Experts in flower design Bloom & Wild have seen people have been taking inspiration from their favourite blooms with some of 2022’s most purchased flowers such as peonies, chrysanthemums and lilies all making an appearance on the list.
It is understood 40 percent of British people have a tattoo and when it comes to floral designs, roses are the most Instagrammed, making up eight percent of all posts using the hashtag “tattoo”. Scarlett Johansson and Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga have all had roses inked on their bodies. Images of the particular flower have been shared on social media sites photo-video sharing more than 4,000,000 times.
It was also revealed the biggest spike in searches for bouquets of roses and rose tattoo designs is the week of Valentine’s Day, and whilst roses might have traditionally been given to women on the romantic day, Pinterest saw a 10 per cent increase in men saving images of rose tattoo designs.
Bloom & Wild’s Head of Brand, Jo Reason, explained: “Although most commonly associated with love and romance, roses hold a range of meanings depending on their variation, from gratitude and admiration to mystery and enchantment. They’re a classic for a reason and were our most sold flower on Bloom & Wild in 2022.”
