The Hawaiian flower, more precisely the hibiscus flower, is so beautiful and has such deep meanings. If you still don’t know what it is, you will surely recognize when I say that it is the flower that a Hawaiian girl sometimes wears behind her ear. Given the beautiful nature of the flower, Hawaiian flower tattoos have become so popular with tattoo lovers too. They do not belong to the group of tattoos that are so popular that you will see them a lot like the rose and butterfly tattoos. But they are certainly still very popular and they are more unique. Most importantly, the tattoo looks best when it suits the person’s character. So let’s take a look at the best Hawaiian flower tattoo designs and their meanings and see if they suit you.
Meanings of Hawaiian flower tattoos
First of all, the hibiscus flower has the meaning of the perfect woman. It is also a symbol of beauty and elegance. Some said it also has the meaning of a young woman.
There are many colors of hibiscus flowers. Each of them also has some specific meanings. Whites have an additional meaning of purity. Yellow represents luck and happiness. Purple stands for knowledge and mystery. Of course, red means love.
Different colors of Hawaiian flower tattoo designs
First of all, I want to show you that Hawaiian flower tattoos can look amazing with many different colors. The pictures above show you what it looks like in red, pink, yellow, purple, blue, and black and white. Different colors have different meanings and a different style that suits a completely different personality.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the upper back
The Hawaiian flower tattoo on the upper back is the most popular idea for this tattoo. Since a large Hawaiian flower looks good and attractive, the upper back seems to be the part of the body that you naturally want this to be on. A large red or pink hibiscus flower on your upper back can look amazing if you have a very sociable personality.
Hawaiian flower tattoo on the lower back
A Hawaiian flower tattoo design that extends horizontally across the lower back usually looks more stylish and less feminine than a large one on the upper back. You can easily show off your cool flower tattoo on your lower back by wearing low jeans.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the thigh
Having the Hawaiian flower tattoo on your thigh is not a very popular idea. But as you can see from the example above, some Hawaiian flowers look cute and unique. It is very suitable for tattoo lovers who only like to flaunt it in summer when they are wearing hot pants and bikinis.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on Calf
On the other hand, the tattoo on the calf is much more popular. You can’t even hide it with a midi dress. But if you enjoy showing off your tattoo something like the above design definitely looks cool.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the ankle
I know there are many tattoo lovers out there who love a subtle one on their ankles. Having a small Hawaiian flower tattoo on your ankle is a nice idea that will make you beautiful but stay subtle. Some people like a bigger red one on the ankles, but personally I prefer a small, subtle one.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on Foot
A large Hawaiian flower tattoo looks kinda good on your foot. I consider feet to be one of the most stylish places to get tattooed.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the wrist
The Hawaiian flower tattoo on the wrist usually looks refreshing and cute. The fact is, not many people have wide wrists so there is not much they can do with it. A simple little one works best.
Hawaiian Flower Bracelet Tattoo
With other symbols, a thick armband tattoo on the wrist sometimes works, with Hawaiian flower armband tattoos they usually look better than thin and elegant bracelets.
Hawaiian Flower Ankle Bracelet Tattoo
Speaking of armband tattoo, how can we miss the ankle armband tattoo. I think a Hawaiian flower ankle bracelet tattoo looks even more stylish than one on the wrist.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the entire left or right side of the back
A couple of large Hawaiian flowers that span the entire left or right side of your back can look absolutely stunning.
Hawaiian Flower Sleeve Tattoo
The Hawaiian flower tattoo sleeves are definitely not for everyone, they are more extreme and look more rebellious. For many people, their daily work will probably be the biggest obstacle for them to get tattoos like a sleeve tattoo or a half sleeve tattoo. From an artistic point of view, they just look amazing.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the shoulder
For those of you who want a large but smaller design than the top back design, you can consider a relatively smaller Hawaiian flower tattoo on the shoulder. You can have one on the front, back, side, or one that extends across the front and back of your shoulder.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo on the hip
Having one on your hip is a good idea when you have a slim, curvy waist that you can flaunt. A yellow Hawaiian flower tattoo on your hip like the picture above will make you look sexy and stylish.
Hawaiian flower tattoo on hand
Having a Hawaiian flower tattoo on your hand isn’t that popular, but having a small, subtle one on your hand is actually quite stylish and unique.
Hawaiian flower tattoo on the neck
If you want a nice tattoo that you can cover with your long hair, a small Hawaiian flower tattoo on the nape of your neck is for you. On the other hand, adding one on the side of the neck will look stylish.
Hawaiian Flower Band Tattoo
Unlike an armband tattoo, which is usually thinner and done on the wrist or ankle, a Hawaiian flower ribbon tattoo is usually thicker and is done on the arm, calf, ankle, or thigh.
Hawaiian flower tattoo on forearm
A black and white Hawaiian flower tattoo can be very noticeable and stylish on the forearm.
Up to this point, we’ve looked at a lot of amazing Hawaiian flower tattoo ideas. We looked at designs in different colors, different styles, and on different body parts. Now I am going to introduce you to some of the best tattoo ideas that combine Hawaiian flowers with other symbols like turtle, butterfly and dolphin.
Hawaiian Flower Turtle Tattoo
Having a simple turtle tattoo may seem too cute to many people’s tastes, but when you pair the turtle with a Hawaiian flower it can be a very stylish tattoo. The turtle and flower blend in perfectly with the turtle surrounding the flower, making it a unique tattoo. Turtle tattoo has the symbolic meaning of strength and longevity. The Hawaiian flower turtle tattoo represents long lasting and passionate love.
Hawaiian flower with butterfly tattoo
Butterfly tattoo in itself is one of the most popular tattoo ideas among tattoo lovers. Butterfly has a symbolic meaning of beauty, grace and the power of drastic change. If you want to learn more about some nice butterfly tattoo ideas and meanings, please click the link and read one of our previous articles. A Hawaiian flower with butterfly tattoo looks great because, of course, they look great together. I mean they appear together in nature, why not with a tattoo. The butterfly adds a small detail to the tattoo that seems to add extra power to the symbolic meaning of love and beauty.
Hawaiian flower with dolphin tattoo
Hawaiian flower with dolphin tattoo is not a popular idea at all. Many people think dolphins are a little too cute for tattoos. But there is a group of people who love the underlying meaning of a dolphin. It is believed that dolphins have the magical energy to heal the mind and soul of humans. It is also a simple one from peace and intelligence.
Hawaiian flower with skull tattoo
Hawaiian flower with skull tattoos are definitely those who love rebellious look. The joining of the Hawaiian flower and skull is like joining two very opposite feelings, while the first represents love and beauty and the second represents death and hate. It’s like telling people that they love or hate me.
Hawaiian Flower Tattoo Cover Up
Since a Hawaiian flower tattoo usually looks very good as a large tattoo that covers much of your skin. There are many people who use Hawaiian flower tattoos to cover up old tattoos that they no longer like or that have failed.
Finally, I shared the best Hawaiian flower tattoo ideas and designs that I could possibly collect. We talked about different colors, different styles, different positions to put on the tattoos, and different symbols to combine with the hibiscus flower. Many of these designs are more beautiful and feminine while others are more stylish and unique. And as I always believe, a good tattoo for one person can be good for another. A good tattoo fits the person’s character and enhances the person’s original beauty.
