Mutiny On The Botany: Tattoos Of A Predator Plant

Tattoo Ideas2 min Read

The Venus flytrap has sparked imaginations for centuries and inspired some truly awesome tattoos.

I remember being very young and playing Vs. Super Mario Brothers for the first time at the gas station by my house. I must have been about four years old. I jumped up on one of the first green pipes in World 1-1, and as I landed I was killed by a giant plant with razor sharp teeth, a terrifying experience to my four year old self. I asked my mother if there were really plants like that, and to my horror she said that yes, there were.

Pop punk stalwarts J Church once dropped an album called “Society Is A
Carnivorous Flower,” a phrase I’ve rolled around in my head ever since. To this day, I have no idea how apt that metaphor actually is, but I’ve sure spent a lot of time thinking about carnivorous flowers. They are a unique oddity in the world of plants, one of nature’s most fascinating designs, which in turn makes for some great tattoos.
