Fruit tattoos

Fruit tattoo symbols and designs Fruit Tattoo Designs - Fruit is nature's miracle, the botanical ovary, the vessel that holds the seeds to future life. Little surprise, then, that fruit often serves as a prominent symbol of abundance, fertility and prosperity. Think no further than a Cornucopia, or Horn of Plenty. Potent symbols of an abundant Harvest. In Greek mythology, the Cornucopia, or Horn of Plenty is the horn of the goat that suckled Zeus, the supreme Greek deity, which broke off and became filled, indeed, overflowed with copious amounts of fruit.

Different cultures have elevated some fruits to royal or divine status - the pomegranate and blueberry for example. The former due is to its garnet colour and gemlike seeds, and the blueberry because of its purple-blue hue, favoured by royalty. A fruit may be the emblem of a state, province or country -- the plum in Serbia, the mango in Pakistan. As a tattoo motif, there are many designs to choose from. A favourite is the cherry, symbol of fertility or beauty and modesty. The peach symbolizes immortality. Apple, twin pears, clusters of grapes -- take your pick.

Full of goodness, sweetness and healing, fruit in mythology is naturally associated with the goddesses of plenty, harvest bounty, and earthly pleasures -- but occasionally it's a symbol of temptation and gluttony.

Fruits feature strongly in folklore, myths, and as religious emblems. The pomegranate signified marriage in Roman times, while in the Bible it symbolizes righteousness. Count its seeds and you'll find they correspond to the number of laws in the Torah. (More or less.) The Romans associated the pear with Venus, the goddess of Love and Beauty, but in China, the pear stood for immortality. In Greek mythology, the fruit of the olive tree sprang to life from a barren rock on the command of the goddess Athena. It's been considered sacred ever since. In ancient times the olive was the symbol of peace, plenty, and national wealth. The lemon and lime were considered miracle fruits for their frequent use as 'cure-alls' in folk medicine. Grapes, of course, give us wine, which can make us laugh, the best medicine of all.

Delightfully edible, yes, but many fruits are more than that. The cherry and the mulberry provide natural dyes. We wipe our feet on the fibre of the coconut made into doormats, and we take medicine obtained from the royal pomegranate. The pineapple is the symbol of hospitality, and the coconut a symbol of good luck.
