If you've ever visited Los Angeles you would have seen these birds of paradise plants everywhere. In fact, the bird of paradise plant is the floral emblem of the city. 

However, the bird of paradise is actually originally native to South Africa. In South Africa, it is known as the crane flower and features on the country's 50-cent coin. 

With the name and the beauty of the plumage of birds-of-paradise, these flowers make such stunning, colorful tattoos.
