One of the most popular flowers for tattoos is the rose. Roses are timeless symbols of love and beauty and make for a stunning tattoo design. Roses can be used to create a very feminine tattoo or a more masculine one, depending on the style of the rose and how it is incorporated into the design. Roses are also perfect for adding a splash of colour to a tattoo and can be easily combined with other flowers or elements to create a truly stunning and unique piece.

Another timeless favourite is the lotus flower. The lotus has a range of different meanings in different cultures but is generally seen as a symbol of purity, rebirth and new beginnings. Lotus flowers make for beautiful tattoos, especially when combined with watercolour or mandala style designs. They can also be easily incorporated into larger pieces as part of a more detailed design.

Detailed images of peonies can also often be found featured in good floral designs. They are often considered a symbol of good fortune and make for a beautiful tattoo design, especially in soft, feminine colours. Like a lot of these other popular flower tattoos, peonies can be easily combined with other flowers or elements to create a pretty and timeless tattoo design.

Sunflower tattoo designs are also timeless and have a range of different meanings. For some, the sunflower is a symbol of happiness and positivity, for others it represents loyalty and strength. Sunflowers make for beautiful tattoos, especially when done in a watercolour or realistic style. They can be incorporated into larger pieces or stand alone as a small and simple tattoo. Black and grey floral tattoos, like the one featured below, are especially impressive and will no doubt look stunning for years to come.
