What does a tree tattoo mean?
In many tattoos, the tree is drawn with its roots and branches intertwined in a circle. For example, colored Weeping Willow. Because of its droopy look the weeping-willow tree is often associated with a memorial tattoo.
The ancient symbol of the Tree has been found to represent physical and spiritual nourishment, transformation and liberation, union and fertility. Often seen as a symbol of femininity due to its long branches and flowing leaves, the trunk is seen as masculine.
