Women the world over love flowers so it is not surprising that floral body art has remained a strong favourite with female tattoo enthusiasts everywhere for the past few decades. These images have long been used in the art of tattooing, in fact since the practice was first discovered, and the lily in particular is a huge favorite. Not only is this a beautiful flower to look at and smell, but it also has a very distinctive shape and comes in a variety of different styles and colors which make it perfect for use in a tattoo design. One of my personal favorites has to be the Calla Lily tattoo as this ticks all the right boxes being elegant, symbolic and very feminine.

Like many species of lily, the calla lily tattoo comes in a variety of different colours which ultimately alter its symbolism considerably however regardless of the meaning, it makes a beautiful body art design so you may choose it simply for this reason. Overall, a call lily flower represents purity however different cultures and civilizations around the world throughout the century have denoted differing meanings to it. To the ancient Egyptians it was deemed to symbolize fertility while it stood for innocence to those living in Medieval times. One of the foremost meanings relating to the Calla Lily is perhaps the reason so many female tattoo enthusiasts are attracted to this flower as it signifies feminine qualities such as grace, beauty, modesty and splendor. However it has also been known to signify less ardent qualities such as pride and hatred although it has also been associated with prosperity in some cultures too.

If you want a wonderful floral tattoo design then this could be prefect for you as these flowers are both simplistic and beautiful at the same time. It is this simplicity which adds to their beauty and combined with their distinct shape this make them ideal for use in body art designs. These naturally come in different sizes so they work well as both large and small images for body art designs The Calla Lily tattoo is generally depicted with rich deep green stems and heart shaped leaves while the colour of the blooms may vary. Different coloured designs featuring the calla lily tattoo also alter the meaning of this floral body art with white representing sweetness and purity, while yellow stands for deception and falsehood to some but can also represent a coquettish and flirtations girl. It is perhaps this the ambiguity in the meaning of the calla lily, which endears this flower to tattoo lovers everywhere.
