Floral tattoos have been a tried and true tattoo design for countless decades. And that makes a lot of sense. Because, hey, who doesn't love getting flowers? (Editor’s note: Personally, I find flowers make a terrible gift. It’s like, “Here, take care of this living thing.” Anyone who really loved me would not burden me with the gift of responsibility, but whatever trips your trigger, Katie.)
Flowers are beautiful to look at, they smell nice, and if you receive the gift of flowers, it probably means that someone gives a shit about you (Editor’s note: As if, Katie!). What's not to love? The only downside is that, well, they die. Like really fast. And that's always kind of a bummer…
Luckily, there's an alternative to watching your token of affection die right before your eyes.
With a beautiful floral tattoo, you not only get to choose the flowers you want, but you also get to look at them in their most beautiful state, forever and ever. They never shrivel (unless you do), the petals don't fall off, and you don't have to throw them away after a few short days. You really get your bang for your buck, you know? Seems like a pretty good alternative to me.
That being said, we've rounded up some of our favorite, most lifelike floral tattoos by the best artists out there for you to draw inspiration from. So, tell your significant other to hold off on the real flowers next time and to just hand over some cash for a tattoo instead.
We can practically smell these floral tattoos. They’re that good. So, rather than give your significant other actual flowers, why not give them something to remember you by forever? Take them out and get them a floral tattoo. That way, you’ll never actually have to buy them flowers again.
