Along with the rose, one of the most popular flowers for tattoos is the poppy.
This is a multi-valued symbol that was widespread in ancient times. For a tattoo, one usually chooses a red poppy, filling it with color. The meaning of this figure can be chosen from at least ten possible options.
The sad interpretation of the symbol echoes the theme of death and war. There is a belief that the flowers Red grow on battlefields, like the blood of dead soldiers. This is due to the fact that in Flanders, after the burial of those who fell in battle in the First World War, scarlet poppies appeared on the graves in large numbers. So, the flower became a symbol of the memory of the victims of this military conflict, and later - of all the others that occurred after 1914. In addition, an earlier interpretation of the sign is also associated with death; even the ancient Greeks considered poppies to be attributes of the god of sleep Hypnos and the god of death Thanatos.
The ancient Egyptians were more optimistic. In their culture, the poppy is a symbol of youth, charm and feminine beauty.
But also in Egypt there was an intersection with the theme of death. Due to the beauty of the flowers, they were constantly placed in graves, so the poppy unknowingly became a symbol of Egyptian burials.
In China, the flower mainly symbolizes beauty and relaxation. Sometimes it is used as a sign of the night. The flower symbol is also associated with nature, the eternal cycle of its death and rebirth. Less common interpretations include a sign of respectful and submissive behavior.
This flower can be the subject of a Christian tattoo. The red poppy refers to the blood of Christ, his suffering and self-denial. In the context of religion, there is also a negative meaning: the flower is a symbol of apathy and ignorance. In addition, there is a meaning similar to the old ideas of deadly sleep.
A tattoo with a poppy can be filled as a sign of sincere love. This is due to a tradition observed in ancient Greece: young men and women swore their tender feelings for each other, bowing over a flower. A poppy tattoo in the context of British culture will signify courage. One of the Russian interpretations of the symbol is the transience of life. At the same time, the poppy in Russia meant at the same time eternal youth.
A tattoo with a flower can act as a talisman, and this is also associated with Slavic traditions: centuries ago in Russia this plant was used for protection. For example, it was believed that a poppy head would protect newlyweds from the evil eye and witchcraft.
Using the poppy as a source of opium can add ecstasy to a tattoo. Sometimes such a wearable pattern means fertility and fertility.
