Realistic Black And Grey Rose Forearm Tattoo


This realistic black and grey rose forearm tattoo was done by Nina Rademeyer, head artist at Zen Ink Professional Tattoo Studio in Johannesburg South Africa. Roses have always been a popular tattoo choice for all sorts of people and reasons. Not only do they look great but it’s more about what they represent to each individual who chooses to get roses tattooed on their body. In tarot, the rose is considered a symbol of balance. The beauty of this flower expresses promise, hope, and new beginnings. It is contrasted by thorns symbolizing defense, loss and thoughtlessness. Both males and females embellish their bodies with this symbol. Different color roses have different meanings and depending what other elements are added to tattoo design it can also change the meaning and symbolism quite drastically.

The customer who now wears this great looking tattoo wanted something that represented loyalty and a deep love and affection for his parents. Nina used the clients original idea and design but also added some of her own freehand skills to give this forearm tattoo more originality and character. The overall tattoo took around 4 hours to complete, leaving ample room for the rest of the elements and ideas that the client will be looking to add over his next few sessions. This customer was absolutely amazed to see what his tattoo looked like after his first session and could not stop smiling about it.

Nina Rademeyer completed this realistic rose forearm tattoo using a Professional Rotary Tattoo Pen, Dynamic Tattoo Ink, Dynamic Grey Wash, Stencil Stuff and freehand design.
