No matter the season, flower tattoos are a good choice for tons of reasons. Sad nobody’s given you a bouquet of roses in a while? Give a rose to yourself that won’t wilt or not text back for two weeks. Love flowers but can’t stop sneezing when they’re in your house? Ink yourself with a fragrant-free bloom. Simply think that flowers are beautiful and belong on your body—but not forever? Then rock a semi-permanent bud for a couple weeks. Vertical or horizontal, long stem or short stem, a flower’s shape also makes it a flattering choice for different body parts, like a long, vertical stem down the spine, or a horizontal stem parallel to the collar bone. We offer a wide range of flower tattoos that will complement a wide range of placements and styles. Check these out and get inked:
1) Amber Flush
This medium-sized rose tattoo is a great statement accent on an arm or on the breastbone, beautifully taking the place of a clunky watch or necklace.

This tattoo creatively combines the Briar Rose species with the formula for serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that sends messages between different parts of the brain. Serotonin is involved in everything from mood and sexual function to memory and sleep. Imbalances in serotonin levels are widely believed to cause depression. Bottom line: this neurotransmitter is pretty important! Pay homage to your brain’s chemical highways with this beautified image of serotonin. Fun Fact: Briar Rose is the name of the original Sleeping Beauty and the name of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christenson’s daughter.

3) Bloomin’ Moon
We associate flowers with the sun, but too much sun can damage flowers, making the moon important to flora. Ink yourself with a totally unique floral moon to celebrate the oft-ignored relationship between blossoms and the night sky. Place this curved design around your ear for a fun peek-a-boo option, or put it on full, minimalist display on an arm or leg.
