      Thank you all for taking the time to drop by and read this article on daffodil tattoos. Alastar, good question. The daffodil is simple in design. I really like the one style that has the seedings blowing. Other then that, there really isn't a lot behind the designs in this article. I like the yellow, but I would rather see yellow shading then coloring. KJ, thanks for a wonderful comment. Bill, I have over 200 articles on tattoos.

      I love daffodils, such a vibrant sunshiny colour, and the first sign that spring is on the way. Is there any wonder that the cancer charities have chosen it as their emblem, it is a flower for life and new beginings.

      Okay lyric , please don't tell anyone AP checked these out lol. You know I try to be truthful commenting on the tat series; so, despite many of these being very pretty, there just doesn't seem to be a high level of artistry on some of them as compared to some of the other styles. What you think bro?
