Weather phenomena like thunder and storms are fascinating to most people. Lightning tattoos are usually a tribute in their honor. They inspire awe and show the power of nature.
The natural world is a very powerful force and people should not manipulate it. Volcanoes, storms, tornadoes, waves, the depths of the ocean, the heat of the desert, fire, all these things over which man has no control. Seeing a lightning bolt in the sky makes you realize how insignificant you are in the scheme of things.
In general, a lightning bolt tattoo signifies power, strength, and intelligence. Lightning tattoo could also mean to you that everything in this world comes from nature and goes back to it. This energy changes from one form to another.
When it comes to the form of the design, you can take inspiration from a drawing of a real lightning bolt or use a symbol. Lightning bolt tattoo design is quite similar to a root branch, more like a taproot structure. With the black lines or roots growing from the main branch, spreading out into smaller branches. The lightning bolt is drawn in fine, prominent black lines. On the other hand, a simple geometric drawing of a lightning bolt you can filled with a floral pattern, for example.
