Trend Tattoo 2016

In 2015 we saw a ton of spectacular tattoos. Incredible designs were unleashed into the tattoo world on the daily. It’s safe to say that the artists of today continue to defy expectations of what a tattooer can do with human skin. Ten years ago, many would have assumed that tattoo styles such as realism would not translate well on the human body, yet Nikko Hurtado, Bang Bang, Yogi Barrett and more have defied the odds.
There is no doubt that the tattoos of 2016 will continue to reshape our idea of what a tattoo can and cannot be. We expect to see trends from 2015 carry over into 2016, as the tattoo world has already been exposed to some of the great feats within the industry.
Individuals from around the globe tend to gravitate toward some of the hottest tattoo trends every year, so we rounded up some styles and designs that you should keep your eye on for 2016.

Double Exposure Tattoo
In addition to being an artist who caters to tattooing the stars, Bang Bang is an artist who strives to tattoo the impossible. He works primarily in black and grey, and this year he dabbled in creating double exposure tattoos. Many artists from around the world have taken inspiration from double exposure photography and replicated the technique in tattoos. This style is extremely difficult to execute yet if it is done correctly, it creates a truly unbelievable tattoo. We can only expect that more artists will attempt to create double exposure tattoos in 2016.

Tattoo Trend, Permanent Decision

Social Media sites like Tumblr, Instagram, and Pinterest are flooded with tattoos of delicate script, minimalistic infinity signs, and feminine anchors; tattoos like this are all huge trends at the moment. We all know someone who has one or more of these familiar designs and what many who decide to get these tattoos do not seem to realize is that the style will eventually fall out of fashion. Don’t believe me? Let’s not forget that lower back tattoos (or tramp stamps as they’re derisively referred) were once all the rage! Khlo√© Kardashian and Cheryl Cole both fell for the tattoo trend of lower back tattoos during the 1990s and early 2000s, and like many thousands of women they either got their tattoos removed or covered up. Lower back tattoos dominated the tattoo world and were one of the first tattoos that women were able to wear as their own without being branded as masculine. Yet over time the trend has collapsed on itself, earning the aforementioned nickname. But what about the women who still live with tattoo trends from the past? How do they feel about their tattoo five or 10 years after the trend has long blown over?
Many who get lower back tattoos are happy with the decision, because it is just another piece of tattoo real estate. “I love my tattoo. It’s one of my favorites still,” says Drave Suicide, a body piercer and model with Suicide Girls since 2005. “My lower back tattoo, which is A Perfect Circle symbol, was actually my first tattoo. I got it because A Perfect Circle is one of my absolute favorite bands and a lot of their songs have got me through a lot in my life. I decided to get it on my lower back because I already knew I was getting angel wings on my back and I wanted to put the symbol inbetween the wings,” says Drave. Drave sees her lower back ink as strategic in its placement, as opposed to designed to fit the 90s style trend and despite the backlash that this type of tattoo has received in the media, she is proud of the design. Yet many women do not share the same views of their own lower back inkings.

Tattoos that Stand the Test of Time

Over the past few decades, the tattoo industry has seen a rapid increase in the number of tattoo styles and designs that a person can choose from. Ten years ago, most people would never have heard of a “watercolor” tattoo yet today it is one of the more popular styles. And because a lot of these styles of tattooing are fresh and new, we haven’t really gotten the chance to see how these tattoos will age as time goes on. Will these styles and designs still be cool 15 years from now? Will new styles have replaced the “trendy” styles of today? Will anyone remember that ironic pop culture reference that you just had to have on your body forever? Who knows?! But what we do know is that there are iconic images and styles that have proven an ability to stay cool for years and don’t show any signs of slowing down. Here are some tattoo designs which have stood the test of time and will most likely still be classic 50 years from now.

Single Line Tattoos

Another tattoo trend that relies on a minimalistic design with expert execution is single line tattoos. This style has been perfected by tattooer, Mo Ganji and already we can see an increase in demand for tattoos composed of one continuous line. These simplistic tattoos have the same appeal as the minimalistic designs of Dr. Woo and Bang Bang and we can expect clients from around the globe to flock to this up-and-coming style.
