24 Gorgeous Ginkgo Leaf Tattoo Designs

Ginkgo leaf tattoo designs are in trend nowadays due to their unique shape, delicacy, and especially for their powerful symbolic meanings.

The ginkgo tree (Ginkgo biloba) is one of the oldest living tree species with an incredibly long lifespan which is due to its remarkable resistance to disease and pests, thus being the symbol of longevity. The ginkgo is one of the trees that survived the atomic blast of Hiroshima, being associated with endurance and vitality.

For centuries, its leaves have been seen as a symbol of peace and hope, particularly in its native land of China. Due to the unique botanical shape of its leaves, the gingko tree was associated with duality, those features being widely expressed in Asian literature and art.

Due to its medicinal properties, the gingko tree is a symbol of good health and a bearer of hope.

Possessing so many cultural values and symbolic meanings, the beautiful and delicate ginkgo leaf is a popular motif extensively used in Asian art but it is also valued around the world.

Inked on the skin, the most notable symbols of a ginkgo leaf tattoo are hope, vitality, love, and duality. A ginkgo leaf tattoo can be also a talisman of health or indicate the fact that you are a survivor.
