The rose originated in Persia where it was seen as a masculine symbol. Over the years, it has become associated with femininity, however, the flower is popular with both men and women. Although the rose tattoo carries a plethora of meanings today, it used to only represent love.
In fact, the rose tattoo gained popularity in the 1930s because sailors often got them inked on their bodies as reminders of their wives, girlfriends, and mothers. The general public later followed this trend, and it was common for men to get roses tattooed on their chests with their lover’s name incorporated into the design.
This customer had Chinese symbols on her lower back which she wanted covered up with something feminine and elegant. After a few ideas were discussed and various options were taken into consideration, it was decided that the rose would look great with some lace, filigree and some gems hanging off the lace which Nina Rademeyer free handed on the customer.
The client was extremely happy with the final result of her cover up and could not believe she will no longer have to look at her old tattoo anymore.
Nina Rademeyer completed this lower back cover up tattoo in a single session using the following: A Professional Rotary Tattoo Pen, Elite Cartridges, Dynamic Tattoo Ink, Fusion Tattoo Ink, Eternal Tattoo Ink, Green Soap and Hustle Butter and Free hand design.
