Rose Hardy is one of several tattoo artists, who are showcasing their transformational skills on new Netflix show Tattoo Redo.
Bad tattoos go from exactly that, to completely new works of art in this series, where a group of artists are given designs by their loved ones.
Think Tattoo Fixers or Just Tattoo of Us, it’s likely going to knock you off your seats when they reveal the cover-ups on the series.
Rose is amongst the group of six tattoo artists on Tattoo Redo, as they get to work on disaster ink pieces. We explored her tats, Instagram and life.

Rose Hardy: Tattoo career and family
Straight out of the New Zealand tattoo scene, she has travelled the world for her job, from Melbourne, to London, and then to Stockholm, and back.
Before she began tattooing, her dream was to go to art school. However, tattooist Adam Craft helped her get her foot in the door when she was 19.
Rose then apprenticed under different artists, including Aaron Stradwick.
Now a well-known artist, she has a few other ventures, including Illicit in New Zealand, a clothing label and tattoo studio who have used her designs.
The Netflix star also designs for a US company called Tattooed Steel, who laser-etches her work onto jewellery.
When it comes to cameras, Rose is no stranger to them, as she judged E4’s Tattoo Artist of the Year back in 2017!
Family-wise, she appears to be close to her mom and sister. And no, the rumors aren’t true – she is not related to tattoo legend Ed hardy.
