The Symbolism of Cherries.

So, why do so many people - especially women - choose to have a cherry design tattooed on their bodies? Probably because the cherry is very symbolic. It's also very versatile, since it can be rendered in a number of different ways - and in a number of different sizes.

On top of that, you can choose to have a single cherry displayed in a design, or a whole group of them. Beyond the fact that it's easy to depict, though, there are other meanings behind the tattoos of cherries.

Fertility - This one is definitely the biggy. The cherry symbolizes fertility. Whether consciously or not, many women latch on to the cherry as a symbol. Cherry design tattoos are often placed in provocative places on the body, too, which further enhances this particular meaning. While no one is going to argue that the cherry can boost one's fertility, it's ripeness and fullness are obviously why it is likened to fertility.

Desire - In some ways, the cherry designed tattoo is a little bit like the forbidden fruit from the Garden of Eden. They are delectable and sumptuous, yet they do seem to have a rather naughty aura. People lust after cherries - or, in the case of Warrant, cherry pies - and they are used as the perfect finishing touches on banana splits, sundaes and other treats.

Since a single cherry is usually used, they can tease people with their undeniable deliciousness. It's plain to see why desire is closely associated with tattoos of cherries, then. In body art, a cherry can easily represent forbidden or unattainable desires.

Luck in Love - If you've ever used a slot machine, then you probably know that the cherry can be a very lucky design. When you see a bunch of cherries, though, they usually represent luck in love. When a group of cherries appears in an illustration, they probably are meant to evoke that kind of meaning.

It's kind of like a man who can take his pick from a whole slew of "cherry pies" from the Warrant song - he's extremely lucky in love. Of course, there's definitely such thing as too much of a good thing - never get too many cherry design tattoos at once.

 The Beauty of the Cherry.

 Above all else, the cherry tattoo is a beautiful and eye-catching design. They only  ripen for a very brief window of time, too, and are only grown in a handful  of places. Northern Michigan and Oregon, especially, are known for their  delicious cherries.

In fact, Traverse City, Michigan is the Cherry Capital of  the World and has an annual Cherry Festival. If you're ever in northern  Michigan in early July, you should try to check it out. In any case, the cherry design tattoo  is a lovely symbol and can easily be used in a number of artistic ways.
