Delicate flower tattoo ideas
Instead of choosing a particular flower, you can get a small bouquet, for example. For a really personalized and original tattoo, try to draw it (even if you are not very good at drawing, it’s always worth trying).
The flower tattoo is ideal for a tattoo arm or forearm all delicate.
The color tattoo – a good idea?
Some say that the color tattoo may be toxic, others say that it depends on the ink used and its color. Both are true, here’s why you have to learn well before and ask your tattoo artist what ink he uses. Usually toxic inks are forbidden. Pay particular attention to the red ink. A large majority of color inks are made from heavy metals. It all depends on how sensitive your skin is. It is quite possible to make allergies to black ink. Never forget: skin is the largest organ of our body. It must therefore be treated with great care. But do not be afraid, find out beforehand and ask your tattoo artist for advice!
Give it a try before you start!
If you are the type of person who changes your mind overnight, we advise you to try with a ephemeral tattoo . It’s always better to try before you start! Permanent tattooing is a definitive decision. Like our temporary tattoo project friends inkbox * say: “Make a bad decision … temporary!” .
Tattoo Nape Flower – That’s tricky!
The flower tattoo is an ideal choice for a neck tattoo. In Japanese culture, the neck is the most attractive part of a woman’s body. It is also an ideal place if you want to make a tattoo very discreet and intimate. At any time, you can hide it with your hair.
Flower Ankle Tattoo – Great for the summer!
The flower anklet tattoo is also one of our favorite tattoos. This tattoo is also easy to hide – with your socks or pants, for example. It will be visible in summer, and hidden in winter. This area of the body is delicate and the skin is very thin. Also keep in mind that: the more the skin is close to the bones, the more you will have trouble when you tattoo!
Finger tattoo flower?
We use our hands every day and all the time. It is not necessary to say that the fingers are one of the most visible parts of the body. The finger tattoo is a big trend lately, but be careful … Remember that your tattoo will always be visible. If that’s your desire, then go for it! To tattoo a small sweet flower on the fingers is pretty.
A tattoo behind the ear?
Discreet, inconspicuous and soft – here is how you can describe in three words the tattoo behind the ear. The flower tattoo is a very good choice for a tattoo behind the ear. This part of the body is very delicate and a small tattoo will go perfectly.
