Girls Rule With Flower Tattoos

Even women can have tattoos. It is not the exclusive domain of the male of our species. Although there are no hard rules to follow and any design can be used by anyone nowadays, the usual preferences for female tattoos are butterfly and flower tattoos. These symbolize and depict the feminine.

Flowers with leaves and vines could be inked to meander around the ankle and function as a permanent anklet. The design can be extended to curl around the upper leg, and even throughout the body if one so wishes. Larger flowers could be tattooed to cover a whole back. Smaller ones in clumps or alone could decorate the upper arm, the chest, the lower back, or the upper back shoulders.

Tattoos are used as decorative symbols of a person’s character and personality. Some of the most symbolic flower tattoos are the rose, the lotus, and the cherry blossom. The rose is said to symbolize romantic love, the lotus symbolizes hope and spiritual awakening, and the cherry blossom is a symbol of feminine power and love for the Chinese and the transience of life for the Japanese. Other flower tattoos that are being used are the hibiscus, the lily, the daisy, and the exotic orchid.

There are many artists who are good in tattoo art. There are many tattoo parlors where a girl could get her tattoo done. Each tattoo artist will have his own interpretation of how an image of a flower should be transferred onto skin. To help you choose, look through the photo gallery or ask for a portfolio that will show the work of each of the artists.

Aside from the quality of the work, one should check for hygiene. This is a very important detail. A clean tattoo parlor will be easy to spot. Needles should be disposable and disposed of after every job. The tatt machine should be maintained in top shape. The artist should be wearing gloves as he inks a client’s skin. Even the appearance of the tattoo parlor and the neighborhood where it is located are indications of hygiene.

Once the safety and quality are ensured, then by all means choose your design from among the flower tattoos in the portfolio and gallery. For a first tattoo, this is the safest design to choose. Other tattoo designs include dragons, snakes, texts, hearts, skull and bones, angels, panthers, scorpions, and astrological symbols such as Aries, Pisces, Sagittarius, and the like.
