Want to get a fiery bloom tattooed on your skin? Does the soft beauty of lilies attract you? If you are looking for a flower tattoo that combines the beauty of a lily with bright colors, a Calla Lily Tattoo is a great idea. Native to the African hinterlands, a calla lily is not a true lily. In the language of the place from where it originates, its name means a pig’s ear. The huge petal that forms a gentle arch gives rise to this name. The graceful form of a calla lily lends itself to gorgeous designs, and its delicate beauty makes it ideal as tattoos for women.
If you plan to get a calla lily inked, decide on the placement of the tattoo. On long areas such as your leg, you can go for a design showing a bouquet of calla lilies. The rounded area of your forearm looks great with a realistic flower tattoo. For the wide lower back, a lily in a supine position can make for an attractive design. You can have the distinctive large petal done in a sensuous style in a color of your choice. Calla lilies come in many vivid colors which can brighten a tattoo design. From fiery orange and lush magenta, to delicate white and pale pink, calla lilies are known for a wide color palette and an attractive shape. Choose a color for your tattoo based on the theme you want to showcase. Purple is a mystical color that resembles the evening sky, and you can go for a purple calla lily tattoo design. If you are in love and want to declare it to the world, twin calla lilies make for interesting designs. Intertwining stems and two flowers is a design many lovers choose for their tattoo.
While rich colors stand out in calla lily tattoos, you can also play up the simple form with a gracefully flowy design in black.
The elegant lines of a calla lily make them particularly suitable for intimate tattoos. A pretty pink calla lily tattoo peeping above your waistline can be both inviting and erotic.
