Today, getting a tattoo seems to be quite trendy. You can see people of all ages with various tattoo designs. The most curious thing is that there seem to be certain tattoo designs, which are so popular, that everyone seems to have or want them. This fashion remains a mystery. Check out some of the most popular tattoo designs.

One of the most popular tattoo designs today is text. You can see various thoughts, quotes, single words or absurd word combinations in every language there is, even some non-existing tongues. Arabic and Chinese inscriptions seem to be the latest craze. If you’re planning to get one of these, you can only hope that the tattoo artist actually speaks Chinese and won’t mess up. And if he does mess up, it’s not that big of a deal – nobody would find out anyway. You might as well copy something from the menu in the local Chinese restaurant or from the tag of your T-shirt.


The nautical star is another very popular tattoo design. You can see many tattoos with a single nautical star or multiple stars on every part of the body you can imagine. A quick look at Wikipedia will tell you that the nautical star indicates membership in the United States Navy or Marine Corps. It is highly doubtful that there is any symbolism behind all the tattoo designs, featuring nautical stars. Maybe everyone has their own reasons for choosing a nautical star tattoo or maybe this design is just trendy.

Angel wings are also among the popular tattoo designs. The funny thing is that you can see them in various sizes and on different parts of the body. Who knew that the earth is full of so many fallen angels? If you really want to get angel wings tattooed, at least make sure you get the sizing and placement right. Otherwise, you’ll have to figure out a way to remove or hide you new tattoo.


It is a real mystery how various tattoo designs become trendy over a period of time and what happens, when they go out of fashion. If you want to get a tattoo, think of something, which has some meaning to you personally, don’t just follow the herd. And remember, the tattoo is something permanent – it will be on your body for the rest of your life.
