4. Colored Sunflower

A popular choice for flower tattoos will always be its exact image in color. Rendering the vibrant yellow petals of a sunflower as a tatt allows you to fully capture its essence effortlessly. For a less plain look, consider inking two sunflowers instead of just one!

5. Watercolor Sunflower

Another enticing way to create a colored tattoo is through a watercolor style. This technique uses dreamy strokes and hues to achieve an ethereal impression. However, keep in mind that this kind of ink requires frequent retouching because its edges are very soft. Once you see the beauty of the watercolor style, though, you’ll definitely feel that it’s worth preserving.

6. Sunflower Line Tattoo

Another doodling technique that will look great as a tattoo is the single line, in which a design is formed using just one continuous stroke. We highly suggest that you try sketching one yourself to give your sunflower tattoo a personalized touch.

Sunflowers grow quite fast, and they bloom before we even realize. A tattoo of the phases of their growth can lead you to look forward to brighter days ahead, especially on days when you don't feel your best. It can also be solid reminder that optimism can help you overcome any slump.

12. Monochrome Sunflower

No one can wrong with a simple black tattoo, and a sunflower design would look so elegant on anyone. Even without the bright petals, a sunflower's silhouette is distinct enough to still feel its cheerful character. Having it in simple black link will also save your ink from fading fast, and it will remain classic through time.
