Roses - wrong or right way?

Recommended Posts

I've read a couple threads on the subject of roses and I'm just curious, do you guys feel there's a right or wrong way to draw or tattoo them? I've seen some really in depth roses and then there's the simpler looking traditional ones with less pedal

Reason I ask is because I've got a traditional rose on my arm with stem and a girl in class asked me if it was a hibiscus (in a snooty attitude like "whys that on your arm") which I guess it's not a realistic rose, but rather representational which is how the artist put it.

I apologize if this is a dumb question or anything.

The rose that Ron Wells just did to go with my gypsy is definitely more "wrong way" than the one on the OP. At first I wasn't sold on it but I've really come to like it and appreciate it's uniqueness.

Sorry, I'm embarrassed I brought the subject away from labias and back on track.

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
