Who doesn't love a nice floral moment?! Floral perfumes, cocktails, prints, home decor—you get the point. But if you haven't added flower tattoos to that list, consider it one more reason to love the little blossoms. They're delicate, colorful, versatile, meaningful, and of course, so freakin' beautiful, which are all qualities that you also might want in your first tattoo design. And since you can find, I dunno, a bazillion different types of flowers out there, you've got plenty of ways to let your creativity ~bloom~ and make your flower tattoo feel totally unique to you. To show you what we mean, we rounded up 39 flower tattoo ideas that are not your garden variety. So go ahead, scroll through these tattoos that are too pretty to pass up.
1. This Flower Head Tattoo
Usually "flower head" refers to the flowers on a stem, but in this case, it takes on a whole new meaning. If you're a creative or always have flowers on the brain, this is an obvious choice for a tattoo.
2. Butterfly and Bloom Tattoo
The only thing that makes a flower tattoo even better? Adding a butterfly tattoo in with all the little blossoms.
3. Botany Tattoo Idea
If you love reading books and you love flowers (or maybe even reading books about flowers?!) combine two of your favorite things into one cute tattoo design.
4. Fine Line Flower Tattoo
There's no better way to capture the simplicity of a single flower stem than with a fine line tattoo. See what I mean?
5. Flower Tattoo Idea: Sword With Rose Stems
If you want a flower tattoo with a deeper meaning, try a design like this one that features a sword covered in roses and signifies strength and love—or whatever you want it to mean.
6. Pretty Poppy Tattoo
If you consider yourself a free spirit, go with a tattoo that gives off a carefree vibe, like this hand holding a freshly picked bouquet of poppies and lavender.
7. Illusion Flower Tattoo Design
If you want a tattoo that makes ya think, get an optical illusion design, like this one. Depending on how you look at it, this tattoo is just a simple daisy with birds flying in the background, or it's a flower in front of a crying face.
8. Rose Bloom Tattoo
A fine-line tattoo this dainty only makes sense paired with a delicate rose design sans thorny stems, like this one.
9. Hidden Rose Tattoo
Is it just me, or does this rose tattoo (inspired by Dua Lipa's design BTW) have the number 95 hidden in the thorns and leaves? Such a cool idea.
10. Lily Trio Tattoo
Is your name Lily? Yes? Then do I have the flower tattoo idea for you!! But your name doesn't have to be anything close to Lily to warrant a tattoo as cool as this stacked trio of flowers.
11. Floral Body Tattoo
This tattoo combines the beauty of the human body with the beauty of two flowers, but my personal favorite part is the thoughtful use of color throughout.
12. Floral Tattoo Idea: Cherry Blossom
If you love wearing flowers behind your ear, make it permanent. I love how this cherry blossom branch behind-the-ear tattoo is visible even with hair down.
13. Birth Flower Bouquet Tattoo
Did you know birth month flowers are a thing? Learn something new every day! How sweet would it be to get a bouquet of your and your loved ones' birth flowers tattooed?
14. Floral Wreath Tattoo
Can't decide between a flower tattoo with some greenery or a plant tattoo? Ask your tattoo artist to work all of your ideas into one design, like this full floral wreath tattoo.
15. Sweet Little Flower
This tiny tattoo embodies everything you love about a flower (except for, of course, the scent), like how soft, pretty, and delicate they are.
16. Floral Hip Tattoo
Play around with the placement of your design until you find the perfect spot. For example, this floral garland makes the perfect hip tattoo for the way it wraps around the body.
17. Flower Tattoo Design: Carnations
Who says a flower tattoo needs colorful ink? If you prefer a simpler design, go with a flower that's instantly recognizable by its unique petals and shape, like a carnation.
18. Sunflower Spine Tattoo
You picked out the flower, now you need the perfect spot for it. Here's a suggestion: The center of your back! The vertical shape of a flower stem aligns perfectly down your spine.
19. This Ultra-Detailed Sunflower Tattoo
If you love an intricate, realistic tattoo and want to make the detailing the focus, leave it blank so you can really see all the line work.
20. Mother-Daughter Flower Tattoo Design
At first glance, this looks like two beautiful flowers, but on closer inspection, you can see how it resembles two people. It's the perfect mother-daughter tattoo.
21. Floral Pisces Tattoo
More than just pretty flowers, these blooms are strategically placed to create a Pisces constellation tattoo made of flowers and perfectly represents a Pisces's creative, romantic side.
22. Floral Shoulder Tattoo
What better gift idea for a plant lover than a nature-inspired tattoo? Hear me out: It's one-of-a-kind and something they'll have forever.
23. Colorful Sunflower Tattoo
You can't look at this bright, saturated sunflower tattoo and not be happy. It's impossible! This design radiates positivity and is something you'd love to look down at each day.
24. Lavender Sprig Tattoo Design
Sure, you could get a tattoo that says "breathe" to remind yourself you relax, or you could get a tattoo of some lavender which basically says the same thing.
25. Furry Friend Flower Tattoo
A cat tattoo is cute and all, but if you consider yourself more of a dog person, incorporate your furry friend into your flower tattoo design to pay tribute to the things you love most.
26. Tattoo Design: Flower Sketches
Not all flower tattoos have to be so detailed and intricate. A delicate doodle gives your tattoo a whole different vibe if that's more your style.
27. Nature-Inspired Tattoo Idea
If you consider yourself plant-obsessed and would always rather be in your garden, bring your plants with you everywhere you go with a flower tattoo like this one.
28. Flower Tattoo Idea: Bunch of Blooms
Choose flowers that represent your favorite people for a pretty design that also has a deeper meaning. Such a good idea for a sister tattoo or best friend tattoo, right?!
29. Baby Daisy Tattoo
If you want a hidden tattoo but also want to be able to show it off sometimes (because this daisy is too cute!), go with the inside of your forearm.
30. Floral Watercolor Tattoo Idea
If you'd like to add the softness of a real flower to your design, choose a watercolor tattoo for soft, fluid color.
31. Solid Rose Stem Tattoo
This filled-in color makes this rose tattoo feel even more romantic and dramatic. Further proof that color and shading make all the difference.
32. Flower Branch and Moon Tattoo
The branch of flowers is the first thing you see in this tattoo, but look a little closer and you'll notice a little white moon tattoo that makes it even better.
33. Floral Hand Tattoo Design
If you love flower nail art, take it a step further with art that lasts much longer, like a small hand tattoo,
34. Rosemary Tattoo
What's not to love about rosemary? The kitchen plant smells great, tastes great, and looks great as a flower tattoo, too.
35. Flower Stem and Script Tattoo
If you want to incorporate some script into your flower tattoo, here's a cool idea: Spell it out with the stem.
36. Stick-and-Poke Flower Tattoo
It might sound obvious, but small plants make for the best small tattoo ideas, too. Case in point: This cool stick-and-poke tattoo.
37. Orchid and Rose Tattoo Design
If you love orchids and roses but can't keep yours alive (hi, same), make your flowers last forever with a tattoo like this wrist tattoo.
38. Single Rose Stem Tattoo
Instead of getting flowers delivered for your loved one, get a flower tattoo in their honor. Even better if they sketched the design themself.
39. Flower Finger Tattoo
A flower finger tattoo is one way to make your middle finger soft and sweet. Into it.
