Why Tattoo Trends Are Not A Good Idea

Tattoo trends come and go. Just like any other trend, it seems cool at the time, but once a few years have passed and the trend is no longer popular, many people have regrets.

Unlike a pair of jeans, or even a hair style, your tattoo is here to stay.

Why Are Tattoo Trends Worth Second Guessing?

    • Trends don’t last forever, tattoos do
    • You are more likely to regret a trendy tattoo
    • Always be sure about your design if you are going to get ink
    • You’ll have to pay for the tattoo, and then pay to get it removed

Today’s Popular Tattoo Trends
Neck tattoos: Neck tattoos have become extremely popular for guys.

Face tattoos: It looks like Mike Tyson started a huge trend back in 2002 when he got that infamous face tattoo. Now you see them all the time on athletes, musicians and everyday people.

Sleeves: It seems like anyone that has a couple tattoos ends up getting a half or full sleeve on their arm. The designs vary based on personal interests. One thing is for sure, if you want one removed, it’s going to take a lot of time.

Minimal tattoos: Less is more? Smaller tattoos may be less of a regrettable tattoo trend because they will be easier to remove.

Finger tattoos: Many people are skipping the wedding bands and getting tattooed bands on their fingers instead. The big issue with hand and finger tattoos is visibility.

Trendy Tattoos Of The Past
While neck, face, and sleeve tattoos may seem cool to many people today, so did the trendy tattoos of the past.

Who can forget these trendy tattoos that are now considered passe today?

Barbed wire bands: The tattoo that Pamela Anderson made famous.

Tribal tattoos: It seemed like every guy in the 90s had one of these.

Chinese lettering: From the wrong symbols and misinterpreted meaning there are many reasons these tattoos have fallen out of favour.

Tramp stamps: One of the most popular (and regrettable) tattoo trends for women.

The next time you are considering getting a trendy tattoo, or any tattoo for that matter, make sure you’ll be okay with it tomorrow, next month, next year, and 5 years from now.
