Clouds symbolize secrecy, dreams and being easy-going in nature. But we forget about the dark clouds which symbolize storms, thunder and waves. If you are into meditation, you may feel weightless when you are deep in your mind – as if your third eye opens up. This weightlessness is best shown with a tattoo where the third eye reveals itself as a cloud. You can get this art done at the back of their neck or on their arms. The amazing detailing in the rain with the ink makes for a remarkable tattoo.
