This fine-line piece is classic, clean, and would look beautiful placed anywhere on the body. "I would recommend asking for a simple rose and stem design, fine line-work, and the preferred size" to emulate this design, advises Asante.

"For something like this, I’d ask if the artist is comfortable doing fine line micro realism tattoos," shares Shrestha. "Something like this might need a touch-up depending on how it heals."

Tiny Flower Finger Tattoo

@JOANNAMROMAN / INSTAGRAM

Finger tattoos aren't going anywhere anytime soon, and if you're looking for art to include on one of your digits, we think this tiny flower is the way to go. We like the placement on the side of the finger instead of the top.

Micro Flower Tattoo

@MNSANTANATATTOO / INSTAGRAM

Micro tattoos are all the rage thanks to celebrities like Hailey Bieber, and if you're in the market for one, look to this pic as inspo. When getting a micro tattoo, make sure you're clear with your artist about your needs and expectations; if you go too small you can lose some detail.

Ear Flower Tattoo

@JOANNAMROMAN / INSTAGRAM

"Minimalist tattoos are very popular now," Shrestha tells Byrdie. If you're contemplating getting one, "you need to consider a fine line artist and remember how tattoos age... [it] might not be as dainty or fine line 10 years later."

Desert Rose Tattoo

@HUMBLEBEETATTOO / INSTAGRAM

"For a piece like this, the client should ask for a sternum tattoo, fine line-work, palm size, minimal shading, and the specific flowers (if there are some) that the client is requesting, blooming out from the root of the plant itself," says Asante.

If you have the name of someone you'd like to incorporate into your flower tattoo, or even just a favorite word, this is a great tattoo to take inspo from. "I'd look for an artist who does fine line work, especially if you're thinking of adding script on your tattoo," shares Shrestha.

Botanical Flower Tattoo

@BLACKNINKED / INSTAGRAM

If you're down to get a tattoo that's a bit larger, we suggest looking into botanical flowers. These won't work for small tattoos since there is so much detail, but if you're willing to go big, add this to your mood board.

Bluebells Tattoo

@TEALBARNESTATTOO / INSTAGRAM

Gratitude and ever-lasting love are beautiful sentiments, and if they resonate with you, you might want to get a tattoo of the flower that holds those meanings—the bluebell. This tattoo looks incredible on the forearm, and we love how it's a simple sketch without too much detail.

Eyes & Flower Tattoo

Our jaws hit the floor when we saw this tattoo of a beautiful rose and a pair of eyes. Tell your artist you want the eyes placed behind the flower, so it feels like the plant is being watched or looked over.

Thigh Flower Tattoo

@BLACKNINKED / INSTAGRAM

If you have a piece you aren't crazy about, consider covering it with bold floral ink. "You can use this style of tattoo to do a cover-up since it’s bold, dark, and in heavily concentrated areas," says Shrestha.

Floral Botanical Tattoo

If you love arm candy as much as we do, why not get a tattoo to pair with your bracelets? This ink wraps around the wrist and features soft shading.

41of 46

Orchid Flower Tattoo

@MNSANTANATATTOO / INSTAGRAM

To bring this overall vibe to your tattoo, "I would recommend describing the piece you're wanting as fine line, possibly specific flowers (if the client wants certain ones, it's great to include that prior), and size (top of the forearm, elbow crease to about right above the wrist)," shares Asante. And make sure they know you want "something similar yet not identical."

42of 46

Flower Vase Tattoo

How darling is this flower vase tattoo? Be sure to tell your tattoo artist you want it facing upside down on your forearm, with some blooms and stems peeking through the vase.

Ankle Flower Tattoo

@JOANNAMROMAN / INSTAGRAM

Ankle tattoos will always be a yes in our book, and you can't go wrong with one like this. Opt for a dainty rose in black ink with minimal shading to get the same effect.

Micro Floral Tattoo

@COUTUREINKK / INSTAGRAM

Whether you place it on your forearm, as seen here, or somewhere else like your ribcage or behind an ear, ask your artist to use a thin needle for a comparable look.

Blank Space Flower Tattoo

@HUMBLEBEETATTOO / INSTAGRAM

We think this negative space flower tattoo looks amazing as is, but if we had to guess, the person is using it to start a sleeve. The large flowers cover lots of arm space (and are truly picture-perfect).

46of 46
