There are many popular body art designs that are favourites with both men and women; however floral tattoos in particular are much loved by the fairer sex for various reasons. These not only look pretty and feminine but they are also highly symbolic as there are many different meanings relating to each and every individual flower according to the Victorian’s secret language of flowers. However, if floral designs appeal to you but you want one that will be especially memorable, then you may want to consider a forget me not tattoo. These represent true love and hope as well as remembrance and fond memories but it is also deemed that one who wears this particular flower will never be forgotten by their lover.

Most floral body art typically offer a positive meaning and a forget me not tattoo is no exception however it is also a very beautiful image that works well in a variety of different styles. One of the most popular is when it is used in a bracelet style, around the wrist or even around the ankle. This particular style is depicted as a vine design that encircles the entire area in a combination of vines, leaves and tiny blue flowers however the forget me knot is often used just as a single flower on its own. Other tattoos of this nature on the wrist may simply extend from one side to the other horizontally across the wrist or vertically from the base of the wrist and the bottom of the arm. This is also a popular way to use it as a memorial tattoo, to commemorate a loved one who is gone but will never be forgotten.

There are also several myths and legends associated with a forget me not tattoo including the poetic Greek ode of the star-crossed lovers Likas and Egle who’s love and devotion to each other was legendary in their small town. Unfortunately Likas had to leave Egle when his uncle died and moved into the mansion that was bequeathed to him leaving his poor lover distraught over whether he would still love her now he was rich. She was afraid that he would forget her and she would lose him to another beauty leaving her alone without the man she loved. However at the moment of parting, Egle’s tears streamed down her cheeks and landed on the grass beneath her where they transformed into blue flowers, the colour of her eyes, forming the first forget me nots. She picked a bunch and gave them to her lover who understood their significance and named them “Don’t forget me.” To this day, these flowers still symbolize the old belief that the wearer of this flower will not forgotten by their lover.
