Tattoos used to be a unique form of art that people would put on their bodies to express their individuality. Over the years though as tattoos have become more and more mainstream there have been emerging trends in the types of tattoos people are getting. If you want to have a tattoo that is unique and not like tattoos others are getting, you’ll certainly want to avoid any designs that fall into these trendy categories. To those ends, we’ve prepared a list of the most popular tattoo trends of 2019, according to research down by Tattoodo. Minimalist Tattoos. Minimalist tattoos, with fine lines and simple designs, are very popular. They are usually inked in simple black and grey. Geometric Tattoos. There is a trend for geometric designs paired with more natural influences, such as an angular shape layered over a flower’s petals, for example. Small Tattoos. Tiny tattoos are still going strong. The great thing about this trend is that it’s so open to your personal aesthetic. They’re easy to get because they don’t require the same commitment that a larger tattoo would (e.g. time commitment, cost, etc.), so it’s easy to see why these are still very popular. Flowers. Flower tattoos have always been extremely popular. They are the perfect balance of softness and femininity and make a beautiful permanent body modification. The classic rose design is by far the most popular. Hand Tattoos. At one time, hand tattoos were considered too extreme for the general public. Getting tattoos on your hands was thought to be something that would kill your prospects of getting gainful employment. Since the dawn of Instagram influencers and celebrities on social media, it’s no longer thought to be such a bid deal for tattoos to be on your hands. Get What You Love. At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that the artwork you choose to put on your body is permanent. It’s never a good idea to hastily pick the art you want to put on yourself. Given proper planning and preparation, your tattoo will be something that you cherish for years to come.
