Random tattoo trend

Recommended Posts

Anyone noticing the crazy kind of new school trend that is really..really..really growing of getting theeeee most outrageous funny/goofy/random tattoos humanly possible just for shits and giggles?lol

I realize people have always done this..but lately I have -seen things-..things I cannot un-see.. lol

If you're noticing it too - name some of the craziest tattoo designs/ whackiest you've been privy to lately.

I have a guy that wants me to tattoo a giant alarm clock with a banner that says "fun time" for no real reason...

And saw a girl get a gumball machine filled with eggs..which honestly was really cool. random but very cool..

In a magazine I actually saw a tattoo that had an image of someone with a visible mental disability that said "go full retarded"... im guessing they are going to regret that...quickly..highly offensive...

The list goes on...things seem to be getting more and more random...

Random tattoos are fun to look at, I will give you that. But they are not for everyone. I want a tattoo that means something to me. Each of my three means something to me, but yet they are cool at the same time to me. I know that not everyone likes them, but that is what makes us all different.

I think they're so cool!!! One of my favorite pieces of flash that I've ever seen was a gypsy-style bearded lady bust with her arms cut off, sprouting out of a boot. I can't remember who painted that, but goddamn, I would love to get that tattooed. My homie has a tater tot with these really sexy burlesque pinup legs, that one's pretty fucking funny.

I just posted a topic on weird tattoos. I'm not sure if my examples are "new school", whatever that means, or part of the trend you are talking about. I do wonder where people get the ideas.

There is a tattoo of a pizza slice on the Instagram lst thingy on the right while I type this, does that count.

That things is pretty weird, but cool and fun at the same time. Usually the problem I have with weird tattoo is people do em all wonky and new school, this seems to be a pretty solid tattoo.

But also I would like to add that Dave Lum has being doing weird, but technically perfect tattoos since before most of us even thought of getting a tattoo.

Edit

Also Jeff Rassier, just pointing out weird is not really a trend and most tattoos are weird, and the idea of getting a tattoo is pretty weird. Imagine if no one had tattoos and someone suggested the idea of letting someone stab you repeatedly with a needle and ink to create a permanent design?

good points!

I guess I'm just seeing a lot of people get weird things for the sake of them being weird, on purpose, for humour.lol. i'm sure this is not new, its just like a massive spike in the behavior.

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
