Back & shoulder red carnation flower tattoo

Flower tattoos can be as plain or as detailed as you like and still be symbols of beauty and life. Carnation flowers have lots of ripples on their petals and this carnation tattoo has five sets of layering and shading to create a blooming look. The flower is inked in red with a yellow stigma at the center.

Inking the leaves that completely surround the carnation in black instead of green makes the red color stand out more. They are shaded and have areas left in her skintone. She also added another carnation bud tucked behind the leaves by the top of her shoulder.
