The tattoo trends 2020 speak a clear language: colorful, minimalistic and nature-related motifs land on our skin this year. And there’s a retro trend too …New year, new tattoo? Why not! 2020 is all about the Minimalism and nature: wildflowers and space, travel and animals – if you want to get a tattoo, you are guaranteed to find it here.
The tattoo trends 2020
You know that you definitely want to get a new tattoo, but you lack the necessary idea? Then you will find great motifs and trends here. Is it even your first tattoo? Then take enough time to decide which motif should be immortalized on your skin. The tattoo artist Trudy Lines from New York even sees the thoughtful approach as a trend: This year tattoo fans are returning to “well thought-out and strategic tattoo planning”. “The design process and the pre-tattoo phase are becoming more important,” says the American “Popsugar“. Which motives will come in 2020? Here comes the top 7:
Let yourself be inspired by the most beautiful trends for 2020, let’s go:
Sun, moon & star tattoos
According to Pinterest, searches increased Space tattoos 2019 by 267 percent compared to the previous year. No wonder, the infinite vastness of the universe is not only exciting through a telescope, but also looks quite fascinating on the skin. The traditional technique of “stick and poke” is often used for the galactic images: instead of the machine, the color is stuck into the skin by hand with a needle. So the planets, stars, comets or rockets do not appear bulky, but minimalistic.
One line tattoos
Bye, bye, realism: From 2020 we will find chunky portraits of celebrities, close people or pets less and less on the skin. The trend is delicate images that are engraved with one-line technology or single-line technology. Continuous, thin lines create a delicate portrait for eternity.
Wild plants tattoos
Large-scale flower prints? Yawn! 2020 is also characterized by flora and fauna, but it will – you probably guess it – become more minimalistic. XL motifs give way to delicate herb tendrils and individual stems. The tattoos look like they have been snapped. Fits the current climate movement and also looks very magical. We love it!
Let’s travel the world! Tattoos that are reminiscent of our trips to foreign countries and cultures are becoming increasingly popular. But a travel motif that shows maps and silhouettes of countries or cities, a map of the world, coordinates or planes is also a nice idea for all wanderlust sufferers among us. Here, too, the trend is towards filigree lines:
Yes, that’s right: Tribals are back! But don’t worry, they come in a new face! The traditionally black ornaments have their origins in tribal culture and adorned brave warriors in Southeast Asia and Oceania. In the late 90s and early 2000s they adorned the upper arms or calves of men and (unforgettable!) The rump, aka the ass antlers, of the girls. Today? Tribals are a bit more reserved and smaller. Will this trend prevail? We are excited.
Lyrics, quotes and sayings are a nice tattoo idea – but often very long. This year therefore applies: say it, but keep it short. Individual words, signs or logos are placed in concise places, such as on the finger, shoulder blade or decollete, and work all by themselves. Taste? Here you go:
Animal tattoos, especially all forest and air dwellers (deer, foxes, birds, etc.) remain a trend in 2020. However, the look is new: Colorful gradients, also in combination with black, adorn our bodysuits.
