1. Hip tattoo

Up first is a cool hip rose tattoo. I like this location since it can be discrete and easily covered with clothes, but provides a pop of coolness depending on the outfit.

2. Everything comes up roses

This tattoo has a delicate rose with text underneath that says “everything comes up roses,” which is a unique positivity mantra to add to a rose theme.

3. Triangles and roses tattoo

I love this delicate rose tattoo with realistic roses and cool geometric lines. The inner wrist is also a great location for this fashionable design.

5. Bloom rose tattoo

This simple rose tattoo has the word “bloom” woven into the design as a leaf.

6. Realistic rose tattoo

Here is a realistic rose tattoo on the inside of the forearm. It is a classic red rose with a stem.

7. Two roses in color

Similarly realistic, here are two roses next to each other in shades of pink. It could be done as a simpler design by doing it with less leaves.

8. Two roses in black

Another spin on the two rose design, this time with the roses in black ink instead of color. I’d like this with a little less shading around the roses.

9. Rose vine tattoo

The next few designs are of roses on vines instead of individual roses. This rose vine tattoo is on the ankle and lower calf.

10. Rose vine on foot

Here is a rose on the vine design that goes over the top of the foot and around the ankle. The location of this tattoo matches the style of the vine well.

11. Rose foot tattoo

Here’s a different foot tattoo style. Instead of a vine, it incorporates two rose blooms into the tattoo.

12. Bloom where you are planted

This is one of my favorite rose tattoo ideas on the list. I love the phrase “bloom where you are planted” and think the style of the text matches the simple rose well.

13. Everything is rosy

Another spin on a “mantra” style tattoo, here is an inner wrist tattoo with a rose that says “everything is rosy.” I like the color in this design too.

14. Retro geometric rose design

This is a retro looking and fashionable rose in a geometric design. It feels like it has a bit of a retro national park vibe in the best way.

15. Thigh rose tattoo

In contrast to many of the small rose tattoos above, here is a big rose design on the upper thigh.

16. Simple circle and rose design

Here’s a very simple rose tattoo. It has a simple circle and with a tiny rose in it. This is so understated that you could get this design pretty much

17. Rose and hearts

This red rose is surrounded by a trial of colorful small hearts.

18. Thrive rose tattoo

This ankle rose tattoo includes the word “thrive,” to give it a little something extra. I think I’d like the word incorporated into the stem like a leaf as we saw with the “bloom” design above.

19. Geometric roses in rosy neutrals

Here’s a really cool and unique rose tattoo design that uses geometric shapes for the petals and leaves. I also like the rosy neutral shades on this one.

Here’s another foot tattoo but this time as a classic red rose.

Rose vines on calves

I like the idea of rose vines going up the back of the calves for a tattoo design. This example below gives the idea, but I think a more delicate vine would also look cool.

Finally, we close the list with another small rose tattoo on the wrist. This time the roses are with fine-line circles to look like a wreath. I like the inner wrist location for such a chic design.
