This is a really great tattoo, dude! I love how cute the presentation is and how it plays with cliches like the rose framing; good job on that :)

Well, I should say something to make it veen better and I do have a few things I might do differently... I think the biggest issue is how the roses are planted, it doesn't have a strong sense of design to it and doesn't flow very well. Maybe a bit of big-medium-small wouldn't hurt? I'd love it if you filled like a sketchbook page just with how can design three to four simplified roses below a larger circle, I bet it would help you with that!

A minor thing that's actually sort of a question is: Maybe put a darker value somewhere? I've got no idea how that looks on skin, but if this were a normal painting, I'd put a somewhat darker value into the vat so that the creature stands out more. Can you do that with a tatoo?

Hope it helped!
