Ravishing Rhododendron Tattoos

Rhododendron's aren't a flower you think of when discussing flower tattoos, but they're actually more popular than you think.

The rhododendron is a plant species found mainly in Asia, but also throughout the Appalachian Mountains of North America. 

In Nepal the rhododendron is the national flower where they eat the flower, either raw, dried or juiced. And in India, rhododendrons are used to make fruit and flower wines.  

In horticulture, rhododendrons are used mainly as ornamental plants, just like how tattoos are used to decorate our bodies. Add a pretty rhododendron to your tattoo flower collection!
