A dagger through a rose tattoo is a western classic symbol of union, male and female, but it resonates with so many cultures, its dichotomy, its interdependency, duality, yin and yang, intention and perception. Its a universal principle. this modern take with an antique air was drawn during some down time I had and offered via social media as a tattoo lottery. The client had to email and was randomly picked from all the emails received. The experience was unique and exciting, and I met an amazing person through it. This dagger and peony was done in one long session, start to finish, and it healed perfectly. I love this tattoo.
