The Story Behind the Rose

This rose isn’t just a pretty design; it’s a symbol of a profound journey. It was inked on someone who was once set to be married, their love immortalized in the form of matching tattoos on their ring fingers. However, life had different plans. Just weeks after their engagement, the person found themselves standing in a courtroom facing their once lover. A protective order was being sought, a measure to ensure safety after a heartbreaking incident where the rose’s owner was stopped from breathing during a heated argument.

The contrast between the delicate petals of the rose and the strength it represents is remarkable. A symbol of beauty growing from pain, a reminder that even in the midst of adversity, we have the power to rise. Read more in issue #1.
