January Birth Flower

Carnations and snowdrops are the two birth flowers most commonly associated with January.

What Does a Carnation Tattoo Mean?

A carnation tattoo is most often associated with positive feelings of love, affection, and admiration. These strong feelings help it as a design, used in a college or as a single minimal tattoo. They are heavily linked to notions of motherly love, as in Christianity it was said that when Jesus died on the cross carnations grew from where the Virgin Mary’s tears fell.
The carnation is January’s birth flower – and is also linked to the Sagittarius Zodiac sign – so can also be the perfect ink to symbolize these periods during the year. The Red carnation is also traditionally used to commemorate a woman’s 1st wedding anniversary.

Carnation Color Meaning

Carnations display great variety in their shading:
Dark red carnations offer love and affection.
A pink carnation signals gratitude.
A Light red carnation is a bloom to depict admiration.
A white carnation flower represents innocence, purity, and luck.
A Yellow carnation means disappointment.
Purple carnations are linked to impulsiveness and volatility.

Most colors are positively associated with strong feelings of positivity and thankfulness and can be utilized in anything from a tiny carnation tattoo to a larger combination piece of ink.
