Flower tattoos are for the most part a development of the past few decades, and testimony to the fact that it is now acceptable for a woman to get tattoos ( it wasn't always like this). Flower tattoos can be pretty and rather feminine looking, but all the same there is considerable variety with regard to the style and overall look of the tattoo. Flower tattoo designs are also popular amongst men, but then they are usually incorporated in a tribal design, or combined with a skull, cross or dagger. A lily as a flower in general denotes purity, but there are many different kinds of lilies and lily tattoo designs. In ancient Egypt, the lily was a symbol for fertility, while in medieval times it symbolized innocence. Lotus flower tattoos are amongst my favorite tattoo designs because of their symbolic meaning. The lotus flower is seen often in Indian and Chinese mythology, where it is a symbol for spiritual awakening. Flower tattoos are an attractive option for women who want a discreet and feminine tattoo, but they are more than that. A floral tattoo is often a good first tattoo for a woman who wants something fairly subtle.
Roses mean very different things for different people, but there are some traditional meanings as well.
The cherry blossom is a symbol for female beauty and love (in China), but also for the transience of life (in Japan) because the cherry blossom blooms for a very short time only. Just like the beautiful lotus flower floats on the muddy waters of a pond, it is a symbol for purity floating on the dirty waters of our society.


Just as the sunflower itself is bolder and more impact than most other flowers (due to its size and color), a sunflower tattoo is generally bigger and bolder than most other flower tattoos. They are very much in keeping with a feminine, ladylike appearance (Daisy is also a common girl's name) and are usually small. Flower tattoos can convey a variety of looks, images and styles, from old school to tribal. To start this bright, or should I say cloudy day, I am going to submit a tutorial on another tattoo concept. Depending on what type of flower you are drawing, you have to make the beginning shapes to get started.
Next, begin drawing out the first two flower pedals for one of the flowers like you see here. Now you will sketch out another three pedals of the same shape for the first flower and this will finish off the beginning design of the first flower. Start sketching out the other flower, and instead of dragging out the process for another two steps, just complete the entire drawing. All you have to do here is sketch in the stamens for each flower like so, and then draw out a few decorative leaves.
Here is where you will draw out the tribal design concept and this is where you really want to take your time because tribal art can be complex to create.
They are more than a pretty image on a pretty girl though, flowers are full of age-old symbolism (see further).
You can have just a single flower or a chain of flowers, or you can combine them with vines, butterflies, hummingbirds and ladybugs.


They are timeless and very attractive, and because they can be quite small, they can work in a variety of places and designs. For the flowers in this lesson you will need to start off with two circles like you see here, and then move to step two. Add some detailing and definition to the flowers and to the leaves, then move along to the last drawing step to begin the tribal sketching process. What I like about flower tattoos is the fact that you can draw in or ask for any type of flower or flowers you want to see in the stencil stage. If your favorite flower happens to be orchids, you can incorporate a nice tribal design along with your favorite flower.
That's what I did here, I took a flower species that I think is very pretty for the season, and in the back I drew in a simple tribal pattern that flows with the flower design nicely. The colors are also fun to play with when all is said and done because when you add color, you are also adding more detail, and more character.
I find that tattoos are a great way to express who you are and what type of personality you have. I think that this lesson is going to be fun to tackle, which makes learning "how to draw flower designs" anything but boring.
