Talk about commitment. Swedish Hanna Berntsson got inked by Lotte Thorød with her favourite flower, the Avalanche+® rose. We're so honoured and immediately wanted to know why.
What makes you so fond of Avalanche+®?
Hanna: "It's my favourite rose. I think it is classic and has the ideal shape of a rose. Suitable for all occasions. Smells good too."
It is quite a commitment to get a tattoo of the rose, was there a special reason to get it now?
"I already have an Avalanche+ rose tattooed on my foot. I wanted more flowers on my arm besides what's already there. You can't have too much roses! So, I chose the rose because it is my favourite. And it means a lot to me: I used these roses in many of the decorations for my mother's funeral last year. It has a special meaning for me personally too."
Which is your favourite Avalanche rose, the white one or one of the pastel ones?
"I definitely love the white one."
Are you in the floral business yourself or just a fan of roses?
"Yes, I'm a florist. Have been working for about 12 years. With lots of your roses!"
Are you pleased with your tattoo?
"I'm very pleased. The rose looks very good as a tattoo."
