Rose Thigh Tattoo Ideas 1

Blackwork Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

First on our list is a work from our own studio, Artist IG@: panumart_tattoo, and I’m loving it. Your eye is immediately drawn to the sophisticated shading; it’s nothing short of mesmerizing. Detailing is additionally achieved by the smart use of open negative spacing and subtle touches of white ink. Beyond the obvious skill seen here, this is one sexy tattoo that emphasizes and highlights all the right curves.

Woman’s Bejeweled Blackwork Rose Thigh Tattoo

It’s so impressive how these Roses, devoid of any color and with minimal shading, are the obvious focal point of this tattoo. Their stippled texturing is created with the specialized technique of whip shading. It’s this subtle shading, alongside large areas of open negative spacing, that make these Roses the stars of the show. Add some dangling chains, and it doesn’t get better than this.

Look at this tattoo, and words like moody, smokey, sophisticated come to mind. Oh, and I forgot sexy. There’s also plenty of skill on display here from the beautiful shading to the even, steady lines.

Realistic Color Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

Wow, is that purple Rose not gorgeous? The gradients of color, along with the restrained use of white ink highlights, make this Rose the absolute star of the piece. The previous tattoos on our list have been long and linear. This piece, in contrast, utilizes the width of the upper thigh as its “canvas”. The wide angular triangle in the background, is used to perfectly frame the soft, round outlines of the Rose. Picture Perfect

Realistic/Black and Gray Rose and Tiger Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

This is as real as it gets. It seems like you can literally feel the texture of the tiger’s fur and see light glistening off his eyes. But what’s truly amazing in this piece, is the sense of movement that the artist creates. We don’t see legs or any actual movement, but you could swear that this tiger is emerging from the surrounding foliage, ready to leap right out. This is where skill and artistry together take center stage.

This client is definitely going to be repeatedly lifting up her dress. Who wouldn’t want to show off this linework Rose tattoo? It’s so clean and crisp looking, with the most beautiful thin black lines. And if that weren’t enough, dangling dotwork, bejeweled chains grace the lower half. Now this is jewelry everyone is going to want.

Realistic Color Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

With most of the previous tattoos on our list, color was not employed. Alternatively, shading and contrast were used to impart realistic lifelike qualities to the piece. So although color isn’t a prerequisite for realistic renderings, you can see how its addition can be so beautiful.

Black and Gray/Linework Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

Here’s another piece with beautiful linework shading. The subtle tone that’s used is contrasted perfectly by dark black outlines and the more densely packed inking of the smaller leaves and snake. And talking about the snake, check out its amazing detailed pattern which is so crisp and clean.

Linework Rose Tattoo With Dotwork Shading on Woman’s Thigh

Here’s another example of beautiful, clean linework. The artist uses subtle dotwork shading to even further enhance it. Adding to the aesthetic of the piece, is the addition of lunar elements including twinkling white stars, giving you the galaxy at your fingertips.

Black and Gray/Color Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

I love this tattoo, from the shading that includes dotwork to the beautifully even, well-packed lines to the subtle use of open negative spacing and white ink. The color palette also blends well with the calf tattoo. Joined together with the long, sensuous line of the stem, this is…Sophistication

Rose and Calla Lilies Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

Here’s another moody, sophisticated piece. I’m loving the dark muted tones, offset with just a touch of white ink. The orientation of the piece is perfect too, as it highlights the beautiful contours of the client’s leg. Sexy Indeed

Black and Gray Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

The side of the thigh offers great placement for a large piece, that not only emphasizes the curves here, but also the linear aspect of the leg. In this tattoo, skilled shading is combined with the open negative spacing of the circle. (Is that the moon?) Unfortunately the outline of the circle is uneven which is somewhat distracting. Also, positioning it a little more inferiorly, would have served to better mirror the curves here. All in all though, this is an impressive tattoo.

Minimal Fineline Rose Tattoo With a Pop of Color on Woman’s Thigh

Sometimes less is more, especially when you have a beautifully inked fineline Rose tattoo. The one petal, inked in a vibrant red, is all that’s needed to make this Rose a standout. Surrounded by a large area of open negative spacing, this simple design says it all.

Black and Gray/Linework Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

Unlike the previous tattoo, this one is positioned on the front of the thigh. Even though it’s not positioned on the side, an angled orientation is employed. This serves to add interest and a sense of flow, or movement, to the piece . Crisp lines and skilled shading then come together to create one beautiful tattoo.

