Men can get flower tattoos if they choose, even though these images are often seen as feminine. Men often choose roses for their flower tattoo, as the rose is a symbol of love and can represent a significant other.
Some men combine grittier images with their flower tattoos to make the overall body art more masculine. For instance, roses are often featured with skulls or a sword. A crown can also be combined with a flower tattoo to symbolize royalty. Flower tattoos can also be combined with tattooed images of loved ones as artistic tributes to loved ones who have passed away.
