I was thinking of getting a cherry blossom tat on my arm/shoulder, with just some wind and clouds. Maybe something like this:

Is that cool for a guy? I have a large koi on my leg with cherry blossoms, and I was just trying to add something to compliment that design.

negative,

cherry blossoms are held in high regards by he samurai, in-fact many japanese motifs contain lots of cherry blossoms, because of the fact that they die on the tree and fall three days after blooming.

being cut down at the peak of your life, in pure beauty. the life of a warrior.

there are stories of the flower monk as one of the 108 Heroes of the Water Margin. The book, simply called the Suikoden in Japanese which is the basis of traditional japanese tattooing.

not gay, gangster.

 There are lots of good flower themes; the Japanese ones are cool like the aforementioned sakura, peonies or chrysanthemums....I like the maple leaves too.

In americana the rose is more popular; I've seen it in hundreds of tats.

Its your body, get whatever you like.
You really shouldn't worry about what anybody thinks is "gay" when considering a tattoo for yourself.

That's cool and all...


...but in modern times covering yourself with colorful flowers will make you look like a fag and you'll spend a large portion of your life having to retell the samurai story to people calling you a fag.

Not that they don't look cool...but if the goal is to NOT look gay...pretty flowers may not be the way to go.

The fact that you're asking means it crossed your mind for a reason...and you won't be the only one.


Still, get whatever you want bro. I do think they're kinda cool, just not for me.
