Have you always wanted to get a white rose tattoo? We have some fantastic tattoo ideas that you have to check out.
Did you know that white roses are called the “bride’s flower” because of their popularity in traditional weddings?
White roses represent purity and innocence. They also represent new beginnings and make a perfect present for someone getting married or starting a new journey.
Over time, white roses have become a symbol of love, but unlike red roses that represent passionate and sensual love, white roses represent innocent and committed love. They can also mean death.
Getting a white rose tattoo is a great idea and can have different meanings depending upon individual perception. A white rose tattoo can be a great way to express your feelings through body art. If you’ve wanted to get a white rose tattoo or are planning to get one as a tribute to someone you love, we have ten great white rose tattoo ideas you’re love depending upon your style.

Some of the most popular designs are traditional rose tattoo, rose neck tattoo, rose forearm tattoo, rose shoulder tattoo, or dead rose tattoo.
Golden White Rose Tattoo
This delicate white realistic rose tattoo is a piece of artwork. The artist has beautifully designed a white rose without even using much of the colour. This cool golden tattoo has intricate details with careful shading that makes it stand out.
A golden rose can have various meanings. For some people, it can signify new beginnings like first love or sad emotions like lost love.
But you want to keep a few things in mind that golden ink fades away really quickly, and an intricate tattoo like this would cost you a fortune. After fading, the ink would look dull, and the tattoo would not stand out as much. A tattoo like this would be great for someone who has a big event coming or can afford to get regular appointments with the artist to touch up the tattoo. This tattoo would look great on your shoulder.
You can opt for a smaller, daintier version that would look great on your wrist or lower leg. To view more of the tattoo artist’s work, click on the link above or check out the tag mentioned below the link.
White Rose Outline Tattoo
This delicate white rose tattoo is a fantastic choice for someone who has been looking forward to getting a giant tattoo but at the same time doesn’t want anything too bold or colourful. This tattoo artwork is exquisite and would look great with all your outfits.
The simple white outline almost makes it look heavenly, although you must know that working with white ink can be pretty tricky, as white ink is etched deep into the skin, it gets mixed up with skin tones and doesn’t stand out as much.
Getting a white outline tattoo can be a good choice for people with pale skin tones as the white pigment would not be toned down by the colour of the skin, whereas it can appear a dull beige colour on deeper skin tones. Avoid getting a hand poke tattoo etched into your skin in white colour and prefer a machine-made tattoo like the one in the picture, as hand poke tattoos would fade more quickly.
This tattoo would look great on your back, as shown in the post above, on the back of your upper arm or your leg. To view similar tattoos by the artist, click on the link above, and do not forget to drop some encouraging comments.
