Sample Body Art Pro Trends

Each Body Art PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online body art articles, videos and images. Examples:

Macabre Animalism Critters in design are taken from cutesy to dark for added sophistication Implications - The use of animals in design used to signify a cutesy, meme-friendly tone. In today's society, where consumers are more concerned with individualism than pleasantries, this has shifted toward a darker tone. The use of animalism in a more macabre context questions the concept of humanity, providing what consumers crave: more meaningful experiences.

Hyper-Niche Club Straying away from conventional interests, clubs cater to obscure hobbies Implications - Praising the obscure and eccentric, modern clubs are tailoring to niche consumer interests for heightened appeal. Catering to online gamers and punk cartoon fanatics, these memberships are using hyper-niche interests and hobbies to provide a social platform for those who tend to stray away from the mainstream.

Co-Branded Festival Moving beyond musical entertainment, festivals integrate pop-up stations Implications - Seeking to heighten festival engagement, brands are turning to unexpected pop-up stations for exposure.

Customized Communication Consumers search for ways to customize their visual online communication Implications - The world of online and text-based communication has expanded to include visual markers such as emoticons and "emojis." Thrilled with this new approach to communicating, consumers are searching for ways to extend the novelty and delight. Hyper-customized or branded emoticons reveal a consumer desire for streamlined forms of communication that are curated to individual tastes, personalities and interests.

Indulgent Grooming Male consumers opt for a luxurious experience when it comes to personal care Implications - Once a mark of rugged masculinity reserved for outdoorsmen, the beard has become a widespread and popular facial hairstyle. When it comes to upkeep and maintenance, male consumers are keen on luxurious, high-end tools and products that augment the experience of having a beard, as opposed to just the look. The greater emphasis on indulgent grooming rituals signifies a shift in masculinity, as men are more willing to consider aesthetics, pampering and self-care.

Sentimental Fatherhood Men are taking a more active role in child-rearing Implications - As the conversation on gender equality continues, men are willingly stepping into domestic child care roles. Masculinity has come to be redefined by fatherhood, with less importance placed on providing financially, and a greater emphasis placed on providing care. This lends to a new form of masculinity -- even outside of fatherhood -- based in nurturing and expressing.

Lumberjack Obsession The antiquated profession permeates markets as a symbol of masculinity Implications - As movements like Movember continue to accelerate the appeal of masculinity, the image of the lumberjack is re-entering popular culture. This shift towards hyper-masculinity acknowledges male consumers using nostalgic, iconic imagery, and is most effectively being adopted as a way to market typically female-targeted products to men.

Upgrading Apparel Consumers use tutorials and DIYs to make accessories hyper-personalized Implications - As the number of consumers DIYing their own clothing rises, more and more people are using crafty techniques and tutorials to personalize apparel. This move towards customization on a budget signifies a preference and desire for fleeting fashion styles and affordable variety.
