98 Beautiful Flower Tattoos and Meaning

Flowers are beautiful but temporary. Tattoos, however, last for a lifetime. If you love flowers, these flower tattoos will win your heart.

What is your favorite flower? For me, it’s daisy. The daisy flowers might be small and don’t capture much attention. But they match with almost any flower in a bouquet. They can either shine on their own or be the perfect support role.

And for you, you may identify yourself with other types of flowers. From rose and carnation, which represent true love, to orchid and cherry blossom that symbolize strength, flowers are not just a gift but a personal statement.

As much as we love flowers, they don’t last very long. Most cut flowers would last for a week or so. And seeing them wither is always the hard part. But there’s a way to make it permanent. And that’s why flower tattoos have always been popular around the world.

If you haven’t decided which flower is perfect for you, here are the most popular flower tattoo ideas and their meanings. Keep scrolling on, and you’ll find the one that complements your body and tells your story.

  • Yoga and meditation because the Lotus Pose is common in both practices

Red spider lily tattoos

The red spider lily, also known as hurricane lily or resurrection lily, is special in the lily family. The petals of the flower radiate outwards like the claws of a spider. And the bulbs contain poison, which gives the flower a feeling of mystery and danger.

Red spider lily tattoo meanings

In Japan, the flower is named Higanbana, which means the other side of the Sanzu River.

In Japanese folklore, the dead have to cross the river to reach their afterlives. Thus the Japanese associated the flower with death and used them in memorials of their ancestors.

Unlike most flowers, red spider lilies don’t have an enlightening symbolism. But because of their identifiable shape and stunning red color, it is a popular element in flower tattoos, especially for those who have lost a loved one. In western culture, “beautiful but not available” is the message behind a red spider lily tattoo.

If an elegant but badass tattoo is what you aim for, here is a list of unique red spider lily tattoos you’ll adore:

Waterlily flower tattoos

Similar to lotus, waterlily is a beautiful pond plant with large green leaves floating above the water. Most waterlilies have white petals. But they can also be pink, red, yellow, purple, depending on the region.

Waterlily tattoo meanings

One thing that makes waterlily so special is how they grow. They go underwater and transform into green fruit, wrapping the seeds inside. The special process gives the waterlily flower the symbolism of rebirth. And besides that, waterlily tattoos may also mean:

  • Good luck according to traditional Feng Shui theories
  • Youth, as waterlilies mostly bloom in spring
  • Innocence and beauty, due to the white colors of most waterlilies

In addition to its cultural and religious symbolism, the flower is just gorgeous. And the next waterlily tattoos perfectly capture the beauty and its meaning behind the look.

Daisy flower tattoos

In China, daisies are called Chu Ju (雏菊), meaning baby chrysanthemum, because of their similarities in shape and colors. And that’s why in eastern countries, daisies are often related to birthyouth and innocence. And they sometimes represent young girls in literature.

Daisy tattoo meanings

Daisies can also represent a crush on someone. If you are unsure whether someone likes you back, you pluck the petals of a daisy flower, and each petal represents yes or no. And you have the answer when you reach the last petal.

Though most daisies are either white or yellow, they also come in various colors carrying different meanings. A daisy tattoo in color may symbolize:

  • White daisy: Hope, a new beginning, and youth
  • Yellow daisy: Good luck, joy, and fun
  • Orange daisy: Optimism and health
  • Blue daisy: Loyalty and trust
  • Pink daisy: Romantic love and love for family

Daisy tattoos will be perfect for you if you are opting for something simple and small. And if that sounds like you, you’ll love these daisy flower tattoos.

Cherry blossom tattoos

Cherry blossom, also known as Sakura in Japanese, has a deep root in oriental cultures and religions. Alone, these tiny pink flowers might not capture attention. But they usually bloom on cherry blossom trees on a large scale, creating spectacular scenery.

Cherry blossom tattoo meanings

Though beautiful, the blooming of cherry blossom only lasts for less than two weeks. That’s why this short-lived flower is tied to mortality in Buddhism. A cherry blossom tattoo reminds people that time flows and we should live in the present.

Besides the pass of time, cherry blossom tattoos can also represent courage and gratitude. Just like the flowers, many things in our lives may be gone without us noticing. And thus, we should be grateful and cherish the small things we have.

During World War II, Japanese soldiers on suicide missions painted cherry blossoms on their airplanes. Though their lives would be cut short, the act was glorious and courageous.

As a traditional Japanese flower, the cherry blossom is often tattooed with other eastern symbols like dragon and koi fish, which you’ll see in the designs below. If you relate to its beauty or the stories behind it, these cherry blossom tattoos may inspire your next ink.

Dandelion tattoos

Have you ever blown a dandelion and make a wish? I have. These small, fluffy plants hold a special place in many people’s hearts.

Dandelion tattoo meanings

Dandelion gets its name from the French phrase “dents de lion” – teeth of a lion in English due to the shape of dandelion’s leaves.

