White lotus blossoms are favored; For an interesting variation on the classic flower motif, you could create a silhouette style with contrasting white cut into black, or black cut into white. In this style you could also add small birds on the branches of trees, or emerging from a small bush filled with flowers.
Oriental style tattoos are understandable, as they are not only pleasing to look at, but hold a vast array of meaning and symbolism within every detail.
