Butterfly and Flower Tattoo Designs

Butterflies and FlowersTwo of the more beautiful, delightful parts of nature are the butterfly and flowers, and when you combine the two they are great material for photos and art, including being fantastic subject matter for tattoo designs.

While each can stand on their own as a compelling piece of body art, when you put them together you get beauty and design on steroids, resulting in some great tattoos.

One of the challenges of deciding on a tattoo design including flowers and butterflies is the wide array of color you can incorporate into the design, which means if you want something close to reality, some thought must be put into the type of flower and butterfly so they work together well.

If you’re not too concerned about reality but want to be more creative in the tattoo design, then you can go with your favorite colors or darker ink to express what you want on your skin.

Butterfly and Blue Flower on ShoulderProbably one of the more wonderful things about a butterfly is the way it flutters around as it looks for flowers to land on. That is expressed in many tattoo designs using butterflies and flowers as subject matter, as it is below in the first tattoo we’ll look at.

There are exceptions of course, based on people who enjoy a certain type of tattoo which is more interpretive or includes scrolls to indicate the flight patterns of the butterfly, which forces the image to be changed to reflect that decision.

As for this first butterfly tattoo, I like the very vibrant blue color of the flower, although it is a little loud, overwhelming the softer color of the butterfly. It also seems to clash a little, although overly much. I think the dark colors incorporated into both help save it in that regard.

Butterfly, Flowers, Bamboo TattooHere again we have a more traditional tattoo design, with the butterfly fluttering towards the flower, with a couple of competitor bees in the mix.

The uniqueness of this tattoo is a plus, but it’s extremely busy, with far too much color for my tastes. Leaving the bees out would have made it a better tattoo, as would leaving out that blue and greenish background color which adds nothing to the design.

If you had the rest, including the interesting bamboo, it would have been a really nice tattoo.

Butterfly on WristWhat is nice about his tattoo is the butterfly itself. Going with the dark border around the wings really make its stand out nicely. The flowers also look good, going from dark to light from the center out.

A weakness of the tattoo design is the scrolling, which I normally like. The odd shape of the scrolls, specifically on the far left with the sharp edge, doesn’t flow like scrolling usually does. Also strange is the inclusion of the two disconnected lines above the circular end of the scroll. Maybe it’s something personal that couldn’t be figured out by viewers, but it interferes with an otherwise decent tattoo.

Cherry Blossoms and Butterfly TattooCherry blossoms are a ubiquitous choice when it comes to tattoo flower designs, and there’s a reason for that: they look great. But that’s not the reason I included this tattoo in the gallery. It’s the position of the butterfly, which appears to be flying off, rather than coming in to land on the flowers.

That’s important because the placement would have been much better if it had been on the left side of the branch in the open area. The tattoo still looks nice, but I mention it to remind people that little details are a big deal when you’re going to have something permanently placed on your skin.

Tribal Butterfly TattooIt’s always cool to come across tattoo designs that are a little different than most that are usually used, and that’s the case here, with the tribal butterfly and scrolling incorporated around the flowers.

The butterfly design looks great, as does the scrolling and flowers. My only issue is the exclusion of the final scroll on the bottom flower. That’s because the tattoo appears to be finished, and it looks a little out of place. Still, a good tattoo, just one that would have been more complete if the scrolling would have been added.
