When we look at the snow, we can only see a solid white mass. By looking at this mass, we can’t appreciate the look of each snowflake. But when we look closely, we discover that every single snowflake is different. This principle also reflects on the humans. When we look at the mass, we can’t see any difference between each person. But every person is a unique individual. That’s why snowflakes became the symbol of uniqueness.

Another symbol of the snowflake is elegance. The perfect and unique form of each snowflake reveals how incredibly amazing our universe is. No wonder it is an example of divine beauty.

Moreover, snowflakes symbolize rebirth and transformation as well. When a snowflake melts and turns into water, it looks like it dies and disappears. But, as we know – this water absorbs into the ground and nourishes the plants. Later, it evaporates and enters the clouds, where it starts to fall again in the form of rain or snow. So, tattoo of a snowflake can not only express the purity and rebirth but even reveal your perception of death.

Although snowflake symbolizes uniqueness, it is worth mentioning that in some cases it may represent the opposite of that. A snowflake is also a slang word which describes a politically correct person who believes they are as unique and individual as a snowflake. However, in reality, this person is very sensitive to insult or offense. So, if someone has called you ‘a snowflake,’ it might not be the best choice to get this tattoo.
