A rose has many meanings. The common meaning of rose tattoo designs, especially those without thorns, is love. When your rose tattoo has thorns, it means that you have experienced hurt, struggle, or tragedy in some aspect.

If you fell in love with your spouse or life partner, the perfect color for your rose is purple. The purple rose tattoo meaning is enchantment and love at first sight. Combine with this an element from how or where you meant and it is the beginning of your journey together.

An interesting meaning of rose tattoo designs with closed buds is that there is a mysterious person in your life or that you have a mysterious personality because the inside is hidden. The background and/or colors chosen for the piece will determine the mood of the mystery. Black is a bad or troubling mystery while pink, peach, or red can mean a healthy or loving type of mystery.
