But Balazs Bercsenyi, former resident tattoo artist at Bang Bang NYC, took the art one step further and created a beautiful motion tattoo on 70 strangers in Hungary to tell the ultimate love story, "a life of a rose."
The inspiration behind the motion tattoo highlights a cycle of life in all forms with an underlying purpose to "create a sense of oneness, where the lasting outcome is in being part of something that is bigger than the individual." Bercsenyi explained, "I wanted the story to evolve around a rose because it is such a beautiful symbol and metaphor of love. It represents the cycle of life, when the rose is born and then used as a tool to uplift and inject expression for a human being. The rose is a perfect example of how we should live our lives, to bloom and give our gift away." Ahead, get a closer look at the breathtaking motion tattoo.
