Roses, in general, represent beauty and delicacy.
When roses with their thorns appear in the design of a tattoo, they can represent the difficulties of life, a thorny path that must be followed to finally find a reward in a beautiful rose at the end of the road.
Red roses symbolize love, passion and are often tattooed to honor a loved one or to remember an important event in life.