Across cultures, dandelion tattoos have various meanings:

  • Life and the Universe, as the yellow flower resembles the sun, and seeds as stars and puffballs as the moon.
  • The flow of time, as the seeds will never return once carried away by the wind.
  • Wishes and hope. Some believe that if you can blow all the puff from a dandelion in one breath, your wish will come true.
  • Healing, like the wind blowing the puff away, pain and trauma will eventually heal in time.

Chrysanthemum flower tattoos

Though the petals of chrysanthemum may look fragile, these flowers are actually hardy and can survive winter. The flower gets its name from Greek “chrysos” and “anthemon,” meaning golden flower. It is called the Queen of fall flowers in the US because most of them bloom in fall.

Chrysanthemum tattoo meanings

In general, the chrysanthemum flowers represent happiness and joy. But because the flower is popular worldwide, a chrysanthemum tattoo may carry different meanings in different regions.

  • In Asia, a chrysanthemum tattoo signifies happiness and honesty.
  • In Chinese literature, the flower symbolizes integrity. Because of the fresh scent of the flower, a chrysanthemum tattoo may be a reminder to live a simple life.
  • In Western countries, chrysanthemums are used in funerals. But that doesn’t mean it’s inappropriate to wear chrysanthemum tattoos. The flower itself is seen as a protector against evil spirits. And a chrysanthemum tattoo may serve as a talisman that cast away bad energies.

It takes skills and techniques to tattoo the piles of curvy petals in detail. And the artists of the following chrysanthemum flower tattoos nail it.

Orchid tattoos

It’s hard not to notice orchid flowers for their bold colors and large petals. As a houseplant, orchids are pretty easy to grow and are usually the center of attention.

Orchid tattoo meanings

The orchid flowers are not just special because of their unique features. They are the “cheater” of nature. Some types of orchid flowers develop insect-like petals to attract pollinators. And that’s probably why orchid tattoos, in general, are associated with fertilitycharm, and elegance. But they can also signify strength as the flower survives in various environments.

If you find orchid unique and attractive, you are going to love these unique orchid tattoos.

Daffodil flower tattoos

Narcissus, commonly known as daffodil, is the March birth flower for it blooms in early spring. With yellow and white petals, the daffodil is often seen as the perfect flower to spruce up a home.

Daffodil tattoo meanings

The word Narcissus was commonly linked to Greek mythology. In the myth, a young hunter with the same name couldn’t stop admiring his reflection and eventually died of thirst. That’s why daffodil flower tattoos sometimes represent vanity. But there is more to the symbolism of the flower.

  • Because of the blooming time, a daffodil tattoo may signify a new beginning or a fresh start.
  • In China and some eastern countries, daffodils are considered to be a symbol of good luck.
  • A daffodil bulb may bloom every spring for several years. Thus a daffodil tattoo symbolizes rebirth and prosperity.

If you feel the connection with the flower on a deeper level, these daffodil tattoos may win your heart.

Poppy tattoos

Just like the red spider lily, the poppy is gorgeous but dangerous. Many species of poppies contain toxins. The blood-red hue of the petals also magnifies their lethal beauty.

Poppy tattoo meanings

In Greek and Roman mythologies, poppies symbolized eternal sleep and were placed on tombstones to bring peace to the dead.

In the modern western world, poppies are used in memorials of soldiers who died in the war.

Poppy is not a common element to tattoo for its negative symbolism. But on the bright side, it can also signify healing after loss.

If the poppy flowers resonate with you, you’ll love these poppy tattoos.

Carnation tattoos

Carnations are undoubtedly unique in their looks. The color of the edge of the petals may differ from the rest of the area. And it makes carnations stand out easily from a bouquet of flowers. From the surface, carnations are pretty to look at. But they are also meaningful.

Carnation tattoo meanings

  • Carnation tattoos may represent motherly love, especially in western cultures. The flower is believed to grow from the tears of the mother of Jesus as he carried the cross. That’s why carnation is the perfect flower to send on Mother’s Day. If you ever consider getting a mother-daughter tattoo or a mother-son tattoo, carnation will be a good idea.
  • A carnation tattoo can also represent love and marriage. In some countries, carnation is a common wedding flower and also the flower of a first wedding anniversary.
  • In Europe, carnation tattoos are sometimes symbols of change because of the 1974 Carnation Revolution in Portugal.

Leaves and vine tattoos

Technically, the vine is not a type of flower. But often, you will see vine in floral tattoos as a foil. But alone, vines make beautiful designs, too.

Vine tattoo meanings

Vine tattoos are controversial, just like the plant itself. They climb onto trees, walls, and other plants to get more sunlight. Unfortunately, their eagerness for survival sometimes causes the death of other plants. Thus vine tattoos are often symbols of desire and relentlessness.

If you relate to the fighter spirit vine tattoos portray, you will like the following designs.
