In the ancient times tattoo designs helped people to communicate and get acquainted. By tattoos people immediately understood who was in front of them. Nowadays, though this function is partially preserved, people first of all make tattoo designs for themselves. Tattoos help to express people’s personality, often though to be talismans, and of course fashionable elements. But what tattoo designs are in fashion today?
What is the most strange such question should not bother you. The tattoo owner should not think about today’s fashion trends. Individuality, the wish to reflect your unique character and personality must be the most important reasons for making and choosing your tattoo. It is the individuality and unique design of your tattoo you should be proud of. Nevertheless, fashion for particular tattoo style exists and has always been taken into account.
Traditional black tattoo designs have always been popular. They look classic and elegant and pass both men and women.
Later on complicated bright tattoos in Chinese and Japanese styles became widely known and spread all over the world. Ornaments and ethnic tattoos became fashionable not very long ago and are still among the most favorite and trendy tattoo designs. Symbols were used in tattoos since ancient times, but recently the minimalism became less popular. People understood that tattoo is first of all a piece of arts and should look really beautiful and stylish. Biomechanics is another trend that is still popular. Graffiti and cartoon tattoos are also often requested, especially among the young people. They look bright and fresh but the main problem here is if you would like them the same in future. Another popular trend today is scarification – in that case tattoo has volume and looks extremely interesting and unique. This trend is probably the most ancient, known from the dawn of the civilization, but recently it became really top fashion.
Recently also UV or so called blacklight tattoos appeared – they can be seen only in ultraviolet light, that’s why such tattoo designs can’t harm your career or way of life and are made only for yourself and the closest people.
So called “white tattoo designs” are also in vogue nowadays. In earlier times these tattoos were often made by Japanese women and called secret tattoos. In normal life they can’t be seen. Such tattoos become visible only when you drink some wine or sunbath, etc. The invisibility of such tattoo designs in normal life is their main advantage. On the other hand, they can look more like a scar, that’s why most of people still prefer traditional tattoo designs. 3D tattoo designs are the newest and probably the most demanded today.
This fashion trend appeared recently and quickly became popular and widely spread. Such tattoos look extremely beautiful and attract attention to their owners. As to the places, where tattoos are mostly often made, women prefer lower back, wrist, shoulder and back tattoo designs, while men usually choose shoulders and back tattoos.
