Dragon Rose Tattoo, Inked by Ziphora Dragon Rose Tattoo, Inked by Ziphora
A very painful experience for my first tattoo but I love it.
The dragon does have a meaning to me, the more I look at it. It represents my creativity, my art, as well as my middle name Rose my parents gave me. Dragons often represent strength, individuality, ferocity and fierce nature as well as many other varieties of personalities that are strong.

The colouring is not complete and I will return in a month or two when I feel I'm ready to have it coloured, having your ribs tattooed is very painful might I add. T.T

Wow, it's gorgeous! Now I'm totally jealous, I've got to wait another year at least before I can get mine. XD
The pain definitely looks like it was worth it, and boy, it's huge!

your first tattoo, and you went for the ribs?
oh, girl, youre a saint.


very beautiful though. having drawn something yourself and then having it tattooed on your body..the meaning to it can be no greater than if you tattooed it yourself. i went with a picture i found on google, edited a bit, for my first one. not saying i hate it, but the ones i did myself are obviously much more meaningful, even the one the tattoo guy drew himself. its something that no one else has, and never will.

i cant wait to see it colored.<3

Aww thanks, very painful experience for my first it was. Its not about the tattoos design, but the meaning, we both know that. You got tattoos to commemorate your pets, and that in itself is real reason. I merely merged a tribal design of a dragon with a rose ect, I like to reference always, you know that. :P

I'm going to have it coloured in a month or so. c:
