We all want our skin-art to have significant meaning and be wildly original and creative. Choosing what to get and where to get it is literally a life-long commitment.
To inspire your inky desires and designs , here are some 2020 Tattoo Trend Ideas for all you fierce and fabulous ladies out there.
If you want to get inked but you don't want the whole world to know it - go small. Who said tattoos have to be huge? Find an artist that specializes in small designs and isn't afraid to work with minute detail. Many tattooers will avoid small works for fear of not being able to get the detail of the design. Cute, small tattoos are perfect for that cheeky, sexy little secret tattoo in a discreet spot and only takes 1 quick session to finish. Think wrist, hip, ankle or tucked away behind an ear.
Make your high school geometry teacher proud. From simple interlinking triangles to complex dodecahedrons, there's something very calming and grounding about a geometric tattoo. Be mindful of the placement, though - work with the natural shape and form of your body when you choose a geometric shape. Put in the wrong spot, people will be wondering why you have an egg (when it was meant to be a perfect circle) tattooed to your wrist every time you reach for your drink.
Lettering tattoos can be delicate and whimsical or bold and bitchin', the trick is all in choosing the right font. If you have an empowering quote you love or a saying that resonates with you, immortalize your mantra in skin-ink so you can be reminded of it on a daily basis.
Flower tattoos can be large, bold and colorful, or discrete, hidden, and delicate - the choice is yours. With so many diverse shapes, colors and sizes to choose from, they look good anywhere on the body. A delicate wildflower behind the ear, creeping vines and flowers along your ribcage, or maybe a whole sprawling sleeve of colorful blossoms. Flowers compliment the natural curves of your body. Have fun with the design and placement.
With so many shapes and colors to choose from, the possibilities are endless. If you don't know where to start, or what flower you like, why not consider your birth-month flower:
2020 has seen an upward trend in impressionist family portraits. Simple, clean lines and silhouettes give you an ever-lasting reminder of the people who unconditionally love you. Choose a meaningful photograph of your family, your bestie or your pet to be immortalize in skin for life.
For the last 5 years and continuing into 2020, watercolor tattoos have grown in popularity. Different to the bold, dark lines of other tattoo methods, the freeform style of watercolor tattoos capture the essence of the actual painting method and create a sense of whimsy and movement. But be warned: the subtle color of these tattoos can fade a lot faster than other tattoo methods. But contrasted against a black base or bold line work the colors pop beautifully. This work needs an experienced artist to capture the authenticity of the genre, so find someone who has experience in this style.
Here's where your artist really matters - the big, bold-statement piece. The statement piece tells the world you are unapologetically you, and no one is going to tell you otherwise. Fill your whole back with a majestic phoenix rising from the flames or a full sleeve from shoulder to knuckle of your favorite Anime characters. Choosing the right tattooer is, for all the apparent reasons, crucial for large pieces. Choose a highly skilled, experienced artist with a good reputation. The tattooer must be as invested in your piece as you are. It is, after all, also the tattooer's creation as much as it is yours. Your artist will work with you on making sure your grand masterpiece is placed correctly and works with the overall shape and natural form of your body. Usually, the tattooer will agree with you on a set price for larger pieces, rather than charging you by the hour. Get a fair price, but don't skimp on cost - you'll get what you paid for.
