135 Beautiful Rose Tattoos For Women and Men

Delicate shoulder rose tattoos


Tattoos don’t always have to be big and brash. Tiny, intricate designs are popular for women, especially in more unusual spots. For intricate detail such as this, you’ll need to visit a highly skilled tattooist – this kind of work is not for beginners!

Full back of hand rose


While we admit this isn’t a great snap of this tattoo you’ll notice the full rose across the back of the hand here, not quite down to the knuckles. The deep red of the rose is very compelling and matches the tattoos going up the arm well.

Large shoulder design


If you’re considering a large rose design and don’t want to go across the back like many people choose to do, you might like to consider placing it across the entire side of your shoulder, like this.

A yellow rose tattoo


While traditionally rose tattoos are done in red, if you have another type of rose that you prefer, then why not try a tattoo in that color, like this design here?

Rose on the underwear line


Underwear line tattoos can be very alluring, depending on the type of design and where it’s placed. This rose is classy and sexy all in the one go!

Grayscale arm rose tattoos


This rose design is the perfect size for this part of the woman’s arm. Notice that you can see it all in the one glance and it doesn’t wrap around, however it takes up the entire space. This rose has also been drawn in a style different to most rose tattoos.

Near the neck


While this placement isn’t for everyone, a small tattoo below the neckline doesn’t have to look tacky, as you can see by this single, small rose. We really love the darker shading on this one too. For something a little different, add a pop of color.

Stylized rose and dagger


This gorgeous piece has been done in the stained glass style and contains a huge amount of vibrant color. While many dagger tattoos can appear quite scary, this one looks arty and beautiful, especially with the colors used.

Wolf and roses


How much time do you have to dedicate to your piece? This brilliant torso piece would’ve taken hours on hours on hours in the chair and likely thousands of dollars to complete! The result? A colorful, amazing, intriguing tattoo.

Anchor and rose


Combine classic tattoo elements for your very on take on a classic tattoo, like this anchor and rose tattoo. Can’t decide whether you want the anchor more or the rose more? Why not do both together!
