11 Refined Rosemary Tattoos

Get yourself a rosemary tattoo and feel like a Greek Goddess.

You generally think of only animals and flowers having a place in mythology, but herbs like rosemary also have some interesting stories attached to them. There was rosemary draped around the Greek Goddess, Aphrodite, when she rose from the sea. This also relates to how the herb came to be known as rosemary with the name derived from Latin words which translate to "dew of the sea."
