Rose The word will almost always inspire an image of the flower that has for eons now been looked upon as the symbol of love. This is so unless of course the person is smitten with the character essayed by the equally lovely Kate Winslet. As such is the popularity of the flower that it has also carved out a dominating presence in the tattoo circle.
Due its grace and beauty, tattoos of roses have always predominantly been a preferred choice with the female gender. It was one tattoo that the male gender found too feminine to their taste. That is until the roses were intertwined with other tattoos, decidedly more masculine, to create tattoos that were not only spell bounding but also quite macho. These combinations of tattoos with roses have seen an increase in the already popular rose tattoo among tattoo aficionados. If you are planning to get a colored rose tattoo, remember that each color of rose has a uniquely significant meaning. The red symbolizes love and beauty, white- purity and humility, black- death and farewell, blue-the unattainable and the impossible and so on. Choose the rose that best represents you. The tattoos depicted below might give you an idea as to what you are looking for.
