Rose tattoos are among the most popular among both men and women. A rose in itself makes a beautiful tattoo, but roses are often incorporated to bigger more complex designs. Realistic styles as well as old school and new school styles are seen on skin everywhere. Roses represent so many different things like love and desire. The color of the rose can also change the meaning. Yellow roses generally mean friendship. White can either mean death or purity depending on the culture. Red usually means love. The rose is a great tattoo for any part of the body.
