One of the most popular trends in the modern world of tattooing continues to bloom and this is of course the demand for floral body art designs, not least because of the physical beauty involved in these but also for their highly symbolic nature. There are many different shapes, sizes and colours of flowers to choose from so this means an abundance of choice for those seeking one that suits them perfectly. If you are interested in body art of this kind, but want a flower that is less common than some of the more widely requested designs, then why not look into ideas for a sweet pea tattoo. This particular flower symbolizes departure and blissful pleasure.

Since Victorian times, flowers have been used as a means of communication through their symbolism and this is known as the secret language of flowers, from which the expression “say it with flowers” originates. When it comes to body art, a sweet pea tattoo has various meanings associated with this from delicate pleasures and bliss, to departures and farewell thank you’s. It is also associated with young children and babies in particular, so it was widely used as a decoration for everything from blankets, bibs, clothing and other baby products. If you were attending a Christening or baby shower, taking a bunch of sweet peas with you as a gift would be very apt, symbolically representing the event being celebrated. As body art, it would be also be a suitable and more individual way of commemorating the birth of a child.

If you are interested in getting a sweet pea tattoo you may want to know more about the history of the flower itself. These originated in Siciliy where they grew in the fields before their popularity spread across Europe and it was in 19th Century England that these really came into prominence. Thanks to its delicate fragrance and the variety of different colours, it became the floral phenomenon of the Victorian era. These come is red, pink, lavender, blue and white and were used in everything from bouquets and corsages to button holes and table pieces. In our modern world gardeners have managed to create a hybrid yellow sweet pea that has been somewhat elusive due to genetic factors, which mean a true yellow can only be created with meticulous engineering and hybridization. If you want body art that is more unique and perhaps expresses a seemingly elusive achievement then this could be the perfect floral tattoo for you.
