While it’s not necessary that your tattoos have a meaning, it’s easy to find one with flower tattoos since each type holds its own symbolism. Unlike some ink of a panda being pulled into the sky by a balloon while holding a mushroom. Don’t worry about how specific that is.
For example, sunflowers represent vitality and happiness. Roses represent love, or even loss when paired with thorns. Lotus flowers represent calmness. And, all of these look great as ink anywhere on your body.
Floral tattoos can be delicate or bold, simple or complex, watercolor or traditional, and so much more. They can’t be scratch and sniff though; we already tried that more times than we’d like to admit.
30 Creative Ideas for Flower Tattoos
1. Sunflower Tattoo
This may look like a flower-in-bloom tattoo, but it’s really a self-portrait of us opening up. Back when we were blonde, anyway.
2. Flower Bunch Tattoo
Have you bought flowers recently? Because this tattoo is probably less expensive than this bunch of flowers would be in real life.
3. Micro Flower Tattoo
This tiny, delicate floral tattoo might just be the cutest simple sketch we’ve ever seen. Other than that cool “S” we practiced on every notebook throughout school.
4. Hand Flower Ink
We wear our hearts on our sleeves and our flowers on our hands. We’re a walking advertisement for Valentine’s Day and we get paid in chocolate. It’s a good life.
5. Spring Blossom Tattoo
6. Flower Portrait
Always have flowers on the brain? Here’s a tattoo for you. Ours would be a taco head, but to each their own.
7. Lavender Sprig Tattoo
We’re going to get a lavender tattoo to remind us to remain calm and breathe. Seems much more effective than the five meditation apps we have.
8. Spine Larkspur Tattoo
Turn your spine into a trellis. Sounds not the least bit painful at all. But requires much less watering!
9. Blue Cornflower Tattoo
Is this where blue corn chips come from?
10. Dandelion Tattoo
The weeds need love too. And we don’t mean that kind of weed. But…that’s also valid.
11. White Ink Flower Tattoo
Looking for a tattoo that’s more subtle? White ink is an option! Or, a temporary tattoo. Our four-year-old niece is a pro with those if you’re interested.
12. Colorful Flower Arm Band
Friends, we’re taking back the arm band tattoo. No more barbed wire, no more tribal bands. It’s colorful florals all the way.
13. Trader Joe’s Flower Tattoo
Our self care routine, you ask? Flowers, tattoos, and the best snacks from Trader Joe’s. With this, you get all three!
14. Wildflower Knee Wrap Tattoo
This has a very circle of life aesthetic to it. Well, a semi-circle of life. That’s the same thing, right?
15. Midsommar Flower Tattoo
A permanent reminder of this beautiful, yet traumatizing moment in film history. Pair with a bear for the full effect.
16. Traditional Style Flower Tattoos
They may not be realistic, but they are traditional. In that Sailor Jerry way. Because you know how it was tradition to have flowers on your oceanic voyage…
17. Cats and Poppies Tattoo
A little remembrance flower tattoo idea for your feline friends. We’re sure they’re having a blast tearing those flowers to shreds in the afterlife.
18. Floral Oil Painting Tattoo
Just pull up a chair at the museum, because this flower tattoo is going to turn you into a piece of art.
19. Red Rose Tattoo
This monochromatic micro tattoo is the perfect way to spend $60 in five minutes. Funnily enough, we can also do that in our DoorDash app.
20. Aster Tattoo with Raven
Asters represent wisdom and ravens represent intelligence. And that’s all the reasons we need to get a tattoo. Actually, we don’t even need that if our shamrock on our ankle is any indication.
21. Sunflower Mandala Tattoo
We got ourselves an adult coloring book with tons of these designs, but we like the idea of a tattoo we can color in more. Save the trees!
22. Narcissus Flower Tattoo
Narcissus is just a fancy word for “daffodil.” And daffodil is just a fancy word for “early bloomer.” And now we have flashbacks to middle school. Great.
23. Watercolor Rose Tattoo
If you like to dramatically throw yourself down on the table and tell your artist to use you as their canvas, perhaps this one is for you. No one else does that but us? Oh.
24. Flower Bouquet Tattoo
We love a good mismatched flower bouquet. Who wants a dozen of one thing? Unless it’s donuts of course.
25. Behind the Ear Gladiolus Tattoo
We prefer the trick where money appears behind your ear, but this is a pretty second option.
26. Lotus Tattoo
Lotus flowers grow from the mud. Which is clearly why they have such great skin. Uh…
27. Simple Flower Tattoo
Flower tattoos don’t need to be fancy! Sometimes all you need is clean, simple linework. And ice cream. That’s unrelated to this ink idea, but still valid.
28. Chrysanthemum and Lily Tattoo
Lillies often represent purity. Do you think tattooing it on our temple of a body kinda ruins that? Yeah we didn’t think so either.
29. Venus Fly Trap Tattoo
Cute, but deadly. Just like us when we’re hungry.
30. Feminine Floral Chest Tattoo
You could get a dainty flower tattoo on your wrist. Or you could go with, “I fell face first into a flower field and added some Miracle Gro.”
