“Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is.” – Jessica Harrelson
It is actually true that the spring season is cherished by all. Reason being, it brings with it the natural beauty of blooming trees, colorful flowers and lovely fragrances. It all just adds vibrancy to our dull and monotonous lives.
Therefore, when it is time to choose a tattoo design, giving a thought to floral patterns is inevitable. A constant view of these scenic pictorials may be a mood booster, even on one of the most mundane days. However, finding good botanical tattoo artists might be a challenge.
We will be sharing with you names of some tattoo artists who have earned fame and recognition for their outstanding botanical designs and extraordinary work quality.
Today a well-known botanical tattoo artist, Clinton Lee set up his first service center at the playground of his elementary school. He earned lunch money by embossing the fellow students’ arms with temporary tattoos for minimal charges. He made these tattoos with the help of a vending machine that was available at a nearby gas station.
Rising to fame by continuously improving the quality of his work, Lee has proved that passion knows no limit. He currently resides in Colorado, USA and is considered one of the best floral tattoo creators.
The most unique attribute of his work is his versatility. His designs can incorporate other elements such as that of spirituality, deity or materialism along with botany – as per the demand of his clients.
Below are few samples of his work:
This design is so cool. It serves the dual purpose of a necklace as well as a tattoo, and incorporates the floral elements without seeming gaudy.
This is a perfect example of a botanical tattoo which represents a floral design integrated excellently with a symbolic religious figure. This sort of creativity is exactly why Clinton Lee’s work stands out.
Kyle Stacher currently resides in one of the most populated cities in the state of Oregon, USA.
The peculiarity of his tattoo designs is that he uses minimal color, yet creates statement pieces. Therefore, he is also known as the “Black and Grey Botanical Tattooer”.
Even though the illustration of his designs includes soft elements and a slightly feminine touch, it is balanced by the lack of color and the presence of bold, blackish-grey lines. Therefore, his tattoos are suitable for any gender, because the end-result appears to be balanced and neutral.
Stacher decorates his floral tattoos by incorporating abstract elements or visuals of space objects in his designs.
Look at the following samples and decide for yourself if he is worthy of praise or not.
The entire skull is decorated with floral imagery, yet the design does not appear overly feminine or delicate.
Can you view the moon and stars shining brightly during a dark night in an aesthetic landscape with mountains and trees?
The interesting part is that all this is just one element of the larger tattoo design. The circle depicting this view is further surrounded by flowers. The design incorporates pine trees, flowers, space elements (such as the moon and stars) and natural landscape (such as mountains) – all in a single tattoo.
Isn’t this creativity enough evidence of the fact that Kyle Stacher is one of the most talented botanical tattoo artists.
Mini Lau is an artist who introduced the people of Hong Kong to small tattoos. She learned the art of tattooing from a school in Korea, and has set up her studio in Hong Kong by the name Mini Tattoo. The label of her service center not only represents her name but also the fact that she designs really small and delicate tattoos.
Most of Mini Lau`s designs are floral, and within a short span of time she has become so popular that she now travels to different countries on her clients’ demands to provide them with tattoo services.
Check out some of her tattoo designs:
This minimalistic yet intricate design represents the expertise of the botanical tattoo artist who created it.
Including tints of color and styled like a delicate bracelet, this pretty tattoo represents the famous saying that “there is beauty in simplicity”.
This design by Mini Lau is one of our personal favorites. Depicting a cute picture of the rose along with the message “don`t be fragile, stay strong”, it not only adds to the physical attractiveness of its holder, but also serves as an aesthetic and positive reminder to the viewers.
Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Alice is one of the most popular botanical tattoo artists in her state. She also owns a studio by the name of Wonderland PDX.
Her work’s distinguishing feature is her ability to incorporate images of different animals, leaves and insects along with flowers.
Here are some of the samples of her tattoos:
This design beautifully represents a flowery bush with birds sitting on it, and a bee buzzing around in the surroundings – thus representing the complete picture of a garden or a park.
Similarly, the second design represents a mushroom emerging from the ground where it was planted, leafy branches of the tree, and a frog hopping around.
Basically, Alice’s designs are very close to nature. She likes to maintain a touch of reality even in her tattoo designs. She would be one of the best choices for those who have extreme interest in nature and want to reflect that through their tattoo as well.
