Carnation flowers have extra ruffley petals and lots and lots of layers. These two blooming carnations have thin black outlining to show the ruffles and are inked in dark pink. Dark green leaves fold out along the sides of the flowers in different sizes and two butterflies are flying above. The detailed butterflies have yellow, green, and red shading for their wings.

Butterflies and flowers are two symbols that work really well together as tattoos. Together they symbolize summer, beauty, life, and nature. You could play with the wing design of these butterflies and put orange and black for a monarch butterfly for example as well.
