Linework Biceps Tattoo With Whip Shading of Daffodils
This ia a beautiful piece. The linework is so neat, the lines steady and even. Add to that the whip shading, and it’s as if you can feel the texture of the leaves. I like the placement but must admit that I find that the tattoo’s dimensions don’t necessarily fit or enhance the “canvas” provided here.. What do you think?
Black and Gray Tattoo of Daffodils Over Outer Calf
Tattoo artist IG: @picsola does amazing botanical designs, as evidenced here. I love the tender vibe of this piece, which makes it the perfect choice for those who like graceful, feminine pieces. The design is such a pretty accent to the lower calf; visible yet discreet at the same time.
Color Tattoo of Daffodils on Lower Forearm
When jewelry just won’t do, a tattoo will. The curve of the stems adds a light, airy feel, beautifully highlighting the wrist. It’s interesting how this tattoo is positioned on the inside of the forearm, visible to both the client and others, and always by your side.
Color Forearm Tattoo of Daffodils
It’s so nice to see this grouping of different flowers, each beautiful in its own way. I really like the bell of the Daffodil in this piece – just look at how proud and classy it is! Like the previous tattoo, this design also has an interesting orientation, with the flowers essentially upside down.
Arm Tattoo of Daffodils With Ornamental and Geometric Elements
This gorgeous piece is absolutely to die for. I love how it looks like a splendid piece of jewelry on this client’s arm. The use of light pink against the darker black and gray tones, gives the tattoo such a dreamy vibe. It also makes the Daffodils the focal point, nestled within the “arms” of a beautiful Crescent moon.
Linework Forearm Tattoo of Daffodils With Texts
I feel like this tattoo must hold significant meaning. The simple text says it all, and in a graceful font, which is used to create the stem. Real skill is on display as seen in the even, steady linework. This tattoo is simple, yet so powerful, and will forever be at this client’s side.
Realistic Color Arm Tattoo of Daffodils
Here comes another lovely piece from the artist IG: @picsola. The shading in this piece is beautiful, with the artist using subtle gradients of yellow and green to add dimension and detailing. The result is that you can actually sense light reflecting off these pretty Daffodils. This tattoo is an example where the design’s dimensions fit and enhance the length of the client’s arm. Perfect
Blackwork Forearm Tattoo of Hands Holding Daffodils
This piece absolutely speaks to me. There’s something so affectionate about every detail: the gentle hands, the graceful text, and the beautiful flowers of course. I feel like this is the perfect example of daffodils symbolizing hope and endless love.
Realistic Color Tattoo of Daffodils on Outer Calf
The beautiful collection on the artist’s account IG: @saddliesdoestattoos is filled with many botanical pieces like this one. I love the realistic, fresh look of the Daffodils, which are brought to life with pretty tones of yellow and green along with skillful shading. Although this is a large tattoo, it’s feminine, thanks to its color palette and theme.
Fineline Tattoo of Daffodils on Forearm
This piece looks so sweet and dainty, thanks to fineline style. Aesthetically, the shading on the petals is beautiful, and also serves to contrast with the thin black lines seen elsewhere in the design. Technically it should be pointed out that the lines are somewhat uneven and irregular. Regardless, this is one very pretty tattoo.
Black and Gray Daffodil Tattoo Over Triceps
The placement and dimensions of this tattoo are perfect. It’s easy to see how the design enhances the delicate contours of this client’s slender arm. Its position also assures that it can readily be admired by all. For more awesome tattoo inspiration, check out the artist at IG: @leehumphs_tattooer!
Color Forearm Tattoo of Daffodil Bouquet
The vibrant color palette in this piece immediately caught my attention. All the flowers look amazing, but my favorite are definitely the bright yellow Daffodils. It’s interesting that there’s a “π” sign next to the bow. It’s the Greek letter “pi”, that’s used as a mathematical symbol. I wonder what it means here. Regardless, this tattoo is not only beautiful, but also beautifully showcases a design and its location as the perfect match for one another.
Micro Color Polaroid Tattoo of Daffodils on Stamp
This is such a lovealy design idea! It really takes us on a trip down memory lane, featuring an older stamp from Korea. I love the earthy color palette of the design, which works so well with its nostalgic theme. I’m sure this piece is a reference to some memorable past experience. And now it’s a forever souvenir.
Blackwork Tattoo of Daffodils on Upper Arm
Here comes a garden full of flowers, perhaps for anyone with thoughts of a half-sleeve tattoo. I love how the Daffodils fit between the other tattoos, blending in but also becoming a focal point. With their beautiful shading, the Daffodils are reminiscent of a beautiful piece of black lace. To see more from this artist, check out IG: @hillary_blair.
Single Line Daffodil Tattoo on Forearm
I absolutely adore single line pieces! No shading or coloring is needed for this design to stand out, thanks to the mesmerizing, hypnotic loops of one, single, black line. It actually looks just like the artist took pen to paper, or in this case ink to skin, to create this little beauty.