Front of Thigh Black and Gray/Fineline Rose Tattoo

The muted tones in this piece beautifully complement the client’s skin tone. Although there isn’t dramatic contrast employed, the black outlines of the petals are enough to bring the Roses into focus, making them the focal point. There’s also a graceful flow to this tattoo that looks like…Poetry In Motion

Woman’s Black and Gray Rose Tattoo on Side of Thigh

Talking of poetry in motion, this tattoo exudes gracefulness. With the crispest of lines, the ends of the cords seem to be swaying across the client’s leg. It’s nice how the darker ink of the cord contrasts so well with the lighter tones of the Roses. All in all, this is one beautiful tattoo, complete with charms and all.

Minimal Fineline Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

Looks like we have the beginnings of a wrist corsage, and lucky for this client, it will last forever. Minimal tattoos can look simple but they’re not easy. Any irregularity in the lines will be immediately evident as there’s no other detailing or distraction. With many minimal tattoos, the ink isn’t well packed and are subject to fading. That shouldn’t be the case with this one.

Rose Thigh Tattoo Ideas 21

Woman’s Linework Rose Tattoo With Dotwork on Side of Thigh

Design composition is important to the aesthetics of a tattoo. Often on the arm, forearm, leg or calf, a long linear tattoo is placed which mirrors the body part. Alternatively, a design like this one highlights curves rather than just length. The end result is this gorgeous Rose tattoo, which I’m sure, this client will be showing off for a long time.

Black and Gray Rose Thigh Tattoo With Whip Shading

This tattoo perfectly illustrates the “marriage” between body contours and design, and you’ve got to admit this is one perfect “marriage”. I love the stippled surface of the petals and leaves, achieved with the specialized technique known as whip shading. Beautiful

Minimal Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Upper Thigh

You’ve got to admit that the positioning of this minimal Rose tattoo, upps the sexy factor big time. Its design is subtle, but its placement definitely highlights the curves found here. Other than when wearing a bathing suit, this tattoo’s viewing will be…By Invitation Only

Woman’s Realistic Color Rose Tattoo on Side of Thigh

This large Rose tattoo is not only gorgeous, it’s also a master class in skilled tattooing. The design takes full advantage of the “canvas” provided here. Subtle black outlines are used, so as to maintain a realistic representation of the Roses. And then there’s the shading! Gradients of color are used along with the reproduction of light sources to prove that a Rose tattoo can be almost as exquisite as the real thing.

Watercolor Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh and Knee

This is the first piece on our list that extends from the thigh onto the knee. As there aren’t many adornments for the knee, a tattoo is obviously the way to go. The Rose branches here are orientated to frame and highlight the knee with their soft touches of pretty pastels.

Cover-Up Embroidery Style Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

You don’t see many tattoos in embroidery style, but when you do, it’s easy to mistake them for the real thing. With this piece, it really looks like the artist took thread to stitch this work. It’s interesting to note that this tattoo was done as a coverup for both a scar and previous tattoo. Well Done

Woman’s Pretty Rose Tattoo on Front of Thigh

The dark shaded leaves in this tattoo provide such nice contrast to the lighter tones of the Roses. Within this muted color palette, the eye is drawn to the leaf at the upper right, whose shade is slightly darker than the Roses. There’s also less open negative spacing in this leaf. It’s a small touch, but one that adds to the aesthetic of the piece.

Rose Thigh Tattoo Ideas 28

Linework Rose Band Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

This tattoo looks like a lace garter adorning the thigh. The ornamental chains, complete with a jewel, add interest to this pretty floral piece. Although this is a large tattoo, its placement works for anyone looking for something that isn’t necessarily on display, and that’s available for private viewing only.

Blackwork Tiger Tattoo on Woman’s Arm

This is one lucky client to have this absolutely stunning floral tattoo. If it were me, I’d be pulling my skirt up everywhere to show it off. Of course, it’s a nice, hidden surprise for anyone invited to take a look. The colors are vibrant and well-saturated; the lines are so crisp and clean, and the white ink is applied meticulously. All in all, this looks like a masterpiece to me. Props to the Artist IG: @munsell_tattoo from Seoul, Korea and Melbourne, Australia.

Stunning Color Rose Tattoo on Woman’s Thigh

As we’ve seen, black and gray style is often used with many floral tattoos. This piece adds pretty dotwork shading to the mix. Combined with the thin black lines, there’s a definite delicate vibe. You should be aware though, that the light tones and less densely packed ink will have the tendency to fade, requiring touch-ups in the future.

Woman’s Rose and Snake Tattoo On Thigh and Over Ribs

We’ve come to the last tattoo on our list and I guess this tattoo can be a daily reminder of the pull of passion and temptation, as represented by the Rose and the snake. Beyond any symbolism, it’s a beautiful piece that gracefully follows the body’s curves. This is another example of a very large piece that will be out of the view, except of course, when passion and temptation win the day.


We hope you found what you were looking for and had as much fun looking at these tattoos as we had writing about them. Until next time, happy inking!
