its design is more common these days on regular furniture and such, however very expensive. :) But I really love this modern version , having it designed as a tatto  !

Awesome! I love rosepainting (Im norwegian) and am thinking of desingning a sleeve for myself. Good job, missing a bit more tone to the swirls, but thats just a matter of personal tastes tho.

Being norweigan myself, you can rest assured that those are exactly the types of floral designs that are used. they are also often painted on chests and carved into wood furniture. It's a very prominent style in Norwegian history.

actually, I think what you meant is the Norwegian thing called "rosemaling" or "rosepainting" directly translated and it's usually used on furniture, not coffins, though I guess some use it there too :3

very nicely done^^

Really cool. I've just been attempting rosemaling and was thinking it would make a really cool tattoo! And yup rosemaling is a decorative painting from the 18th and 19th centuries. Different designs echo the different personalities of the people and a lot of the times the musical culture of different regions of Norway.

cool^^ Actually, it was(is) painted on everything from wooden plates to chests, cabinets, cake-containers, etc.. if you google "Rosemaling" you'll se what I mean;) ("Rosemaling" actually means "rose-painting")
