Stunning Sunflower Tattoos
The sunflower never resists the sun. The sunflower constantly turns its head towards the sunlight and is most definitely a summer flowering annual, bright, and cheerful. It dominates the other flowers in the garden with its height and width and does not cease to brighten any ones day.
If you’re in the market for a cover up, then you should definitely consider the sunflower – the highly patterned and dark ink of the centre of the sunflower makes the ideal foil for disguising the name of a former flame, or a badly crafted tattoo from when you were young and silly…or just plain silly 😉
Clusters of sunflowers make an eye catching tattoo – you couldn’t go past placing them as a shoulder piece or a full back piece. Sunflowers would also be as lovely – perhaps more feminine- as a small wrist detail, foot detail. There are magnificent examples of colored sunflower tattoos below, and also sensational black work tattoos, which lends its own interpretation of the meaning of the sunflower.
Regardless of color or not, the sunflower is definitely worth a consideration, reminding the wearing to always ‘look on the bright side’, in the words of Monty Python! Guaranteed to draw attention and to bring cheer, there really isn’t a happier tattoo.
Feminine and colourful, this tattoo has a wonderful placement, ensuring a flattering position. The tattoo is upbeat and cheerful, and pretty much sums up the genre of the sunflower tattoo!
This one gives new meaning to the expression, ‘walking on sunshine’. Every time the wearer looks down he or she will see a flash of brightness, reminding them to always turn their face towards the sun. I like it!
The shape of the sunflower itself lends itself to positioning on the upper arm area, directing focus to the centre of the tattoo. Why not have a whole bunch of sunshine on your arm?
Again, a beautiful and flattering placement for most body types, this well designed and positioned tattoo will be a constant reminder to be happy.
This work brings a unique contrast to the color and vibrancy of sunflower tattoos. Its stunning detail and detail do not allow it to sink to boring, however. In fact, the attractiveness of this design in absolute. Who wouldn’t be proud wearing this? It’s gorgeous!
Absolutely stunning. This design combines the drama of black work and the vibrancy of sunflowers in a large side piece that extends up to the shoulder and down to the thigh. Not for the faint hearted, the design is one to wear with confidence.
Feminine. Graceful. Elegant. Eye catching. Really, I could keep rolling out the positive descriptive words for this one, each flower could represent something of great importance to the wearer. Whether it was glimpsed in its totality or in just in little snippets near a shirt sleeve, this tattoo will captivate!
A bit different again – this one combines black work with tonnes of detail with a bold, almost tribal background.
the scrollwork in this tattoo balances the boldness of the color of the tattoo – it’s in a perfect position for this tattoo, on the lower leg.
A lovely tribute to a parent.
Again, the colored scroll work balances the tattoo, the tattooist has also shadowed to create a three D effect, adding depth and dimension to this tattoo. This is one to be very proud of.
Is there another tattoo that captures the color and boldness of the sunflower? Really, if there is, I’m yet to see it. This is a large, brave tattoo that perfectly represents the spirit of the sunflower tattoo.
The inclusion of bees and insects in this tattoo adds to its magic. Apart from that, it also has few outlines which creates a ‘painting’ type image.
This is a very striking tattoo. The dark centre on the flowers make it ideal for a cover up – or even just for its own beautiful sake.
