The most popular tats of 2015

Every year, a select handful of tattoo designs end up flooding the mainstream. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that social media is the main driving force behind the proliferation of these inspiring forms of body ink. So, here’s a rundown of the most popular tats of 2015:

1. The “Infinity” sign

This tattoo is a keeper. The infinity sign is a huge hit with the ladies and is usually rather discreet in size. The tat is often combined with a heart or the word “love” (for undying love) or with birds (representing the soul of a deceased loved one, for instance).

Arrow designs of all shapes and kinds were blistering hot picks in 2015. This year, most tattoo artists got requests to do tats like these at least every week.

Foil tattoos are temporary tattoos with a shiny metallic finish. The trend started with the famous Flash tattoos (read our blog article about Flash tattoos here), but by now, all kinds of varieties are available. There is something for everyone! The very fashionable gold and silver foil tattoos are still part of the array of course. But in addition, you will now also find dizzying holographic foil tattoos and colorful PrismFoil tattoos; even shiny temporary tattoos for your hair! The latter are now a real trend among the stars, such as Kylie Jenner.

Gold and silver foil tattoos

These are by far the most familiar foil tattoos. They provide a beautiful contrast for a black outfit; perfect for New Year’s Eve!

Below, they are used in very subtle ways. A few well-placed tattoos that are not too big will give you an elegant image. The bracelet with the bow makes it extra feminine!
