There's a reason why rose tattoos have prevailed for so long: The intricate delicacy of the petals leave a lot of room for artistic interpretation, and as far as symbols go, it doesn't get much more classic or elegant. If you're worried about being too cliché (or basic, the horror), you can rest assured that there are actually a lot of ways to breathe new life into the classic tattoo design.

Whether that means tiny, cartoonish renderings or rosy takes on the watercolor tattoo and geometric tattoo styles, we've got you covered. Read on for 19 of our favorite unique rose tattoo designs.
