Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.
―Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858
Since the ancient time, many ancient cultures have witnessed and donned tattoos. A portrait of self-expressionism, tattoos have now become a way of life. We all recognize and believe that flower tattoos are rather feminine, plus these tattoos make a statement that women with tattoos are also accepted (which was not the case quite some time ago).

Although some of the designs may seem simple and delicate, many women have experimented with their tattoos personifying boldness and vibrant colors.
