Sacred Rose Tattoo
1728 University Ave, Berkeley, CA 94703
I checked two stars because the extremely brief interactions I had with the owner were very positive. However, whatever you do, don't get a tattoo from Shotsie!
This guy reminds me of an extremely irritable alcoholic who hasn't had his first drink of the day, yet. He was arrogant, and he badgered me and all I did to deserve it was to be polite and give him a big tip. I guess me and my tatto weren't good enough for him; maybe you will be, if you really want to find out.

I first learned about Sacred Rose Tattoo in 2006 and knew it was going to be where I got a tattoo!
The owner, Karen Rose, is an amazing and talented artist. I'm a huge fan of her work in general, but the work that she's done for me never ceases to get a reaction from people who see it. She really captured the essence of what I was looking for and created a masterpiece. I highly recommend booking an appointment with her.
I've seen the work of the other great tattoo artists there and I think that you can't go wrong with any of them really. It's great to find a tattoo shop with so many talented people. I can't imagine getting a tattoo anywhere else now.
I've also been to gallery openings at Sacred Rose's SR2 gallery and hope to go to more in the future. It's a great chance to check out art while also having a chance to browse their tattoo books for inspiration when you come in to get your tattoo.

I drive 4 hours round trip to get tattooed at Sacred Rose. I would drive 10 hours with no hesitation because the shop is that good! I have been getting tattooed by Karen Roze for about a year now. I can't put into words how beautiful and unique my tattoos are. I constantly get complements on them! The shop is filled with positive energy,friendly people and beautiful art!

Just got my second tattoo from Karen at Sacred Rose, and I am thrilled with my new artwork. The shop is clean and has a very comfortable atmosphere, which is important if you are going to sit for 2+ hours getting tattooed.
Karen designed both of my pieces from ideas in my head and was able to put onto paper, and my body, exactly what I was looking for. I wouldn't go anywhere else now!

Artists are incredibly talented and create more beautiful artwork out of your ideas than you could possibly imagine. Staff is friendly and welcoming, equipment is sterile, the ink is just gorgeous and the colors are stunning. These are truly some of the most lovely and unique tattoos ever made. I would definitely recommend Sacred Rose to anyone whether you are a newbie or a veteran.
