50 Rose Tattoos That Are Better Than All Others

If you were thinking that a rose tattoo may be in your immediate future, then you came to the right place. This list has been a long time in the making due to the fact that I wanted only the best of the best on display. High quality rose tattoos aren’t as common as you would think, so I had to search high and low but it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you 50 of the most spectacular rose tattoos in existence. Rose tattoos come in all different shapes and sizes. Pick a style that suits your personality and go from there. And of course, don’t forget to save and share you favorite designs.

Stages of bloom

Designs portraying the various stages of bloom are far from uncommon these days. But this example, with its whopping 7 stages of bloom, is by far the most extravagant I’ve ever seen. But of course anything less would be a disappointment from Dragon.

Electric pink

When you hear the words “pink rose tattoo,” you may be tempted to execute an overly enthusiastic eye roll in honor of what has become one of the most cliche tattoo designs a woman can get. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This is a pink rose tattoo. Yet somehow it’s so much more.


This list was a long time in the making. As you know, I take great pride in showcasing only the best designs in existence. And doing so, it usually takes months to put together a quality list. With that being said, out of all of the high quality designs on this list, this long-stemmed colorful creation might just be my favorite.

A floral ankle piece

Colorful designs have neither the class nor the staying power that a well executed black and grey ink piece has. Often times the most difficult decision to make during the design process is whether to go color or not.

A yellow rose

Here we have a small yellow rose set into a minimalistic heart. There are a lot of things that you can do to frame a rose but nothing is quite as spectacular as this heart-shaped frame.

A thigh piece

Aeri does roses with as much beauty as anyone else in the game. Her unique single color shaded fill is a trend that more and more artists are embracing. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, new and interesting trends always seem to emerge.

A tiny rose

There are more than a few tiny rose tattoos on this list, but none are quite as wonderful as this small pink blossom. Tiny tattoos with major detail are always a welcome sight.

An elegant side piece

If elegance is what you’re after, then anything by the renowned perfectionist Flower will leave you sorted. Tattooist Flower has been inking some of the most spectacular floral designs since Instagram opened its doors.

Purple and blue roses

Purple with just a hint of blue to be more precise. Here with have another splendid example of what Aeri can do with an ink and needle. If you’re ever in Koera, I highly recommend paying Latebird studio a visit.

A mandala rose

Mandala flowers are about as gorgeous as roses. So when they’re combined, well, you get the picture. Oh wait, there’s an actual picture here for you to gaze upon in appreciation. Just look at that shading!
