190+ Awesome Trash Polka Tattoos Designs For Men (2021)

Trash Polka Tattoos designs were born from hyper-realistic and surreal tattoos. This super cool style is credited to German tattoo artists Simone pfaaf and Volker Merschky. The tattoo style was created in 1998 and ever since then it is riding a high horse of popularity.

Trash polka designs are unique from hyperrealism as these designs are not limited to the 2d version of components. The artists focus a lot on 3d texturing, coloring of black spaces, and giving sharp brush strokes to geometrical or abstract shapes in the designs.

Even though Trash polka is in trend for the past 24 years but it still has a long way to achieve a global fanbase. One reason for its lack of popularity among south American and Canadian culture is because not many tattoo artists can pull it off. However, the trend is not dying any time soon in European and American subcultures.

The design gained unmatched popularity in the mid-2000s as it was extensively used in character designs of the famous Sci Fi Series Dr. Who.

This form of tattoo art is also affectionately called Gen-Z tattoo art. This is because trash polka tattoos are extremely popular among youngsters of the Gen-Z era. The artists called it ‘trash’ polka because the design was heavily inspired by artistic layers that were often ignored by the common tattooing styles.

New tattoo artists, who want to learn this tattoo style often ask what are the rules of trash polka tattoos? There are no exact set of rules as one has to follow only motifs and elements that are supported by hyper-realistic art. Usually, this is done by using black and red ink in the tattoo designs.

If you are a tattoo lover and you want to try trash polka tattoos then you might be wondering if trash polka tattoos are everlasting? The answer is that trash polka tattoos fade away quickly than your average tattoo design. Remember that a trash polka tattoo will require extra care and will take more time in healing than a normal tattoo design.

Trash Polka Tattoo Placement

Which body part have you chosen for your trash polka tattoo? Your placement decision will play a huge role in the overall finish and final look of the design. Usually, tattoo artists will suggest you try it on your chest or back as trash polka requires huge space.
