Heavily-tattooed rocker Dave Navarro was inspired to get a unique tattoo after sitting next to a woman on a plane who showed him her concentration camp markings. The ex-JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist was so moved, he decided to pay permanent tribute to the stranger. He says, "I was on an airplane with a woman looking at my tattoos and she said, 'I have a tattoo, but not by choice.' "And she rolled up her sleeve and showed me the numbers on her arm. She had been in Auschwitz. "Her name was Rose and I got this tattoo to commemorate her. It says 'I Have One But Not By Choice' and there's a picture of a rose. It's the most powerful one I have."

I found out about your "rose" tatoo from Rose's daughter who happen to be with her on that plane. Her mother and my father grew up together so of course have similar stories. (by the way my father is still alive). I was so inspired by your actions. I just wanted to thank you for keeping the horror of those experiences remembered so that we should NEVER forget. I have known Rose all my life. Her daughters, myself and my 3 sisters grew up together and were told horrific stories of those terrible things our parents endured.ONCE AGAIN THANKS FOR THE TRIBUTE SO THAT WE MAY NEVER FORGET!!!!!!!
