S/O help with tattoo!

So I was talking to my SO tonight and I think once we have the money I am going to get one. YAY! Hopefully I don't chicken out.

But I need a little help. I want to get it on my shoulder blade. I plan to get two flowers. One for each of my boys but I don't know what flowers to get. I want something to represent each of them. I would also like to get something to represent the baby we lost. Any ideas would be great.

Oh there birthdays are in August and October.

Thanks!

Well you could either go with flowers for their birth month or flowers with meanings that you like. For your lost baby a flower bud might be nice.

http://www.flowermeaning.org/

This site has meanings for flowers as well as birth flowers. It might be helpful. To me cherry blossoms represent stillbirth and miscarriage. At my daughter's funeral my reverend read a beautiful Buddhist poem that compared stillbirth to cherry blossoms. The cherry tree has flowers but never bears fruit. It is often a symbol of extreme beauty and how it fades because the blossoms are so short lived.

I was going to say using the birth month flowers too. I love the idea of the cherry blossom.

Thank you for the link! I am so bad at searching for things on the internet so I end up just asking here! LOL!
