Rose Tattoo is an Australian rock and roll band formed in Sydney in 1976. Their greatest songs are "Rock 'n' Roll Outlaw", "Bad Boy for Love", "Nice Boys" & "We Can't Be Beaten". They issued Scarred for Life in 1982, subsequently touring the US in support of Aerosmith and ZZ Top. The band's US visit was not a major success but proved to be influential on the underground sleaze metal scene in Los Angeles, with bands such as Guns N' Roses which later cited Rose Tattoo as a favourite and recorded a cover of "Nice Boys" on Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide in 1986.

In June 2007, Rose Tattoo supported Guns N' Roses with Sebastian Bach on their Chinese Democracy Tour's Australian leg. In October they supported Motörhead on their Australian tour dates.

Rose Tattoo are currently preparing to celebrate their 35th anniversary in 2011.
