What are the hottest tattoo designs?
'New School' Style Tattoos. These are a modern version of the ol' sailor Jerry style of tattoos such as anchors and swallows. They are much brighter and more animated than their predecessors which look very flat in comparison. A lot of people especially females are asking for tattoos of swallows and anchors on their neck.
Japanese Kanji Tattoos. Japanese style tattoos are so popular amongst females who are going for "full sleeve" style tattoos depicting Japanese characters such as koi or carp fish.
Floral and Love Heart Chest Tattoos. This style can look so sexy on a girl! There is a certain timeless look with these tattoos harking back to the good ol' days of the 1950's.
Star Tattoos. These have always been popular but more people are getting them done on visible places such as wrists and on the lower legs. Unsuprisingly Hollywood stars are lining up for the tattooists chair and demanding tattoos that reflect their lives.
Tribal Tattoos. Tribal tattoo designs have been around for hundreds of years but are becoming more and more complex and constantly evolving and morphing into what has become known as neo tribal tattoo styles. Tribal styles can be traditional 'black work' covering the arms or more colorful styles characterised by the 'Modern Primitive' look covering the entire body.
Tips for Getting Tattoos
Choose your tattoo carefully. Don't go for some off the wall 'flash' tattoo. A good tattoo artist loves doing 'custom pieces'.
Try not mix different tattoo styles such as Japanese and Tribal styles. It doesn't work!
Go to a reputable tattoo artist not some backstreet 'scratcher' who is cheap but you will inevitably regret later. Build a relationship with the tattoo artist if you plan of getting a lot of tattoos.
Take proper care especially of newer tattoos. As summer approaches a lot of people get tattooed and can't wait to flash them off. Be careful that you do not expose your new tattoos to too much sun which will fade them.
