Stop & Smell the Roses: Flower Tattoos for Tattoo of the Day

Things are comin' up roses with these gorgeous and lush flower tattoos of today's Tattoo of the Day!

For todays' collection of incredible pieces from all over the world we gathered together flower tattoos that will astound and inspire. These beautiful blossoms come in many styles, forms, and designs but the best thing about these babies is that they never die or wilt. Talk about seeing life through rose-colored glasses...We promise that with tattoos like these you'll never forget to take time to stop and smell the roses!

There are many reasons why flower tattoos are so popular. Partly because floral designs make the perfect addition to any piece, and each flower is bestowed with its own special meaning. Some kinds of flowers have old folklore stories and myths, some merely provoke thoughts and feelings of love and life. We've noticed that rose tattoos in particular are popular in flower tattoo designs, but this has been consistent through the ages. It's also interesting to note that not only do roses always mean love and beauty, but each color of rose has its own special meaning. See the image below for different colored roses and what they symbolize.

The traditional red rose symbolizes love and passion. A pink rose represents grace, gratitude, and affection. Purple roses have been used to symbolize royalty and enchantment. The blue rose is rare in nature, so it can represent the unattainable or impossible. A Yellow rose represents friendship, luck, and joy. Design your own floral tattoo with these different colors and meanings!

Shakespeare said "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet", but if we called roses "mugwort" would they be as poetic and lovely as they are under the name of "rose"? We don't think so. These flowers tattoos kind of reach beyond names anyway...they are beautiful and that's the most important thing. Maybe one day a tattoo artist will figure out how to infuse tattoo ink with scents like lavender and orange blossom. Tattoos will be like scratch and sniff stickers, only better because they last forever! Which is true of these tattoos in any case....they last forever. So, show your love and get your favorite loved one floral tattoos instead of a bouquet. Perhaps make it matching! And know that your flowers will never end up in a trash can, they'll always be much loved and well cared for.
