If you’re looking for a flower tattoo that really makes a statement, this marigold tat could be right up your alley. Against the black, white and dark purple in the rest of her tats, this girl’s flower tattoo really stands out and draws the eye to the colorful shoulder ink. With the orange and red blossoms and green leaves, the flower tat design fits in very well with the rest of the sleeve.

Although the marigolds in this shoulder flower tattoo are pretty, this type of flower design typically doesn’t have a very positive meaning. Marigolds are the birth flower of October, and the meaning of a marigold tattoo represents jealousy, cruelty and grief. Marigolds are also referenced in the Mexican holiday known as the Day of the Dead, in which the flowers are a symbol of death.
