Women highly value flower tattoos as their first body art. While they may be feminine looking and beautiful, there is much symbolism about it. Each indigenous flower has its own symbolic characteristics. Next to the rose tattoo, the iris is the second highly symbolized flower tattoo design. The triple petals of the Iris flower symbolize the Holy Trinity, its blue and white color is often associated with the Virgin Mary.

In Medieval England, the noblewomen took the Iris flower as a symbol of virtue and even had its image integrated in their personal seal. The Hyacinth, Violet and Narcissus are flowers with names from Greek mythology. For instance, the Violet got its name from the little nymph Lo that is much loved by Zeus. There are many symbolisms of the many flower tattoo designs today.

Flower tattoos are not only popular among women but they are very popular amongst men as well. In men however, they are mostly integrated in a tribal design or combined with a cross, skull or dagger. Hawaiian flower tattoo designs are great for a man’s tattoo as well. Whatever your flower tattoo choice may be, you can be sure that the design will bring out the best in you.
