Why Minimal tattoo Designs are getting popular day by day? There is one thing that Millennial got right and that is – Less is More. They face all the blames of killing various industries but one thing the world is missing is the Minimalist lifestyle that has now become a trend.
Take tattoos for example – In 80s traditional Sleeve tattoos were considered cool. By the end of Millennia, Almost all popular rock-stars, Movie stars and wrestlers were inked with big designs on their back or chest.
However these changed drastically by 2010 as tattoo artists were getting more and more requests of Minimalist tattoo designs. Probably the new generation has found the formula – Just like Love, Tattoos too comes in all shapes and sizes.
The size of the tattoo does not matter much, what matters the most is its meaning. No one wanted a huge tattoo design that is meaningless and does not match their personality.
The trend of small yet meaningful tattoos was setting more among working women as they were looking for minimal designs that they could easily hide at work.
