunk.  Pick something you'd like and think how you could use it to represent your family, that's how I came up with the floral idea.  You could also consider the Chinese or regular Zodiac.  My son and husband are both dragons so a dragon was in consideration.  My parent's are apple farmers, on my back I have a blooming branch of apple blossoms with an apple coddling moth that my dad sprays for as it's a pest, lol.

okk I realized maybe I shouldn't have asked for ideas.

What would serve me better is to ask where do you guys go to for inspiration to come up with your tattoo ideas?

I've been doing a ton of searching around the internet but looking to search some things I likely wouldn't come up with.

Anything is appreciated!

Perhaps there is/was a favorite memory that resonates with you and your connection with a united and loyal family. In that memory there are images (locations, objects, actions, etc) that connect the feeling with your recollection . . .
