Strawberry Tattoo: Meanings

Updated on August 26, 2015

Have you ever considered getting your favorite fruity treat as a tattoo? But what exactly do strawberries actually stand for?

Believe it or not the strawberry is actually a member of the rose family. Shocking right? It has also been used a lot in Folk Medicine therefor representing a healing nature.

While most people would choose a heart to symbolize romance and love, a strawberry may be an even better choice! Their gorgeous bright red color as well as their heart shape have been considered the symbol of the Goddess of Love, Venus. Strawberries can be seen as a symbol of sensuality as well as sexuality appearing as seductive aphrodisiacs.

It is believed that if two people share a strawberry together that they are destined to fall in love with one another. That alone would make the idea of a strawberry an enticing tattoo.
