This is my third tattoo, done by the beautiful Stacey Ann @ Five Star Tattoo in Fremantle (Perth, Western Australia). It was done in two sessions and took about 4 hours all up.
It does have a special meaning to me, as it is a memorial tattoo. My grandfather passed away when I was too young to understand what had really happened to him, so my Mum started growing a breed of roses called “Blue Moon” roses in memory of him, and told me whenever I needed to see him, I could go out into the garden and he’d be there. They’re lilac-blue in colour, hence the colour on my tattoo, and the red rose represents me. I’ve moved out of home now, and this tattoo means I can always carry those roses with me, and he’ll always be there when I want to see him :’3
