shipkibeniThe dog rose here in Bulgaria is very commonly used in herbal medicine and in the kitchen (everybody remembers with nostalgia his/her grandmother’s dog rose jam), so my client wanted to get some dog rose fruits tattooed. Actually here it’s not called “rose”, so few people know that it is a rose indeed. That’s why I came up with the idea to combine the fruits and the beautiful blossoms on one branch and as a symbol of spring and autumn, the connected stages of existence, the cycle of life. My client wanted some Sacred geometry added to the design, so I think the Seed of Life that she finally chose contributes well to the idea of the tattoo. Thank you Beni!
