You might wonder what someone has to say when you see tree tattoos on their body. Trees have significant meanings, from the beginning of life to the end of life. Tree tattoos that include roots symbolize connections to the past or being firmly planted in self-sufficiency. Roots can also mean that there is a deep family connection.
Other tree tattoo ideas include a family tree with branches for each family member. As each member grows his or her family, you can add branches and leaves to mature your tree and fill in your family. The leaves represent growing families, new connections, and new life. If you wish good health to your family, a tattoo of a birch tree is the proper representation.
The apple tree can be a positive or negative, depending on your depiction of it. Apples, in religion, are known to be a forbidden fruit, so having an apple tree tattoo might mean that you are a bit rebellious and live life on your own terms. At the same time, it can also mean that you are a lifelong learner and knowledgeable.
