I got this a little over a year ago maybe? My mom told me that she had always wanted a lotus moon tattoo and when she came across this picture she thought it would be perfect for me as well. My boyfriend thought it was beautiful and he got it done!

Are lotus moon tattoos more fenimine or masculine ?

A lotus moon tattoo is a design that incorporates or leans towards fenimism. Lotus moon tattoos are normally large and detailed, with small images like flowers or birds. And they often have an air of mystery and intrigue to them, making them a good choice for some people but not others.

Lotus moon tattoos are typically between 3-6 inches wide and can be inked anywhere on the body; the most popular areas on women would be the arm, shoulder, hip, waist, back and ankle.

A lotus moon tattoo can also be surrounded by floral designs around it if it’s not too big for such as placement. This would make it much more fenimine and less masculine.

That bein said, men can wear this tattoo also .

Best placement for a lotus moon tattoo

My friend recently got the “lotus moon” tattoo. I think it looks great on her arm and has fantastic meaning, but I’m not sure whether it’s appropriate for her skin tone. What is your opinion on the placement of this tattoo?

Lotus moon tattoos are often seen as the most popular arm tattoo. They are also popular as hand tattoos, or on the foot or even on the toe.

However, lotus moon tattoos can be placed anywhere and therefore it is wise to ask your tattoo artist first and consider his/her opinion before you go ahead with your tattoo.

They have a variety of meanings including spiritual knowledge and inner peace.The lotus moon shape is also related to Buddha’s footprint that was found in the mud. However, it can be challenging to find a good location for this tattoo.
