Tattoo Trends to Look Out for in 2022
With more and more people choosing to get tattooed, new tattoo trends are emerging all the time. Plus, given the turbulent times that many of us have experienced throughout the past couple of years, the ink that people are choosing to adorn their bodies with is also changing to reflect this period. Below, we take a look at what some of the most popular tattoo trends could be for the year ahead, with examples from our Sponsored Artist, Graham Cameron (@11____13)
One of the tattoo trends that we think will be popular throughout 2022 are minimalist tattoos. Minimalism, as a design movement, first gained traction during the mid 20th century and has been used by many famous designers to create simple, yet stylish designs that stand the test of time. In tattooing, these types of minimalist tattoos are typically monochromatic and will include only the very essential lines, resulting in a crisp and effective design.
One thing to note about minimalist tattoo designs is that they can be quite versatile and can be adapted to suit any part of the body. They are also popular because they often have a timeless characteristic, meaning you won't likely regret getting one in a few years' time.
Geometric tattoos are another style that could form a significant part of fashion trends in 2022. These tattoos typically feature shapes and patterns that are often symmetrical in nature. A lot of tattoo artists have experimented with this kind of tattooing, especially over the past few years as they really allow an artist to show off their skillset. It is likely that we will see a lot of different and unique geometric tattoo designs in the years ahead.
It is also clear that an increased number of people have been searching for meaning in their lives over the past couple of years. To some extent, this is also becoming reflected in the tattoos that people are requesting. For example, spiritualist tattoos can come in many different forms but often include symbols such as mandalas, crosses and feathers, all of which hold personal significance to the wearer.
Tattoos of nature are also likely to feature among some of the most popular tattoo trends for 2022. As we've seen, tattoos of natural elements such as flowers and trees have continued to grow in popularity for a few years now. Thanks to the pandemic, even more people are learning to appreciate the power of the outdoors and choosing to reflect it's calming power through their tattoo choices.
Of course, it is not always easy to predict what the latest tattoo trends will be. Tattoo trends are constantly changing and evolving, so if you're considering getting a new tattoo for 2022, it is important to remember to get a design that is right for you, rather than just basing your decisions on what is popular at this current moment in time.
