Sexy Girl Flower Tattoo Trendy
It looks cool, it looks trendy and many girls feel special when they have one: this is the flower tattoo craze. We say girls and not teenagers in general since a flower tattoo is more likely to decorate the ankles, the feet, the arms and the lower back of a girlie than that of a boy. The kind of tattoo a boy would go for needs to have the “trendy but tough” touch about it: scorpions, abstract shapes, horns, dragons make the favorite choices and the list could go on. Just as a flower tattoo would make a girl feel cool and sexy, the same way, a power symbol would testify for the masculinity of the wearer.
A temporary flower tattoo can be a great option for someone who isn't sure about permanent body painting. This works great for a party, a date or for the satisfaction of a mere whim too. Very often, teenagers avoid getting permanent tattoos because of their parents, and they choose a temporary painting to rise up to their personal expectations while still following the rules set by the elders. Yet, the tradition of getting a flower tattoo in the adolescence is not an invention of our modern times; it may seem odd, by young women used to get such body paintings two thousands years ago too.
Here we are talking about the importance of body painting in countries such as India, where a flower tattoo on the feet or arms was something more than common: it was tradition. This custom is still preserved, and it is used in both the temporary and the permanent variants with henna dye being used for such decorations. In some cases, organic pigments extracted from various herbs were inserted under the skin by different techniques; the most common way of getting a flower tattoo made was either by using needles or small superficial cuts at the skin level.
