The cherry blossom or sakura has long symbolized the ephemeral nature of life. The cherry blossom has often been a symbol of “spirit”. At one time the Japanese government even encourage the notion that fallen soldiers were reincarnated in the blossoms. This cherry blossom tattoo design is from one of my original drawings. Ill be tattooing through Saturday night at Ink Injection Tattoos in Richland, MS on Highway 49.
