Sacred Rose Tattoo has been a Bay Area favorite since it opened its doors in 1998. Throughout the past eighteen years we have succeeded in providing beautiful, custom, quality tattoos to customers from all over the world. Our shop provides a friendly comfortable environment, with excellent customer service. We go above and beyond, featuring award winning artists with professional art degrees and a dedication to tattooing as an art form.

Karen Roze opened Sacred Rose Tattoo in 1998 with Jen Lee, who is currently at Tattoo City. After outgrowing that tiny shop, in the Mission district of San Francisco, Sacred Rose moved to a large and open space in Berkeley in 2006.

In 2010 Karen opened an additional location in Albany to provide clients an option for complete privacy. The Albany shop closed on May 1, 2016 with all Sacred Rose artists now working from the main University Avenue location.
