Rose tattoos

Rose tattoo designs Rose Tattoo Designs - The Rose in the West represents what the Lotus does in the East. A symbol of love, but especially of a love that is pure. Because of the rose's beauty, scent and shape, it is the ultimate floral symbol. Of all the flower tattoo designs, the rose is still the most popular and the most requested. Interestingly, the rose is nearly as popular with men as it is with women.

A symbol of passion, chastity, and purity, the rose reigns supreme as the most beloved of flowers. The gift of a single red rose says, "I love you" while a thornless rose declares "love at first sight". Yellow roses are for joy, white for reverence, light pink for sympathy and admiration, and orange for enthusiasm. In medieval times, the white rose was the symbol of virginity.

The Greek goddess, Aphrodite, is associated with its rising into being, literally springing from the sea foam as she" rose" up out of the waves.

Sappho blessed the rose as The "Queen of Flowers", but prior to that the Greeks knew it as the "King of Flowers". For the Romans and the Greeks, roses represented beauty and love.

Early Christians associated the rose with their Roman enemies, hence it became a mark of scorn, but eventually it came to symbolize the survival of persecution. Later yet, won over by its fabulous beauty, Christians adopted the rose as a symbol of the miraculous. At least a dozen saints have their names linked with roses, like Saint Therese of Lisieux, also known as Saint Therese of the Roses. The Virgin Mary herself is called "The Mystical Rose". The first "rosary" is said to have consisted of roses, then, later, rose-carved beads.
