Flowers have a long history of symbolizing love in the majority of cultures around the world. Triumph of good over evil, the blessed feeling of closure and relief that loving relationships provide, and the pure and beautiful feeling of just being alive.
Flower tattoo artwork can include photographic-style art, yes, but it doesn’t have any history rooted in it. Custom sketchwork, as well as being able to use specific art techniques to intermesh and compliment one another, make up the fabric of tattoo history in general. Fading, blurring, shading, custom design, and other techniques foster creativity and allow tattoo culture to evolve with modern trends.
