Roses represent love. The red rose was often tattooed on a 'Ladies Man' in the old days because red roses can look like a vagina and it was an old tattoo code for that. Nowadays they just mean love in general - but it's still considered bad luck by many to tattoo a dead rose as that is supposed to make the tattooed person unlucky in love ( love will always die).
