Rose tattoo meaning

Every tattoo artist will tell you that a rose tattoo is the most beautiful flower tattoo to draw. It is because it allows them to play with shades, colors, and sizes. But the meaning behind rose tattoos is various. 

This rose tattoo design is available here.


Rose tattoo can symbolize the highest level of passion, a love won or love lost. Oftentimes, the color of the rose is considered to be just as important to its meaning. For example, pink roses can symbolize innocence, a new love, or the remembrance of a loved one.

A black rose tattoo can mean the loss of a loved one, in a way that represents the compassion of the flower along with the dark bleakness or reminder of death, though not always so somber as much as a memorial.

The most common rose tattoo - red rose tattoo, symbolizes passion and a thirst for true love.
