Flowers for those who want to see them

Happy weekend ModBloggers!  Though I’ve been having a hard time seeing lately, I came across this beautifully bold and colourful piece while moderating BME photo submissions and thought I’d share it with all of you.


Read more and check out another view of the tattoo after the jump.


The work is by Graham Bradford of Pain and Wonder in Athens, GA.  The delighted wearer is Olive81, who started this piece as a cover-up and had the following to say:

“I am a plant biologist so I decided to not only cover up the flames, but to get an floral leg piece that covers that bottom portion of my right leg. It consists of a protea flower and poppy flowers, buds and fruit…”

These photos were taken after the 3rd sitting and the piece will likely take another three before completion. I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of floral tattoos and I love the way this tattoo pops.

Have a fun and safe weekend everyone!

  1. I don’t usually like outline-less tattoos too much either, but this one has promise of looking quite good. The colors are very nice! Thanks for this one
