hellow! i know its been a looooooong time that i havent wrote anything in this blog. i am so sorry, it doesnt mean i am forgotten all of my readers *im speaking like i have millions readers lol!*
i am not writing anything related to my poets tonite.i just had a nice chitchat with a far-far away sista, named Syari about having a tattoo.
since i was in high school, i really wish to have a tattoo. i wanted a butterfly tattoo in my shoulder. i am thinking about small, simple, and black butterfly in my right shoulder.. but i cant because we are moslems, are not allowed to have this kind of body art. so, what i can do is only admiring to those people who had tattoos. im not kind of every-tattoo-lover. i only love simple, small, and beautiful tattoo. i hate seeing "scary" tattoo like skull or whatever related to crime. what i love is the art.. :)
and tonite, i was browsing a lil bit about the tattoo itself.. and i found an article talking about the meaning of a butterfly tattoo :)
Butterfly designs can have a lot of meanings, depending on the person or culture. Here's an overview:
- Often a butterfly tattoo is a symbol of rebirthand transformation: the "ugly" and slow caterpillar transforms inside its cocoon to the beautiful creature that a butterfly is. Having a tattoo of a butterfly symbolizes a new life, a new beginning after having gone through some rough times.
- Delicate beauty: a butterfly is small and very delicate, but also very colorful and full of beautiful details. On the other hand, it is not so delicate like most people think: contrary to the widespread belief, you can't kill a butterfly by touching its wings.
- A butterfly tattoo can be a symbol of freedom.
- In some cultures, like the Christian, the butterfly symbolizes a person's soul. The Greek word for butterfly for example, also means soul.
- In Japan they believe that if a butterfly flies into your guestroom, the person you love the most will come to you soon.
- Also in Japan, a large swarm of butterflies is seen as a bad omen.
- The Russian word for butterfly resembles the word for grandmother.
- In China, two butterflies fluttering together are a symbol for love.
- In some cultures it means good luck when a butterfly lands on you (imagine the luck you'll be having when you have one on you permanently).
- The phrase "having butterflies in your stomach" is a way of saying you are in love (or just very very nervous).
- For the ancient Aztecs, butterflies were the souls of deceased warriors or women who died while giving birth.
- For some people a butterfly means peace.
- And for some people the butterfly resembles a woman's genitals (Rorsach anyone?).
and i wish to have one like this:
