Simple Fineline Lily of the Valley Ankle Tattoo
Welcome to another list of awesome tattoos that will inspire you. Today’s list features lily of the valley tattoos.
First up, we have a simple yet beautiful tattoo. The artist clearly has a steady hand, as the linework in this piece is absolutely phenomenal. While a design like this would typically look good on the forearm, the placement of this tattoo is perfect.
Feminine Black and Gray Lily of the Valley Chest Tattoo
The chest is a popular location for flower tattoos, particularly among women. This well-executed black and gray lily of the valley design is reminiscent of illustrations found in plant identification books. The gray tones blend together beautifully, giving the tattoo a three-dimensional appearance. This is an ideal choice for those who appreciate micro black and gray tattoos.
Unique Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Outer Forearm
I appreciate the uniqueness of this lily of the valley tattoo, as it incorporates a blend of styles. The rough, sketchy outlines of the leaves are complemented by the clean lines of the stem and flowers, resulting in a lovely design to adorn one’s skin with.
Awesome Dotwork Rat and Lily of the Valley Calf Tattoo
This tattoo of a lily of the valley is probably one of the coolest designs I’ve had the pleasure of looking at. The style is reminiscent of a storybook lore, mixed with dotwork and blackwork. I adore the attention to detail, from the fur to the leaves. Everything about this piece is a feast for the eyes.
Illustrative Blackwork Lily of the Valley Calf Tattoo
Illustrative designs are among the coolest and most beautiful in the world of tattooing. Although this one is not solely an illustrative piece, there are hints of the style present. I love the varying line weights used to create detail and depth; it definitely gives this tattoo character. The placement is worth mentioning; the calf was a good choice since this is not a small piece, and it fills up the area beautifully.
Stunning Fineline Lily of the Valley and Fern Tattoo
The combination of styles, including fine line and dotwork, looks great together. I appreciate the smoothness of the dotwork shading in the fern, which complements the clean linework beautifully. Additionally, the fineline design is delicate and feminine, and the tattoo is cleanly executed, making it all the more impressive.
Lovely Black and Gray Lily of the Valley Tattoo On Woman’s Outer Forearm
The outer forearm is an awesome area to place a tattoo, especially because it’s a spot that is easy to show off, and I know I would definitely want to show off a piece as pretty as this one. I love the shading, it’s smooth and consistent and is done in such a way as to create depth, an important aspect when it comes to the black and gray style.
Beautiful Fineline Lily of the Valley Bouquet Tattoo
There is not a single bad thing I can say about this lily of the valley tattoo. Clearly, the artist is a bit of a perfectionist because there isn’t a single error, the lines are clean, the shading is smooth, and the placement is perfect. The gray tones are all in the right place because the artist is well-versed in light source and shading techniques, something any good black and gray artist should have a handle on. So, make sure your artist is good at black and gray before taking inspiration from this design.
American Traditional Lily of the Valley Tattoo On Guy’s Outer Forearm
The negative spacing in this design works really well with the solid blackout, even better is the fact that the style the design is in, American Traditional, also works amazingly with the blackout. Regarding placement, this design looks fantastic on the outer forearm, in a way it almost reminds me of armor, really cool!
Dainty Fineline Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Ribs
While this fineline tattoo is truly beautiful, the unfortunate part is the fact that because of how light the design is, there’s a high chance it will fade as it heals. When it comes to small tattoos, you need contrast if you want it to last, luckily after this piece has healed, the artist can touch up the tattoo. Regardless of the technical sides to things, how cute is that little bee though?
Cool Neo Traditional Lily of the Valley Tattoo
I adore Neo Traditional tattoos, especially when it’s flowers. The shape of the lily of the valley is perfect for this style because much like American Traditional, Neo Traditional focuses on simple and natural shapes. Regarding the technique, while the color is blended beautifully, the linework is slightly shakey near the bottom stem and leaves, but it’s not prominent enough that just anyone would see it. I like the placement on the triceps, it could also be the reason behind the shakey lines, this area is very soft and can be slightly more challenging to tattoo.
Gorgeous Feminine Peony and Lily of the Valley Dotwork Tattoo
The whip shading along with the clean linework is truly stunning, the softness of the shading against the solid outlines is very complimentary. I like that the artist added white highlights to the center of the flower and the tips of the lily of the valley, it draws your eyes to the more detailed areas while simultaneously helping you take the entirety of the design in. Lovely work by leah_b_tattoos.
Simple Lily of the Valley Triceps Tattoo
Keeping things simple isn’t always a bad thing, and here we have a super simple lily of the valley tattoo that’s not only done neatly but is positioned in the perfect place for something this size and style. Another really cool thing about simple designs is because they’re so simple, there’s nothing more you need to add to them to look good, it already looks good.
Awesome Linework Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Forearm
These linework figures that have flowers for hair always give off very feminine energy. The accentuation of certain areas such as the lips and arms is lovely and can be taken even further if the artist chooses to include the entire female form. What I’m trying to say is, these simple, yet detailed designs are awesome and suit anyone looking for a tattoo that represents female power and sexuality.
Micro Color Realistic Lily of the Valley Tattoo
Micro realistic tattoos are quite impressive, even more so when they’re accompanied by a lot of detail. I like that the artist used nothing more than color and their color blending skills to give this client something both precious and beautiful. As you can see, the client is a fan of micro color-realistic flower tattoos, the only catch is the fading, if you look at the existing lavender tattoo, you can see that it’s faded significantly. Nothing that a little touch-up can’t fix.
Bold and Bright Neo Traditional Lily of the Valley Forearm Tattoo
Neo Traditional designs are, like American Traditional, supposed to be bright and bold, and that’s exactly what this artist accomplished. I love how contrasted the colors are and how the lighter, brighter shades complement the dark green. The addition of the white in the flowers gives this piece the pop it deserves, absolutely phenomenal.
Uniquely Placed Lily of the Valley Tattoo
The placement of this design is quite unique, especially because the client doesn’t have any other pieces on her arm. What’s cool about the placement is the fact that it’s both visible and not, depending on what she wears. I like the softness of the colors or lack thereof, it’s very feminine.
Dandelion and Lily of the Valley Forearm Tattoo
I cannot get over how neat this tattoo is, the linework is absolutely incredible, it looks like a printer did this piece, not a hand. The composition of the design made it a perfect fit for the top of the forearm. So, not only does the artist have an insanely steady hand, but an even better eye for good placement, real nice!
Lovely Fineline Black and Gray Lily of the Valley Bouquet Tattoo
Creating a bouquet of flowers always looks really pretty, especially if the right flowers are chosen. Here we have a bunch of flowers, I can’t even tell you all of their names, but I can tell you that the artist chose right. The style suits the design well and in my opinion, the placement is fantastic, this piece would have also looked great on the ribs or side of the leg, so keep that in mind if you like the design but not the placement.
Gorgeous Abstract Lily of the Valley Biceps Tattoo
Are the colors in this tattoo not just the most stunning thing you’ve had the pleasure of seeing? I love how each color complements the next but what’s even more impressive is how bright the colors are. Obviously, no tattoo stays this bright as it heals, but there’s a clear indication that it will definitely heal nicely and hold a lot of its brightness over time. She’s one lucky client, not all skin absorbs color that well.
Impressive American Traditional Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Biceps
Another American Traditional lily of the valley tattoo, this time it’s got the popular American Traditional hand and red background. I like that the artist stayed true to the style, from the colors to the linework. The biceps was a good choice for placement, the shape of the design requires enough space as to not wrap around, and that’s exactly what the biceps offers, awesome!
Ultra-Unique Lily of the Valley Ankle Tattoo
There are many styles all mashed into one in this design. I like that the artist used dotwork, Neo Traditional, and blackwork to create this tattoo, all of these styles actually work really well together, as you can tell. The linework is consistent, the shading is smooth, the hints of color are well blended, and the tiny white highlights make this piece pop, what more do you need from a tattoo?
Awesome Wrap Around Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Arm
The tiny ornamental dots in this tattoo help bring the design together. I like the way it wraps around the arm like a bracelet, at least you know you’ll never have to wear jewelry again!
Adorable Micro Color Realistic Lily of the Valley Tattoo
I know that the artist wasn’t aiming for adorable when they did this micro lily of the valley piece, but I cannot deal with how small and cute it is. It’s also really impressive that the artist managed to get so much detail in such a small area. I hope that the white ink holds up over time, unfortunately, white is known to fade significantly, especially on pale skin.
Fineline Lily of the Valley and Butterflies Half-Sleeve Tattoo
I like the butterflies incorporated into this design, they create balance and a naturalistic feel. The best part about this tattoo, besides the overall design, is how big it is, it takes up most of the outer forearm giving the illusion that it’s a full sleeve, this will definitely turn heads, which is always a good feeling for ink collectors.
Black and Gray Lily of the Valley Tattoo On Man’s Biceps
This black and gray lily of the valley tattoo is so feminine and gorgeously done. The soft grays look like a pencil drawing against the skin. Placing the tattoo on the biceps was a good idea, it flows with the client’s subtle muscle curves, other good areas would be the forearm, outer forearm, and ankle, flat areas that won’t be warped.
Simple Fineline Lily of the Valley Tattoo On the Forearm
I really like the overall design, however, for some reason, even though it’s meant to look this way, it appears incomplete. I think that a few more lines in the leaves could fix that. Either way, this piece is really pretty and is the perfect tattoo to inspire your next one.
Pretty Micro Lily of the Valley and Bow Tattoo
We’ve come to the last tattoo on the list and isn’t it precious? This tiny lily of the valley tattoo is so cute and dainty, not to mention amazingly done. The addition of the little pink bow to hold the flowers together was a lovely little addition, truly well thought out.
We hope you found what you were looking for, and if not, remember, there’s plenty more where that came from. Until next time, happy inking!
