Physalis tattoos are elegant pieces of Nature that will adorn your body.
The physalis is a really aesthetically pleasing plant. Its fruit, especially, is truly harmonious, with its orange lantern protection, turning into a dainty skeleton and revealing a pure and delicious sphere. It's this unique look that have inspired poets for centuries.
Japanese people call it hōzuki, a small lantern. Arabs call it al-kâkanj, the fruit of Jerusalem and the French speaking's nickname for this fruit is amour en cage, "love in a cage". You can eat some types of physalis, but some are toxic. But they are all used in floral art for their exquisite lantern look.

Elegant, natural, physalis tattoos could charm you and these examples will show you how creative they can get...
