4. Flower Moon

Every May, we anticipate the appearance of the super moon, which only graces our skies for one night a year. This phenomenon is also dubbed as the “flower moon” because this is the time when flowers are most vivid and abundant. An ink inspired by this event could represent growth and the will to blossom just like the flowers bathed in pink.
