Water is possibly the most amazing molecular compound in the universe. Unimaginable amounts float upon this earth, providing a key factor for life as we know it.
As the moon orbits this rock, it pulls the vast swaths of H2O back and forth, producing ocean currents that spread life and nutrients around the globe.
We know water best as a liquid, a refreshing drink on a hot day and the stuff that keeps you afloat and cool in lakes and rivers. It bears canoes, kayaks, and all manner of vessels down rivers.
As a gas, it forms a constantly-replenishing source of life that coalesces in the upper atmosphere and rains down, allowing for the spread of flora and fauna across land-locked tracts. As a solid, it creates some of the most beautiful natural scenes known on earth, and a fine, slippery, and beautifully geometric material that allows for skating, sledding and shredding in the winter time.
A water drop tattoo symbolizes life and beauty. It acknowledges the amazing balance in which the biosphere hangs and pays homage to the chemical compound that provides for our existence.
