There are few flowers more beautiful, more scented or more symbolic than a rose. Their deep red petals, curving seductively above a stem of harsh thorns, are given to lovers and dear friends as a sign of love.
On stage, on screen and in the street, you will have seen many examples of women with rose tattoos. You will therefore appreciate the huge array of different rose tattoo designs to choose from. They can be whatever size you want.
Roses are an excellent tattoo to have inked on your lower back. The femininity of the petals, along with their color and beauty are a perfect accompaniment to the sensuous curves of your lower back. It is a personal choice whether their stems with sharp thorns are included in the design, but I would recommend that they are for two reasons.
The first is that the stem can provide some curve to cover the width of the tattoo. Roses (whether colored or not) can populate the length of the stem or could be located purely in the centre, in the small of your back. If you choose not to include a stem, you will be restricting the size of your tattoo, but if you are after a smaller tattoo on your lower back, this is one of the rose tattoo designs you might want to consider.
The second is that the thorny stem is a beautiful contract to not only the soft elegance of the rose, but also to the soft femininity of a very tender and private area of your body. It shows that you are strong yet feminine.
Many people are undecided as to whether their rose tattoo should incorporate color. Obviously, it’s your tattoo, but I would suggest that color be kept to a minimum. It’s much more beautiful to see a colorless stem accompanied by beautifully stark colored petals. If you are having more than one flower-head, you might consider designs which limit the color to appearing on just one of the flower-heads. Less can be more.
