Bursting Lotus by Lynsye Medalia

Currently unavailable for purchase

Featured in the Divine Feminine group and Coloured Pencil Art

Original is Prisma Colored Pencils and Micron Pen on 8.5 × 11 bright white printing paper

This is a tattoo design that I did back in 2005. This is one of my first tattoo designs I did with Prisma Pencils. I finally got it tattooed on my upper back last summer. Lotuses are a symbol of divine birth – this is my statement to the world that the Goddess is within me and we are all divine creatures. Lotuses grow from the depths of muck and mud into a stunning flower….this portrays my journey through life thus far – lots of hard times and struggles, but I’ve made it through….I am a beautiful lotus!

This picture is from the day I had the tatt finished. It’s still red and raised….I need to find a better picture :)

(NOTE Uploaded for a colored pencil challenge in the First Things group – I will upload a higher quality image for sale soon!)

    Wow wonderful xxx

  • Thanks! :) I started out as a pencil artist until the day I picked up paints! I don’t do as much drawing as I used to, but I do have some more that I want to add here. I’m at work and don’t have my original scans. :( Soon enough I’ll have a better version of this one and others that will be available as prints and T-SHIRTS! :)

    Ahhh, I love love love this, and I want to get something like this as my next tattoo! I had the same concept in mind, with it being a lotus as they rise through the mud, as a beautiful flower. It represents everything a person has gone through, all the troubles, etc and that person comes out strong and beautiful. Absolutely beautiful darlin!

  • WOW! Thanks Jacqueline! :) That’s the exact reason I have this tattoo on my back!
