It is fun to look at the history of tattoos and see how they have changed over the years. Allure magazine did a fun video showcasing how tattoos styles have changed over the past 100 years. While this video is not a comprehensive look at tattoos and the trends that follow them, it is interesting to see how tattoo trends have changed over the past century.
We write about tattoo trends a lot and that is because following a tattoo trend or getting a tattoo because it is trendy increases the chances of tattoo regret later on in life. Many laser tattoo removal experts report tattoo trends as one of the top categories sought for removal.
Because we are in a new year, we thought it would be fun to look at tattoo trends from 10 years ago and see what is still trendy and what has changed. Here are a few tattoos that were big hits in 2008.
- Stars – The star tattoo trend was big throughout the entire 2000s. Stars could be solid color or nautical, large or small. Many celebrities and musicians sported star tattoos. Stars were inoffensive enough that people started getting comfortable with placing them in highly visible places, such as the hairline, neck and even face.
- Celtic Knots – The Celtic knots tattoo trend lasted a long time and was still going strong in 2008. Celtic tattoos were seen all over the body, but one very common spot was on the bicep.
- Anchors & Swallows – Anchor and swallow tattoos were historically used by sailors as a way to show off their sailing adventures. These tattoos were very common in the 2000s and this trend was still going strong in 2008. It was common to see two identical swallows mirroring each other, usually on the hips or the collarbone.
