Tattoos are very popular no matter the age and gender. It represents a cultural phenomenon that attracts people instantaneously. Whether for artful expression, grievance and moving on, or an eternal skin declaration of love, tattoos have different meanings for everyone.
10. Chinese Symbol
Chinese symbols are a common habit when it comes to tattoos. Whether it says” I love you”. “Peace” or any other common phrase or word, it is as common as McDonald’s locations. The trend for Asian symbols started a couple of decades ago and is still ac common choice for many inked individuals. The bad part when it comes to unknown symbols is that well, they can actually mean nothing.
Gently flying through the air, sitting on the moon, on a flower, on a blossomed branch, fairies appear quite frequently on peoples arms, shoulders, legs and so on. Be it gory or fantasy, the fairy tattoo, like the Chinese symbol, seems to be quite popular even now. More common on girls than on boys, fairies have taken over large portions of skin throughout the globe. The more the feminine the fairy is the better. It seems teenage girls have a fascination with girly fantasy characters. The fairy makes the difference between cute and innovative.
8. Butterflies and Flowers
Be it on the back, ribs or ankles, a combination of light blue butterflies and peachy-pink, open flowers swirling together is always a good idea to have on your skin. Girls, again, have proved having a fascination for tattoos that not only lack originality but follow the same pattern over and over again. Thus, we have to place flowers and butterflies on our list.
7. Overly-Cursive Lettering
If only 2 out of 7 people can read your inked quotes then you fall into this category. The quote tattoo trend has fallen into “the non descifrable tattoo trend”. Unless you are having the path to a secret treasure tattooed on your arm, the letters should be visible to all.
6. Skulls Galore!
Skull tattoos are way too popular now days. You can find tattoos any way you can think of them: flames coming out of the eyeballs , skulls on fire, skulls wrapped in roses, skulls wrapped in barbed wire, an the list goes on and on. No matter how you skull tattoo turns out, one thing is certain ;having one does not make a bad ass no matter how much you wish that it would.
5. Rosary Beads
Anther common tattoo idea is the rosary beads. The most common location for it is around your ankle, with the cross neatly positioned on the top of your foot. A waste of good skin real estate it the carrier is not a religious person, the rosary beads tattoo is as common as the skull tattoo and as less creative.
If girls want fairies tattoo, guys tend to choose dragons as a symbol of their masculinity. Dragon tattoos lave an impression only when it’s an entire-body dragon beast. Tattooing a green lizard on your pecks or arms is not such a good idea for when you are older. The fantastic animals will then only remind you of your insane teenage years when you thought inking such a symbol can impress fairy tattooed girls.
As common as the flu, crosses have become the guy’s version of the Rosary Beads. Crosses are almost always tattooed on the upper arm, with lettering or a ribbon and black and white shading.
2. Nautical Star
Most people owning a nautical start don’t usually know what it means and have it on just for the esthetic effect. The worst part is that this symbol have become from a sailors symbol to an overrated hipster symbol. Unless the star has some relevant significance for you, you should not have it inked on your shoulder just to fill in the blank skin space.
Having millions of versions, the most common tattoo that also reaches first place on our list is the tribal tattoo. Usually done as less creative as possible, the tattoo stands out on biceps and legs, usually to complement the fresh tan and the tight white t-shirt. The tribal tattoo has become a symbol of bad taste in todays tattoo subculture, similar to the female epidemic of tramp stamps.
