As loyal readers of this website will well know, flowers have always played a central role in the world of tattoos and, in fact, an article about flowers is dedicated on this website, in which you can read with total detail about the world of flowers in general and some of them specifically. In the case of this article, we will focus on the hibiscus flower.
As some may know, hibiscus flowers are a central element in Hawaiian-influenced tattoos and many people are drawn to these types of designs because of their shape and color. It is not surprising that for this reason some people try to include them in their designs as they are, so we can find this type of designs either centrally, being the protagonist; or in a complementary way, accompanying a specific design.
Hawaiian culture is a wise choice if we identify with the way of life that this culture leads, be it the tranquility and the sea as a way of life or some deeper meanings such as good work for others, which will be reversed in oneself. Another element belonging to this culture is the belief that I am because you are and I am through you, referring to the importance of human relationships and how they help us in our day to day.
These Hawaiian flowers represent in a very faithful way the beauty, the color that characterizes them which is alive and can be represented with a multitude of different colors give an incomparable visual result. These flowers serve to remember nearby deceased people and are a very typical offering and, on the other hand, represent the love for their culture, for their land and for their traditions, something like the love they feel for the place to which they belong. .
The areas in which these types of flowers are usually tattooed are usually the shoulder, belly and ankle. I consider that there are other very little exploited areas in which Hawaiian flowers can also have a very good result and be very well adapted, areas such as the instep, the forearm, the upper part of the leg or the neck. The recommended colors for this type of flowers are warm, whether they are yellow, oranges, red … They can be combined with other colder ones such as blue or purple, but for a professional result the warm ones have to be the protagonists.
If you are a person who identifies with some of the values that have been explained so far or it simply seems an attractive design due to the great variety in size and colors that this flower offers, this may be a good choice. In addition, as mentioned above, they may appear accompanying other designs, that is, in the form of detail rather than the protagonist of the design.
