Getting ink has never been more popular. People from all walks of life, spanning nearly every demographic are reaching out to their local tattoo artists for artful designs. Let’s take a look at some of the top tattoo trends of the new year that will be popular into 2022 and beyond.
Tattoos in 2022: What’s in Style?
Just about everyone wants to get a tattoo like those proudly displayed by their favorite athletes, musicians, and celebrities. The latest tattoo styles feature new concepts along with some rehashes of tats popularized years and even decades ago. If you want to ramp up business at your tattoo shop, now is the time to take note of the latest trends.
An increasing number of tattoo-seekers want to see what their hand-drawn design will look like on their skin. Some elect to create artful designs with computer software, run them by their friends, and select the best one based on feedback from their social circle. In particular, video game-related tattoos are becoming quite popular as Generation Z comes of age. Pokémon characters, pixelated Marios and Luigis and Kratos from God of War are some of the trendiest video game character tattoos at the current moment.
Barcode tattoos are back and becoming more popular than ever. Turn on ESPN and you’ll see Mina Kimes sporting a barcode tattoo on her inner arm. Barcode tats along the arms, legs, and neck have the potential to become even more commonplace in the year ahead, providing a chic post-industrial aesthetic that symbolizes the gradual commodification of humanity.
The tale of Medusa is centuries old yet the mythical figure still lives on in the form of eye-popping tattoos. Part of the resurgence of medusa can be credited to the trend of sexual abuse survivors inking the image of the stone-gazed snake-laden character on their flesh.
Getting a tattoo of, or about, your pet is growing in popularity. Plenty of pet owners, as well as those who have lost pets, get inked to honor their furry friends.
Inscription tattoos are also spilling over directly into the mainstream as we transition to the new year. This uber-stylish tattoo is particularly popular among young women. Most inscription tattoos have a special meaning to the individual getting inked.
Inscription tattoos have been popularized across all body sites though the clavicles are by far the most popular site for inscriptions. Tout the artfulness of your inscription tattoos as a business owner, and it won’t take long for customers to request ink on their feet, ankles, wrists, fingers, back, and neck. The addition of complementary hues, background color, graphics, and even animal designs make inscription tattoos that much more impactful.
