Five Best: Tattoo Trends For The Year

Thursday, February 08, 2018

Sunny Rodricks picks out five tattoo trends that are expected to dominate 2018

Animal

Animal tattoos are symbolic, personal and have a strong meaning. People who select these usually do it to represent a quality they possess or believe in strongly. For example, a peacock represents beauty, pride and dignity, while a lion stands for leadership and strength. People are enamoured by animals and that’s why we love animal tattoos.

Plant stencilling

If you love flowers and want some of your favourites to be inked on your skin, then the plant stencilling tattoo trend is the one for you. With this type of tattoo, instead of using hand-drawn stencils to make the design, the plant and flower designs are dipped directly into the stencil ink. The tattoos are done along the lines of the plant’s stencil, followed by shading, which creates a realistic version of the plant.

Chandelier drop

These tattoos have a Mandala-type, lacy look, and often feature heavy ornamental accents. Due to their extreme versatility, they can be inked on any part of the body. The characteristic of such a tattoo style is the addition of details that appear to ‘drop’ down from the main part of the design. This is why many young girls and women are seen sporting this trend and ink chandelier designs on their backs, legs and elbows.

Minimalist

Less is more and impactful, is the phrase that tattoo lovers are adhering to. Minimalist or miniature tattoos are popular among today’s millennials. Just because it is minimal, doesn’t mean that there isn’t meaning and purpose behind them. They don’t immediately grab your attention, and are best if you want to put across a special but subtle message.

Geometric

Did you have a love-hate relationship with geometry as a student? Well, the geometric and Mandala tattoos are here to stay, because geometric designs are aesthetically satisfying. This style is the visualisation of balance, perfection, symmetry and harmony with their clean lines and repeated patterns. It’s not just circles and squares; these tattoos come in the form of animals, flowers or even your zodiac sign.
