Rose & Butterfly Tattoo Ideas


Tattoos seem to have become the new beauty mark, no longer relegated to bikers, sailors and criminals. It is now easier to name someone who has one than someone who does not. However, real tattoos are permanent, so careful thought should go into the design and where you want it. Dissatisfaction is listed among the most common problems with tattoos according to WebMD, so choose your design carefully.

Rose Designs

  • Roses are a classic, feminine choice for tattoo designs. They show up often in flash, or sample designs displayed on the walls in tattoo shops. They are often combined with hearts, daggers, or both. Crosses also go beautifully with roses. These are lovely combinations, especially with a name. If you are thinking of honoring or memorializing a loved one with your tattoo, roses in any of these combinations are a beautiful choice.

Butterfly Designs

  • Another feminine tattoo standard is the butterfly. There are as many designs as there are real butterflies. They range from tribal designs in basic black to elaborate, colorful ones. A unique and intriguing option is to incorporate eyes into the wings. Tiny butterflies resting on top of one or both feet is another popular option for butterfly designs. If you are lady considering a lower-back tattoo, a large, nicely shaped butterfly could accentuate your build.

Rose and Butterfly Combinations

  • For a truly feminine look, you might consider a design incorporating both roses and butterflies. A lovely, delicate butterfly resting on a rose is a simple but elegant option. Another idea for those considering a lower-back tattoo is a vine of roses with butterflies resting on them. This same design works just as well around the wrist or ankle. Flash in tattoo shops will no doubt depict even more combinations. These two elements can also work well when incorporated into designs that include daggers, hearts and crosses. The only limit is your imagination.
