26 Delicate Botanical Tattoos & Ideas

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Botanical plates are packed with illustrations of flowers, fruits and other treasures that are references for gorgeous Botanical tattoos.

Nature has always been the first source of inspiration for art. Artists, but also scientists and ordinary people are fascinated by its intricate creations, especially in the vegetal kingdom. Indeed, tradition gave a meaning to every vegetal, but tattooed people often prefer to favor associations with their very own memories, such as herbs reminding them a grand-mother, or a summer night with friends in a flowered garden. Plants are known for their smell, a powerful way to keep a memory in mind and also to revive it.
Botanical tattoos are also a great way to adorn your body, as vegetal shapes are very harmonious and thus, easily adaptable to the body's curves (remember, we are also a creation of Nature, so we are working perfectly together!). Climbing plants and blooming flowers would never clash with your anatomy, if you find a great placement and a good artist.

But tattoos of vegetals, for who? Gardeners, botanists, vegan people, Nature lovers, men or women... No matter your sex and why you want this tattoo, if you are craving for it, do it! Take a look at those tattoos and ideas for inspiration and if you still have no clue for your very own Botanical tattoo design, Tattoodo can help you!
