The branch is a cherry blossom flower which in the city where I was born, Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, was our pride and joy. I guess you could say it was like our national flowers. We called it behar. It really represented Mostar.
So as you see there are 3 flowers, well 2 and then a bud.
First flower is fully bloomed, beautiful and whole; which represents my early childhood which was the best a child could ask for. Love, peace and harmony and the best parents one could wish for.
Second flower, has some petals ripped, which symbolizes when the war started and how it ripped everything apart, destroyed my childhood, my family, brought death and sorrow. (Notice the 2 free petals flying away, that’s my innocence flying away)
Third, the bud, represents new life and new beginnings that I made for myself and will continue to always do.
The word Warchild is self explanatory. I was a child, who lived through war, and experienced everything it came with. But I don’t look at it in a negative way. It also represents strength and courage to me.
As you can see I put a lot of thought into this but I really don’t know where to place it. I prefer for all my tats to be somewhat covered.
So keeping that in mind here are the body parts to work with LOL that just sounds funny!
I have ink in the middle of my back so lower back is possible but I don’t want this meaningful tattoo maybe in the tramp stamp area lol
Thighs?? (not sure if it’s weird to have this kind of tat on my thigh lol) I have something on the side of my right thigh so not possible!
Ahh see I dont know so what do you guys think taking into consideration the meaning and symbolism behind it and the size as well.
Thank you and look forward to seeing your opinions!
