               A Family tree is a diagram for showing how the people in a family are related to each other. However, the name ‘tree’ is a fantastic opportunity for making these diagrams into beautiful designs based around actual trees. This can be developed even further based on ideas about the family providing you with roots, just like a tree. A family tree tattoo can therefore reflect how important your roots are to you. It is an extremely personal type of tattoo, and so it’s great for anyone who wants to avoid general tattoos. Family tree tattoos reflects on your past, present and future.. It is a means of showcasing one’s blood ties.This kind of beautiful tattoo will enact a permanent bond to all the people who have come before you.

               The tree occurs in the natural environment and is often used to symbolize life in most cultures. According to experts, trees are seen as long lasting and durable living objects because they can live for many years and possess the strength to overcome storms and other elements. Trees also play a crucial medicinal and safety role as a cure and habitat for different creatures. The components used for medicinal value include the roots, bark, and leaves. In the tattoo context, all the components of trees carry a different meaning.

             The most commonly depicted trees include Apple trees, Cedar trees, Fig trees, Maple trees, Walnut trees, Elm trees and Cypress trees. The Cedar tree has been used for many centuries as a popular construction material. In certain cultures, the tree is considered sacred for cleansing rituals. However, in the world of tattoos, the Cedar tree tattoo demonstrates incorruptibility and protection.The Elm tree, on the other hand, symbolizes the individual commitment and dignity while most people use the Maples tree to symbolize balance, duty, and harmony. Family tree tattoos for men are a personal category tattoos that give men the opportunity to showcase their love, gratitude, and respect for their family.

                 Family tattoos carry a special significance, and mean something different to every person who gets inked with a family symbol. Some family tattoos are particularly popular with men, and express the love and togetherness. A family tree tattoo is a great way to show your love and respect for your family, as well as being a great tattoo for anyone who loves nature.

              The meanings for these tree designs are as diverse as the names on the branches. The family tree is symbolic of strength, durability, bonding, perseverance, and love.This family tree is deep-rooted, it can not be blown over by controversy, and all the branches stand together as one with the tree.The family tree also represents longevity, endurance, and power. The members of the tree rally around one another in times of trouble, so the force of these combined names is more powerful than one single person.

             Another advantage of family tree tattoos is their inherent ability to become a loving memorial for those who are no longer with us. The memories of lost loved ones can be immortally preserved through a family tree tattoo. These linear arrangements are vastly customizable, but the striking content remains the same no matter what. Each name can even be enhanced with its own original calligraphy.

          The roots of the family tree  symbolizes a connection to the past, while the leaves symbolize a number of things, including growth and rebirth. The leaves can also signify transient objects that come and go. Flowers on their part largely represent blossoming of a relationship or life or the womankind while the branches represent the push to reach out to the unknown. On the overall, family tree tattoos represent the themes of life cycle, stages and seasons.

              There is no set type of family tree tattoo – it is completely individual, and every single one will be very different. Some are more like traditional family trees, and are just diagrams of how the family are all related. This may sound plain, but they can actually make beautiful tattoos! At the other end of the scale, some family tree tattoos are richly detailed images of trees, with perhaps family names added to the tattoo, or maybe a quote about the importance of family. Sometimes, different family members will be represented by small flowers or birds, perhaps in a different color to the rest of the tree, so that they stand out.

                The most popular type of family tree tattoo design is a black silhouette with swirling branches, but many other designs are also possible, and the tree can be as simple or realistic as you like. Some have lots of names and writing, while others may just be a tree with the word ‘family’ written underneath. Essentially, this is an intensely personal design which will hugely reflect individual personality and priorities. Each family tree tattoo should be completely unique and specially designed!

                The size of the tree and the possibility that it can grow larger over time determines the position of the tattoo on the body. It is important to pick a location on the body to get inked that will allow for potential growth. Designs are usually drawn on the back, where the branches can stretch far up to the shoulders if necessary. Smaller family  tree look great on the neck,  chest, arms, and even ankles.Many people put a huge focus on the roots of the tree, symbolizing a deep connection with family, bonds that can never be broken, and a love that will last through the ages.
