Tiger lily tattoos call on the same symbolism of the flower itself, including the concepts of pride and wealth. The idea of pride comes from the flower's colorful markings, and the wealth symbolism stems from the fact that the spots on the petals resemble coins.
Tiger lilies are bold, bright flowers with six petals. Each of the petals has numerous spots that give the lily a speckled appearance. Tiger lilies are edible, and they are considered a prized food source in its native Asian countries. The flower is also believed to have medicinal properties and is used to treat aggression, congestion and morning sickness.
