The most popular tattoo trends of 2018 have been revealed and one of our favourites made the list.
Minimalist tattoos have come out on top and we’re not one bit surprised. The dainty and intricate designs are simply stunning.
Speaking to The Independent, the team at New York’s West 4 Tattoo said: “Tattoos today can achieve a level of detail that can be similar to drawing; therefore, a trend of ‘fine-line’ has risen.”
They explained that scripted lettering tattoos have been hugely popular lately: "Lettering is the most popular request at our shop because words carry so much significance and meaning to the clients, whether it be names, numbers, dates, actions, quotes, adjectives.”
The best thing about minimal tattoos is the lack of pain. The team said the rib cage and wrist areas are some of the most popular spots for minimal tattoos.
If you’re itching to get a tattoo then a minimal tattoo is perfect for you. They’re subtle and easily hidden, but hold so much meaning in the detail.
