Today is National Tattoo Day, which is celebrated every year as a day to celebrate tattoo artists, the history of tattoos, and their importance in pop culture.
Choosing your first tattoo design isn’t easy, and they’re permanent works of art on your body, so it’s best to think it through thoroughly. To inspire you on National Tattoo Day, you don’t have to go for a full back to enter the tattoo world. There are elegant and delicate flower designs that are perfect for subtle impact, and it’s all too easy to look to celebrities with flower tattoos for inspiration.
In fact, this hot summer for girls has been all about flower tattoos. And a number of models have recently shared their tiny flower tattoos, whether it’s Bella Hadid or Hailey Bieber, or actress Vanessa Hudgens. Many have flower tattoos like roses, daisies or lilies.
According to flower expert Jinju Kim, whose tattoo artist nickname is JooJoo, works as a tattoo artist in Seoul, flowers are the safest and most versatile type of ink.
“I think celebrities need a lot of image changes to adapt to the situation because of the nature of their work,” he said. “That’s why it seems they don’t like tattoos that are too big to stand out in the public eye. As a result, small flower tattoos are a practical solution that anyone can get.
“The most popular flower tattoo is, of course, the rose,” Kim said. Although it might sound cliché, iconic stars have this flower inked, like Scarlett Johansson, who has a huge tattoo on her back of roses and thorns, while Bella Hadid has a small rose just above her left elbow. .
“The rose is a powerful flower that suits everyone, for its romantic symbolism. But right now I think the most popular flower right now for tattoos is the daisy. The daisy flower inked in white and yellow is iconic, simple and super charming.
Many artists have daisy tattoos. Musician Nia Lovelis has a daisy tattoo to honor her sister and bandmate Rena Lovelis, while singer-songwriter Dev also has a daisy tattoo on her arm. British singer Foxes also has a daisy tattoo. “I think daisy tattoos go well with any part of the body,” he adds.
The most popular place for flower tattoos is inked on the back of the hand or the neck. “But it’s recommended that you only get the area tattooed if you want it exposed,” Kim said.
“Another popular place for flower tattoos is on your forearm or ankle,” he said. “But if you want to hide the tattoo, do it on your ribs, hips or back. You can decide for yourself if you want to show your flower tattoo to others.
Some Korean celebrities who have flower tattoos include Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon who has a rose tattoo and Baek Yerin who has a huge blooming rose tattoo on his waist.
While color tattoos were more popular in the past, 2022 is all about the monochrome or monochromatic black tattoo. “An absolute favorite I’ve found is the black flower, and it’s a timeless tattoo that won’t go out of style,” Kim said.
“Many first-time tattoo clients seem to think it’s easier to get a black tattoo. It all depends on your personal taste.
If you’re considering your first delicate flower tattoo, keep it simple. The more detail you get on a small tattoo, the more likely it is to change with your skin.
“For flowers with too much detail, it’s not recommended to receive them in a smaller size,” Kim said. “If you receive a tattoo that requires intricate detail in a small size, there is a high likelihood that it will smear over time. But you can’t go wrong with a flower tattoo, it’s timeless and it never goes out of style.
