Providing custom tattoos in a friendly, inclusive environment.

Rosie has been tattooing since 2012. She opened her own studio, Rosie Tattoos, in the spring of 2020. She wanted to pursue her passion for tattooing and create a positive, inclusive, learning environment where artists can thrive together.

We have 8 artists to choose from with a wide variety of specialties. Whether you're looking for dainty, fine-line tattoos, black and gray realism or big and bold neo-trad full color, we have an artist to match your style. We make it easy by offering free online consults via Facebook Messenger or Instagram. Once you contact us with your ideas and reference photos, we'll discuss your ideas and match you with the right artist for your project.

Testimonials

Rosie is one of the best artists in Knoxville in my opinion. I love her style. I have always had an idea about what I wanted and she brings it to life with how artistic she is. I highly recommend her! She has done many of my tattoos and a couple piercings. Fair warning.. after your first session with her you will be hooked!

- Jordyn A

"Rosie has done two beautiful, intricate cover-up tattoos for me. She is able to take a vague idea or image and translate it into authentic, personalized artwork. She has also done several other hours of tattooing for me and each time, without fail, I am impressed with her work. She is courteous, personable, hilarious and a true professional. I can't wait to get in her chair again!"

- K.H.

"My tattoo is awesome! I get compliments on it all the time. And, it wasn’t any old design out of a catalog. I took her a silver Christmas ornament that was meaningful to me and said, “Can you do that?” And, it’s perfect! I show people the ornament and the ink and they’re always impressed. Plus, her professionalism was top-notch. I can’t wait to use her again!"

- Jennifer B

"She is so passionate about her job and it shows, she is easy to talk to and relatable. She is also very intuitive and can really bring your ideas to life. She is absolutely amazing!!"
