Thinking about getting a sunflower tattoo? Sunflowers are a large inflorescence, meaning the head of the flower is made up of a bunch of little flowers, that have moved people throughout history and around the world. Always facing the sun, dancing in the window, accompanied with a lovely shade of bright yellow— What’s not to love about the sunflower?

Known for their phototropism (the way they respond to the sun), ancient myth attributes the symbolic meaning of sunflowers to constancy and loyalty. Perhaps that’s what makes them a perfect, uplifting gift.

Representing feelings of warmth, the sunflower has so many of the sun’s characteristics… Except you can get close to them without burning to death. Definitely a plus to the sunflower.
