All about: Ideas for black rose tattoos

Black roses are a popular choice of tattoo. You can make yours a bit different by thinking of other designs. This article will look at different ways in which you can make your black rose tattoo special.

Your tattoo

The quality of your tattoo roses will depend on your tattooist. They are present to offer you help and advice, but they can be busy people who need to get your tattoo done in order to move on to the next customer. This means that you should go to a tattooist with your rose tattoo designs in mind. It might change as you discuss it with your tattooist, but you should have a picture or sketch of what you like to give you a starting point. What type? Roses are a traditional type of tattoo, but they can still be drawn in different styles. Japanese roses look different to old school style roses. A Celtic rose will be designed in that particular style perhaps with some knot work as part of the design. Tribal tattoos have been the most popular type of tattoos in recent year, and the style can give black tribal roses tattoos a cool edge.

Different styling

There are hundreds of different types of roses, and you could look in a flower book to check that you want to go with the traditional rose type. There are thornless types and large bloomed flowers. Roses have cool names, and you might find one that appeals to you and is significant for your tattoo. Other colours Does your rose have to be all black? You could alternate petals with another colour, like red, for a dramatic effect. You could also have the petals patterned rather than in block. Think of black and white patterns that would look cool like a chess board pattern or an ornate fleur de lys styling. Added effects To add effect to your tattoo, think of having shadowing around the edges. It is usually done in grey, but you could choose a coloured outline to offset your black rose. Other details could be used like flames, stars or sky to make your black rose stick out from a coloured background.
