‘The Lorax’ is one of the most popular books written by Dr. Seuss and is an extremely loved movie for kids.

The plot of ‘The Lorax’ revolves around environmental damage caused by the cutting of trees and the greed that fuels this destruction. Lorax is the titular character in the movie and is extremely popular as a tattoo among fans of the book or the movie.

Lorax speaks for the environment and the trees of the valley where the plot is centred around, thus, helping children learn the importance of nature and trees. The specific tree in question is the Truffula, a fictional tree that helps in producing ‘Thneed’, an extremely versatile garment. This final product is acquired by cutting down the Truffulas and using their silky foliage in order to knit these special garments. The book takes readers through the experience of a young boy who finds this out from the Once-ler, who himself was responsible for the destruction of the Truffulas. Dr. Seuss tattoos are extremely popular and so are tattoos that feature various characters from his books. Lorax experiences a similar level of popularity, if not more than other characters. Thus, it is a great idea to get ‘Lorax’-themed tattoos or tattoos of Lorax, the fictional being. The book was initially published in 1971, followed by many adaptations and reworks. The movie based on the book came out in 2012 and absolutely cemented this unforgettable story of the Lorax in the hearts of millions of children and even adults. The Lorax is representative of the trees and the entire point of the novel is to put out a strong message that we must protect our environment and especially our trees. This is one of the most important reasons why many environmentalists and tree-lovers choose to get a tattoo from this beautiful work of fiction.

‘Unless’ has a deeper meaning that relates to the main focus of the book and the movie. Fundamentally, unless one takes any action, one cannot fix things or improve the condition of the environment (in this case). However, this reference can be used for all sorts of situations and problems. This is a great tattoo to have and Doctor Seuss fans will definitely recognise this while others will definitely have a lot of questions about the meaning of the tattoo as they do not know what comes before or after ‘Unless’.

The popular line taken from Dr. Seuss’s personal favourite out of all his works is truly something to think about and gives us a very important message. This line speaks about the fact that nothing will change, improve or get better unless someone, especially the person reading the line does something to change the current state of affairs. This can also be said for something that is inclining towards destruction where the only way to save something (the Truffulas in the case of ‘The Lorax’

Thus, the character is able to speak to children and even adults through the life of the protagonist in the book. This fictional character is able to speak to us about many concerning factors about our environment and pushes us to be a part of a positive change in a light and fun way.
