Flower tattoos are extremely popular with women, but men too are enjoying the options that can be included in more dramatic designs such as skulls with rose eyes and much more.

Flowers have a lot of different meanings, but essentially about birth and growth and they connect us with the planet, showing us the beauty that can be created as well as the wonderful scents that can be made.  Finally we can watch them wilt away, depicting the fleeting nature of beauty and the mortality of us all.

If you choose to have a flower tattoo, the symbolism would include the cycle of life, but the different types of flowers in themselves also have their own distinctive meanings.  White flowers signify purity, and red symbolises passion, yellow is friendship and compassion while pink is for adulation and unrequested love.

Rose are by far the most popular tattoo design and represents love in all its forms.  The rose tattoo however has a dark history with roses being tattooed onto those people who were sentenced to death in the 16th century.  If by chance they managed to get away, they would eternally be marked with the rose and whoever saw it would know of their crimes.

While the rose may be the flower to represent love in the West, the East depict this emotion through the lotus flower which also is symbolic of wealth, peace and all things good.
