Orchid Flower Tattoos & Masculinity

Orchid flower tattoos and masculinity
Men will go for orchid flower tattoos because it’s a symbol of the perfect man. Indeed, the Greek word “orchis” from which the name orchid is derived means testicles, which is literally man’s power. At one point, the purple orchid was slang for penis. With so much sexual symbolism, it’s no wonder that men have taken a liking for the orchid flower as a tattoo.
