Beautiful Flower Tattoos Ideas For Women
Getting a tattoo can seem daunting, particularly if it’s your first time. What should I get? How much pain? How much time?
As a woman, if you’re wondering where to start, a flower tattoo can be a good place. Often simple, dainty, and small, these tattoos can be personalized in so many ways – adding a name, a particular color, or a particular type of flower. This can make them a great tattoo to remind you of an important memory or loved one.
Different flowers have different meanings, and it can be fun to research these when deciding on your tattoo. Let’s take a look at some of the most common ones here:
The Lotus flower.
A spiritual flower that symbolizes the opening of the heart in Buddhism. Often linked to meditation and yoga, a great choice for anyone who loves a bit of Zen in their life.
Universally loved, the rose is a great choice if you want some color in your tattoo. Different colors also have different meanings, like red for passion or yellow for friendship. A great choice for a particularly personal tattoo.
This has come to represent fertility and new beginnings so a great choice to mark a birth or adoption. Why not celebrate becoming a new mum with a beautiful daisy entwined with your child’s name?
Often associated with the Armed Forces, this could be a great choice for someone who has served or is closely linked to someone who has served in the Forces. A tribute to that person and their bravery.
Another thing to consider is the placement of the tattoo. Flower tattoos can look great in a variety of different places. Think of a leafy rose growing up your calf. Or maybe a delicate daisy on your wrist. Or perhaps a lotus spreading its petals over your shoulder blade. It’s a good idea to search for images of the kind of tattoo you’re looking for – this can give you some good pointers on placement.
One interesting idea might be to have a bouquet of flowers. This means you could add to the bouquet with further flowers in the future. So, you might have a red rose for your partner, a daisy for your first child, and a forget-me-not for a relative who’s passed away. You could then add to these later on. Perhaps another daisy for your second child. A tropical flower to remember a special holiday. Basically, anything that suits your imagination.
But what if you’re thinking, I don’t have a particular memory, I just really love flowers. Well, that’s ok too! Flowers are beautiful, and you are too, so it’s a great idea. And you can still really make this your own. Perhaps you love color and want a strongly colored floral scape across your back. Or maybe you’re more of a minimalist? This is where fine line tattooing can really come into its own. A simple black outline of a flower can look absolutely gorgeous and really sophisticated. You could also take this one step further and make the stem a favorite saying or mantra.
Basically, there is no limit to the beauty of a flower tattoo and a whole host of ways for you to really make it your own. My top tips to finish:
Research, research, research. This could help you to really decide on a design you’re happy with. It might also help your tattoo artist if you can send them pictures of the kind of thing you’re looking for. And it could be a mixture of a few different tattoos. Something like, I want this flower, with this script and maybe this kind of color.
Chat to different tattoo artists and find one who really gets your vibe. This means they are more likely to get on board with your idea and you are more likely to be happy with the finished product.
If you’re worried about your first tattoo, go small. You can always add to it later! But it’s a good idea to experience being inked for a short period of time, before going in for the long haul.
