Can this one go in the strangest requests section?

Any clue what type of flower it is or close to?

Definitely not a lily; lily and iris have petals in sets of 3. Maybe an apple blossom-- http://www.50states.com/flower/picts/arkansas.jpg --or something else in the rose family

Cherry blossom - apple blossom has a little different stamen - but either one.

Thank you all! I was thinking some type of tree blossom (that looked like a branch...but I kept getting sidetracked by what they were on). I'm going to forward that link you offered Karen421 and see if that is acceptable. I hope so so I can delete that freakin' foot image.

Thanks all of you!

The Branch says it could be a blossoms. There are so many varieties of plants out there, but I dont think that lilies have more than one flower in a branch.
What is confusing is the fact that they did the petals a bit too pointy, but there are many specimens you never know if there's one that looks like that.

but I didn't think plumeria had stamens like that.

I told them before coming to ya'll that I thought they were fantasy flowers (someone's spin on an actual flower). It's a tattoo for goodness sake...they're artists and put their 'touch' on everything they do, right?

lilies definitely can grow more than one to a stem(depending on the variety). One (she) is insisting it's a lily. I mentioned the branch thing ...my first thought was the cherry blossom but I thought the petals were too pointy for that one. Matter of fact, until seeing the image Karen421 shared, I thought the petals of the cherry blossoms were stubbier too. I think those are the most elongated cherry blossoms I've seen to date (I don't get out much either soooooooo...).

Yes lilies can, I didnt say that right. I meant in the way they are done in the picture. At leas the lilies I have dont grow like that. But God knows, there are so many specimens out there!
