Roses and Rivets is an art gallery and permanent body art studio located in historic downtown Santa Paula, California, which opened on September 1, 2017.

We feature artisans and artists from Southern California, and we aim to showcase unknown and new artists, who may not normally have an opportunity for gallery showings.  Want to be featured?  Contact us here.  All gallery sales are made by standard commission agreements.

Tattoo appointments can be made with one of our two artists. Steph Sparrow, our owner, is a tattooist with over a decade of experience in the industry.  She specializes in fineline and single needle blackwork with a feminine bent, along with traditional American tattoos. Margaret Benbow is our new artist, recently promoted from her apprenticeship. She is available for small pieces, both blackwork and color. Send us a message through our contact page and we will get you in touch with your desired artist!

Want an idea for your new tattoo or body adornment?  Come in and check out our lookbooks for inspiration, as well as suggestions for body placement!  We will also be happy to work with your ideas and create a unique custom design.  We won't be happy...until YOU are happy.

We also offer brow microblading and powder brows, performed by our talented artist, Brenda Perez.  Contact Brenda directly for details.

This is not like any other tattoo shop you may have seen before.  To be clean, professional, and stylish is our mojo.  Plus, we are committed to friendly, exceptional customer service.  There is NO intimidation factor here like you may have experienced in other shops!  Roses and Rivets is dedicated to community - featuring local artists and serving Ventura County residents.
