As with the real thing, flower tattoos are both beautiful and symbolic of many things. A lily alone, for example, means different things in different cultures. For some it is a symbol for purity and for others can represent erotic love.
For Asian cultures, the heavily symbolic lotus flower brings good luck, tranquility and rebirth. Whatever flower you choose to represent on your skin, whether alone or in a bouquet, can make a profound statement about what you identify with.
You even can express entire messages with flower arrangements. If you would like to promise to be faithful to your first love, this can be represented by a lilac surrounded with ivy. Those that view themselves as brave and lucky, or perhaps want to be, can link a chain of delphinium and stephanotis as an armband.
