Who knew tattoos could be so ... sexy?
Tattoos have evolved and grown in popularity over hundreds of years, becoming more accepted and loved in our society every day. With so many groundbreaking tattoo artists around the world, the tattoo industry is breaking the rules and fast becoming one of the biggest forms of talent and creativity there is.
From flash art to directly on the skin, tattoos are bringing even the most obscure and abstract forms of art to life.
When we think of traditional tattoos, we think of the old-school roses, skulls and daggers, and pin-up girls sailors would get all over their bodies. Now compare that style to what tattoo artists can do today and it isn't hard to see that we have come a long way since then.
This gallery will show you that there is a tattoo trend out there for everyone. Whether you are looking for another tattoo to add to the several ones you have already, or if you are just looking for something small and minimalistic as your very first tattoo, there is something out there to fit your taste. And really, I think EVERYONE realizes now how sexy a tattoo can really be. No more worrying about that whole ... permanent ... thing.
What we love most about these tattoo trends is that they are all so unique. None of them are alike and yet, we can't stop drooling over all of them. They are THAT amazing.
Each one of these tattoo artists are showing off their originality (and badass skills) in these trends and if you love tattoos as much as us, you'll be booking it to the next (super-skilled) tattoo parlor in no time.
