One of the most common design elements with roses is skulls. They look great together and were also popularised by famous rock n roll stars who would have similar imagery and tattoos.

The most popular meaning of a rose tattoo is about love. Tattoo designs based on this theme can show the rose in full bloom or as a bud that is about to blossom, or even as a bunch of roses. Rose tattoos can also symbolize faith when combined with things of religious significance.

Above is another common design element with the skulls that we mentioned earlier. This time however it’s a full skeleton up the side of their body. It’s not often you will see a skeleton of thise size tattooed on someone, but it definitely looks amazingly done.

We love black and red when it comes to tattoo designs. Other colours are not always necessary as you can see in the above example of two beautiful half sleeve designs involving roses.

Bird, roses and key

Behind the ear

Behind the ear is a popular spot for tattoos because people can often hide it with their hair. We can’t say the same however for neck tattoos which can be hard to hide and are a big commitment. It’s best to save tattoos for this spot that have deep meaning with that in mind.

Another shoulder piece

Simple and beautiful. Sometimes less is more with tattoos and you only need to have a design like this to have that beautiful and alternative look that a lot of guys and girls are going for these days.

Crown and diamonds

Diamonds are another popular tattoo design and we love how detailed this one is. It looks really cool how you can see parts of the rose through the prism of the diamond.
