16 Mesmerizing Lilac Tattoo Designs To Celebrate Spring

Lilac tattoo designs, like almost any floral tattoos, are popular among woman because of their beauty, delicacy and their symbolic meanings.

Being the first flower to bloom when temperatures rise, lilacs principally symbolize spring. They also have other meanings, most related to expressing love or affection.

Although lilacs get their name from their most popular color, they also come in a variety of shades that have inspired a specific symbolism.

Of course, a lilac tattoo can mean anything you wish, but if you want to consider the popular symbols of the lilac flowers, you will find below the most important meanings inspired by its different nuances.

While the light purple shade of the lilac flower is associated with the first love, the dark purple (which is often an alternative to black) is related to mourning or remembering somber anniversaries.

The pink color of the lilac symbolizes love and strong friendships. The blue shade is related to happiness and tranquility and the white color of this flower means purity and innocence.

The dark red shade of the lilac flower is associated with passion and love, but it also reflects the enjoyment of being alive, especially after surviving a bitter experience.