Micro Color Tattoo of Person Daffodils
I love the simplicity of this design, thin sketch-like black lines outlining a person, in what appears to be a self embrace. Superimposed on this, is a scattering of sweet Daffodils. With dabs of color and light reflecting off them, these Daffodils dazzle.
Black and Gray Tattoo of Daffodil Bouquet on Forearm
Another Daffodil bouquet for you, but this one’s accompanied by so many sparkling stars around it. The gray shading looks particularly pretty against the darker black outlines. Props to the artist IG: @yolie.light for such a memorable piece.
Fineline Tattoo of Daffodils Over Biceps
This piece looks so dainty and gentle, which makes it the perfect choice for someone looking for an ultra-feminine design. I really like the dotwork in the background, which creates a nice frame for the Daffodils. It definitely highlights them and serves to make them an eye-catching focal point.
Floral Color Tattoo With Daffodils Over Biceps
I really like the color palette in this piece; while muted it definitely grabs your attention. The dimensions of this tattoo are perfect for its positioning. It’s slender and linear with just the right amount of width at the top. You can see how it mirrors the “canvas” on which it’s inked.

Watercolor Tattoo of Mouse, Daffodil and Rice Plant
I honestly went “Aww!” when I first saw this piece. I just adore how the mouse is hiding inside the Daffodil, perhaps mistaking it for the rice. Beyond this, the inking in this tattoo is really beautiful. There’s skilled shading on display, along with exquisite use of white ink highlights and negative or uninked space. The wispiness of the stems are then like… The Icing On The Cake
Black and Gray Arm Tattoo of Daffodil
I love the raindrops on the petals of the Daffodil, they’re a small but endearing touch. The shading seen here is muted and delicate, perfect for the subtleness of this piece. Although this tattoo would look perfect on its own, it also meshes well with the existing tattoos. I wonder if the client will be getting a botanical full-sleeve, because she’s off to a great start!
Linework Tattoo of Daffodil and Delphinium Over Biceps
I love it when different types of flowers come together to create a beautiful bouquet. We’ve seen a lot of wonderful examples of that on the list, and this one is no exception. I like the subtle shading that really adds dimensions to the design, while keeping it light and very gentle-looking!
Black and Gray Tattoo of Daffodils on Forearm
The leaves in this design are definitely my favorite element. I like how tender they look, and how they contrast so nicely with the black outlines of the petals. Again, this tattoo demonstrates a perfect “marriage” of design and location. If you’re into botanical tattoos, don’t miss out on the artist’s page at IG: @jola.tattoo, where you can find more beautiful ones like this!
Color Tattoo of Daffodils
The colors in this tattoo are just splendid. I like how the varying tones of the same color add dimension, while also providing a source of light. The leaves, in particular, have a dewy-fresh appearance thanks to the light seen reflecting off them. White ink also nicely highlights the petals of the Daffodils. Props to the artist at IG: @muetattoox.
Minimal Matching Tattoos of Daffodils on Forearm and Ankle
It looks like one client is the proud “owner” of these two delicate tattoos. The lines in each are smooth and steady, and the negative space around each Daffodil makes them pop even more. Either tattoo, or the pair, would be perfect for the tattoo-newbie as they’re subtle, in regards to both size and location.
Linework Tattoo of Daffodils Over Triceps
The linework in this design is simply impeccable. I really like how no shading or color is needed for this design to look so rich in texture. Look at the graceful curves of the leaves, whose darker lines make them a perfect contrast to the softer petals. I love how the lower end of the leaves from a ‘V” which beautifully highlights the elbow. Never knew the elbow could look so…Sexy
Neo-Traditional Tattoo of Daffodils on Arm
I have to say, these botanical-themed tattoos are just wonderful. I like that the typical Neo-Traditional color palette gives this design a very grounded and charming look. The shading is beautiful with specks of light reflecting off the petals, stems and leaves. And the placement is also pretty awesome, right by the client’s side.
Black and Gray Tattoo of Daffodil Bouquet Over Biceps
Here comes a full bouquet of Daffodils for those of you who love this unique-looking flower. I really like how the petals are designed in this piece – just look at how cool the shading on each of them is. This piece is just as lovely as the artist’s account handle, IG: @inkfairyy!
Black and Gray Tattoo of Daffodils on Chest
This delicate piece is a gift to the eyes. I love that it’s placed right in the middle of this client’s chest, making this area a beautiful focal point. The fallen leaves are such a nice touch too, making the whole piece even more tender. Tender Yes, But Very Sexy Too!
Linework Forearm Tattoo of Daffodil with Circular Frame
This is such a unique piece. It caught my attention right away thanks to the striped, borderless circular frame around the Daffodil. The linework on the petals is delicate, while that of the circle is significantly more bold. This difference serves to add interest to the overall design.
Ornamental Color Arm Tattoo of Daffodils and a Dreamcatcher
We’ve come to the end of our list. If you’re looking for a delicate, feminine design, this one might be just right for you. I really like how the Daffodils are part of the dreamcatcher, as if to say they’ll drive all the bad dreams away. After all, they’re messengers of hope and joy!
