One of its legends states that Vertumnus, god of vegetation, fell in love with the beautiful nymph Belides, who transformed into a daisy to escape the clutches of the heavy Vertumnus. It is a legend very similar to that of Apollo and Daphne, who also transformed into a plant (in her case the laurel) to flee from her pursuer.

Clearly one of the most appreciated designs for daisy tattoos is possibly one of these flowers in all its splendor, that is, in a realistic style. You can choose a color or black and white design, the important thing is that the detail is thought to a minimum, for example, with well-made shadows that give depth to the plant.
Daisy with cross
If you want something more spiritual and simple you can choose a tattoo that combines this flower with a religious symbol. If you do it with a cross, like the one in the photo, for example, you will be transmitting the Christian symbolism associated with the daisy (innocence and purity).
Daisy with other flowers
Daisies can work alone, but accompanied they are also wonderful. In addition to transmitting a lot of different meanings (according to each flower), a realistic style is highly recommended and, if you opt for color, someone who knows how to handle them well or it can be a bit chaotic.
Daisy tattoo on arm
Because of the shape of this flower, a piece on the arm is ideal. Opt for a rather large design, like the one in the photo, full of details and with a very personal twist (the daisy is upside down and is red) to make it a different and original tattoo.
Woman with wreath of daisies
For those who want a more imaginative design, daisy tattoos can be combined with other elements, for example, a woman. The success of the tattoo in the photo is that the style is very cool and consistent with the theme of the tattoo, since it is traditional, and the touch of bluish color of the flowers.

When combined with the margarita, a more original touch is given to the piece. There are other options that start from the same theme, for example, decorating the skull in the Mexican style.
However, sometimes the classics work best, and taking into account the meaning of the daisies, a simple design, in black and white, can convey humility and discretion. Plus, it looks great in small places like the wrist or ankle.
Flower with letters
Another very interesting option in daisy tattoos is take advantage of the stylized shape of the stem to accompany the flower with some letters or a phrase that has a very special meaning. The result is a delicate tattoo that looks good almost anywhere.
Daisy on the shoulder
How can you imagine flower tattoos on the shoulder are an ideal place. The shape of the flower is perfect and the shoulder will give it added depth, but it can also be combined with other elements (flowers, ferns) to build a larger and more appealing piece.
Daisy with heart
Finally, a daisy accompanied by a heart in the center is another example of the romantic symbolism of this flower. Choose a color other than white for the petals, as in the photo, to give an original twist to their meaning.
