This would be a perfect tattoo to represent my pending divorce. Even though I went through Thirteen years of darkness (called a marraige), it brought three beautiful rays of light (my three kids) into my life, which made it all worth while. It would be perfect if there were three little red rosebuds trying to bloom off of this dying rose's stem to remind me that through death there is also life.
I've been looking for a black rose design for a tatoo. I saw this and immediately fell in love with it. I am definately going to get this done, though first changing the drips to red to add my own personal touch to the design. Amazing work. Never thought I'd find a design that struck so close to what I had in mind. Keep up the good work.
No problem at all. It'll be a few months though, we're in the middle of a move from Spain back to the States and I'm a little short on cash at the moment, though with graduation coming up I might pull in enough to get it done soon. We'll see what happens though.
This is beautiful... I have a tattoo of a black rose (that it's the bomb ) But this one could be another one somewhere around my body... I'll ask permission if anything. Great drawing and coloring. I love it!
Thank you! I love drawing roses. They can be interpreted in so many ways. And people seem to love drawings and designs of roses so Wohoo! ^_^ You're entirely welcome to get it done if you like. I'd be honored - always am. Thanks again!
Hehe, thank you very much. The form of the leaves and petals was a bit off, I think. I wasn't actually trying to give it a perceivable depth, rather more of a flat pattern. Something similar to a smooth stone pattern. If I ever get around to it, that will be something I mean to rectify in this piece. Thanks for the comment!
