Do you have a favourite flower? Maybe it’s a lily of the valley? This flower looks beautiful and charming as a Lily of the valley tattoo.
Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis) is a woodland flowering plant. It has sweetly scented, pendent, bell-shaped white flowers borne in sprays in spring. It is native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia and Europe. But is considered generally invasive in parts of North America.
Due to the concentration of cardiac glycosides (cardenolides), it is highly poisonous if consumed by humans or other animals. Other names include May bells, Our Lady’s tears, and Mary’s tears. Its French name, muguet, sometimes appears in the names of perfumes imitating the flower’s scent.
In most cultures, this flower symbolizes purity, as well as sweetness and motherhood. This flower tattoo symbolizes birth and is one of those valley flowers that can suit both men and women.
Lily of the valley tattoos can be shown in different ways. Due to their interesting shape they look both good as black lines or a full colour design. You will find that they are quite intriguing and at the same time unique and feminine.
