About the Tattoos Report

The Tattoos Trend Report investigates the world of tattooing, and how it has evolved into an accepted art form like henna. Corporations are now using tattoo art in advertising and marketing campaigns, and also popularizing tattoo artists in television shows like L.A. Ink. Conversely, innovations in tattoo removal by laser and removal creams indicate a consumer need for alternatives after a procedure. By understanding this creative art form, companies can better understand the evolving interests of consumers.

Sample Tattoos Pro Trends

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

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.

Brash Professionalism Formal tactics take a turn as society becomes more open and expressive Implications - Taking personal expression one step further, individuals are revamping formal concepts like resumes and business cards with more shock-worthy appeal. Referencing vices such as alcohol and medicinal drugs, these business tactics blur the lines between professional and private spheres, speaking to a more lax business ethic, particularly among youths.

Scannable Obsession Barcodes and QR codes permeate design as consumers accept digital culture Implications - Consumers find barcodes or QR codes commonplace symbols and have come to celebrate their incorporation into all areas of culture and design. Recognizing the inane simplicity attached to the use of scan technology, consumers are coming to find the beauty in digital codes to make the continued assimilation of technology in everyday life more colorful.

Aphotic Obsession As edgy is correlated to the concept of macabre, consumers idolize the sullen Implications - Anonymity on the Internet has reared a generation more comfortable expressing their emotions, which has led to the acceptance of melancholic feelings. As a result, consumers are looking to actualize emotions via wares that are in-line with their lifestyles as opposed to adhering to cultural subgenres.

Creative Jobbing Instead of listing qualifications, designers prove skill through prototype Implications - As the economic uncertainty continues to wain on and more creatives become desperate for employment, many have taken the matter into their own hands (literally) by exercising skills and qualifications through eye-catching resumes that are a physical embodiment of talent. This shift towards creative jobbing satisfies the need for instant gratification amid Millennial job hunters as well as busy executives.

Soothing Solitary Brands adapt to the increasing market of single consumers Implications - As digital lifestyles leave consumers with less face time than ever, innovations that look to soothe the melancholy brought about by the often-lonesome use of technology are on the rise. While the origins of many lie in Asia, the initiatives are being adopted in the west, where residents -- particularly in North America -- are battling an increasingly solitary lifestyle.

Inked Acceptance Tattooed photography captures reflect the emergence of more risqué imagery Implications - With mainstream media exposing consumers to features that are often outside their comfort zone, elements that were once considered risqué are becoming widely accepted and normalized within society. Photographic imagery that focuses on the beauty of body art and tattoos reflects a more open and accepting approach to non-traditional symbolism, showcasing a turn towards more provocative representations in everyday media.

Comedic Seniority The allure of relaxation prompts greater consumer acceptance of aging Implications - With old age providing the allure of retirement and relaxation, consumers bombarded by responsibilities of work and home are becoming more receptive of the idea of aging. Moving away from the typically mundane references associated with seniors, marketers are presenting elderly citizens with more edge and humor, combining the attraction of maturity with the need to maintain one’s exuberance throughout life. The surge of elderly ads reflect a shift in consumer perspectives toward more positive views of aging.
