A larger drawing, including for example several roses united in a bouquet, will find its place on one shoulder or even both, or even on the back.
If you prefer to locate it on the coast, near the chest, you can choose the model you want, more or less large, which will then eventually protrude towards the back.

Which pink tattoo to choose?

But you can also opt for a simpler version, without colors or filling, maybe even with geometric contours for an ultra graphic look.
Your pink tattoo can be accompanied by a first name or other motifs for an even more symbolic result, such as a skull and crossbones to evoke a new start in life, or a clock without needles to signify eternal love.
Nothing also prevents you from choosing a sentence that is particularly close to your heart to compose the stem of the rose. Let your imagination run wild!
You will find inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest, but also of course in folk tales and stories like Beauty and the Beast with its famous rose under a bell, or the rose so dear to the eyes of the Little Prince of Saint-Exupéry.
