Peony flower tattoo with lavender color petals: This one stands out due to the choice of colors making it very striking and when you combine it with green leaves, it leaves you with a great visual impact.
Another version of this can be the peony flower which has petals that are tipped in lavender color. The subtle shading and also the addition of lesser or no foliage will make the design of the peony stand out even more making it immensely striking. The size of the tattoo and the amount of details in the flower will depend on where you have the design placed.
Elbow placement of the peony flower: The flower placement is no doubt a very awkward one and this may take away something from the design itself. But still you have to appreciate the thought and effort that the person has put in to get this design done at an awkward place.

Peony tattoo on wrist: So this is another possibility; getting a peony tattoo done on the wrist. It looks very striking and pretty when it is done in a smaller size with a lot of detailed work
Peony flower tattoo on the back: The back is a nice canvas to work on as far as body art goes. It is a fairly big area that is also quite smooth. The placement and the design will naturally depend on the person getting the tattoo.
