A design that does not lack in the flower department, this design shows a new take on religious/mandala-inspired elephant tattoos.

The finishing touches of botanicals such as palm leaves heighten this alternative tattoo design.
An elephant was given the flower crowns of all flower crowns; this tattoo illustrates the mammal’s unofficial title of ‘King of the Jungle’.
