Chinese lotus tattoo - purity, delicacy and brightness.

Zhou Dunyi (1017 –1073), the great Chinese scholar enchanted the lotus in his essay: I do like lotus that is clean even growing in the muddy pond. It is so pure, delicate and bright. The lotus is consistent, continuous and coherent deep inside. It appears to be straight, proper and honest. It gives a fantastically good smell and people could even sense its excellent smell far away.
