Flower tattoos are for the most part a development of the past few decades, and testimony to the fact that it is now acceptable for a woman to get tattoos ( it wasn’t always like this). A floral tattoo is often a good first tattoo for a woman who outgrew the age of the fake tattoo and wants something fairly subtle.

Flower tattoos can be pretty and rather feminine looking, but all the same there is considerable variety with regard to the style and overall look of the tattoo. They can be small and delicate or they can be big, bold, colorful and eclectic. You can have just a single flower or a chain of flowers.

But Flower tattoos are more than a pretty image on a pretty girl. Flowers are full of age-old symbolism (see further).

Flower tattoo designs are also popular amongst men, but then they are usually incorporated in a tribal design, or combined with a skull, cross or dagger. Hawaiian flowers are appropriate for a man’s tattoo as well.

Flowers in tattoo art are combined frequently with vines, butterflies, hummingbirds and ladybugs. The rose must be the oldest and most popular flower used for tattoo designs. Roses mean very different things for different people, but there are some traditional meanings:

Red roses stand for love and romance (as well as courage).

Pink roses mean grace and admiration.

White rose tattoos stand symbol for eternal love and innocence.

Rosebuds denote beauty and youth.

Many old school tattoos incorporate a rose image, and even on their own rose tattoos can have some of that old school look.
