Sunflower Tattoos. I think flowers are one of the most beautiful things the universe has created. They make people happy, fall in love, and friendly. One of my favorite flowers are the sunflowers. They are not just called sunflowers because they look like the golden sun shining brightly, it’s also because the sunflower moves and faces the sun to get maximum shower of sun rays. In Greek mythology, the sunflower is a symbol of the water nymph, Clytie who fell in love with the sun god and turned into this radiant flower after grieving the loss of her love, Apollo.
There could be many reasons why some people get a sunflower tattoo, and if you want to know why…
Here are 25 Sunflower Tattoos to Brighten Your Day:
1. Nicely done sunflower tattoos
The placement is sexy too.

The placement of the 3 sunflower tattoos is just perfect with the design.
3. Realistic sunflower back piece tattoo
This is absolutely stunning and realistic. But if it were mine, I’d put it in a different place.

Some people prefer tattoos in black and grey only, despite the lack of bright yellow color of the sunflower, this tattoo still looks charming to me.

I don’t think these flowers/tattoos will brighten my day. I think it looks dull, but that’s just my opinion. Others might see it as very nice.

25. Sunflower and leaves
I don’t like the shape of the petals vert much, but the colors of the tattoo can surely brighten one’s day when you get a glimpse of it.
Big or small, colored or not, you can almost never go wrong with a sunflower tattoo. It is surely a tattoo that will brighten your day when you get a look at it. The yellow is such a happy color and the flower itself is magnificent and meaningful. It looks perfect wherever you put it, but just be careful what tattoo design you will mix it with. Sometimes it looks better alone, and if you decide to mix it with other tattoos, make sure their colors will compliment each other well.
