About

The Very Best In Tattooing & Fine Art Since 1998

Karen Roze’s Sacred Rose Tattoo is one of first woman owned and operated tattoo shops in the Bay Area and has remained a Bay Area favorite for over 20 years. In 1992, with her degree in fine art from CCAC, Karen began an apprenticeship at San Francisco’s legendary Picture Machine. After 6 years of hard work learning the business, Karen opened Sacred Rose Tattoo in San Francisco. Eventually the business would outgrow our original San Francisco storefront, and we moved to Berkeley in 2006. On October 1, 2018, we relocated to an even bigger space at 1960 San Pablo Avenue at the intersection of University Avenue.

Throughout the past 20+ years Sacred Rose Tattoo has succeeded in providing beautiful, custom, quality tattoos to clients from all over the world. Our shop provides a friendly comfortable environment with excellent customer service. We have award winning artists with professional art degrees and a dedication to tattooing as an art form. Our new San Pablo Avenue studio features six large work stations, a private station, and a large comfortable waiting area.

Shameful
I went here for my birthday today. 31 years and I'm still standing. As a transwomen if color, that's a big deal. This neck tattoo was to symbolize a real struggle for social political economical equality. Somebody failed to record the details of this session as a result my boyfriend is not gonna get his $100 deposit back. They knew it was a neck tattoo but the person he spoke with on the phone didn't pass this on to Gabe the person who was gonna do the tattoo. Instead they said it was a mix up with the paperwork, that and they try to pass it off as a last minute walking type of scenario. I don't like people trying to walk in my shoes, I don't need to hear how "hard" life is for people with a silly need tattoo. To me that just sounds like so unnecessary, did they even see what I look like? I'm in pain everyday of my life! This was my birthday. Thier mix up with the paperwork, thier mistake, cost us $100. I'm so hurt! This had to happen to me on my one and only special day of the year. Any other day people treat me so horriblly and they wonder why I'm so jaded, because getting out of bed when you look like this is NOT EASY! ????
