Tattoo’s – The Everlasting Beauty Trend


In the past, tattoos were often associated with sailors, pirates and outright rebels but now they are everywhere and can be spotted on everyone from our favourite celebrities to teenagers following celebrity culture and fashion forward men and women. In fact, it’s almost as if everybody is ‘going under the needle’ nowadays.
So what’s the appeal? Is it the fact that tattoos symbolise personal meanings and allow people to fit in with ‘what’s hot’ or is that they just look attractive? Well…whatever the reason, we can’t say we hate them! Tattoos give an individual a rebellious edge while allowing them to look stylish, be creative and express a pattern, symbol or statement which may be unique or personal to them.
We’ve seen popular drawings such as stars, tribal patterns, butterflies and lettering grace various body parts of the general public and these same designs also flourish in the fashion industry. Many popular styles of tattoo have also been displayed on celebrities such as Megan Fox, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie, Cheryl Cole and many more. In the 21st Century, it really is difficult finding a celebrity who isn’t the proud owner of a piece of body art!
‘Tatts’ are so popular that one can even be in the middle of a shopping trip and find themselves stumbling into a tattoo parlour, especially as they have now been set up in select Topshop stores. This only emphasizes the fact the trend of tattooing is well and truly here to stay and that body art has become a significant part of modern fashion culture.
For a select few photos of some popular celebrity tattoos, just scroll down.
