What is the significance of Sunflower tattoos? Artists use sunflowers in their paintings and artworks because it gives positive vibes. The flower blooms under the sun in the summer season. Therefore it signifies life and its vibrant colors.

People who are positive about life choose a sunflower design. The tattoo of sunflowers is popular since the early 20th century. People prefer simple small designs of sunflowers over large designs. Some even prefer half sleeves instead of full sleeves. According to Wikipedia, the tallest sunflower was 30 feet in height.

Sunflower Tattoo Meaning

Depending on the color and design of the sunflower, it can represent several meanings which are as follows.

Positivism – A Sunflower always faces towards the sun which is translated by many philosophers as always looking toward the good side, the positive side.

Devotion – Sunflower got its name due to its link with the sun. Therefore it also symbolizes devotion and loyalty. This is why many couples go for these tattoo designs. However, it is also opted by religious people. Check out this great list of couple tattoos.

Happiness – A Blooming sunflower always looks similar to a smiling emoticon. This is the reason why many link it with happiness.

Sacred – Sunflower has deep symbolism in several religions including Hinduism and Christianity. The flower is considered pure and a gift of God to humanity.

Sunflower tattoo Ideas

I would strongly suggest you go for a small and simple design as it will suit both men and women. Usually, a Sunflower design is tried in yellow color but there are other combinations too that you can try.

Some popular color choices are black and white, black and grey, and dot work style. You can try traditional and neo-traditional designs too.

Sunflower with Bees

The sunflower is a favorite flower of bees. They love to pollinate them and if you like bees and sunflowers, you can get a mix of these two. But, I didn’t like the below design because it’s not showing any connection. They can be put together in a single hand or in the shoulder area.

Sunflower Thigh Tattoo

If you don’t want to put the sunflower tattoo in the always visible area, then you can put them on your thighs. It’s an intimate place and also gives a large area to try out large designs. Thigh tattoos are also safe from exposure to sun and weather, so the ink will not fade away easily.
