Fashion and style should partly reflect our life attitude and opinions. In addition to behavior, clothing, hairstyle or makeup, lifestyle helps us complete body art. The name itself suggests that this is art on the body. This meaning is completely accurate – body painting, piercings, tattoos and more. Independent creative activities on how to decorate the body were gradually set aside.
Where did body art originate? Body art is classified under conceptual art, which was created in the 60s. He rejects all methods of fine art and concentrates on the idea, the idea and then on the result. For more extensive paintings on the body, the term body painting is used, especially for face painting, the term body face is used, and the special technique of body painting using a tattoo needle and ink is called a tattoo.
At one time, roses and Chinese characters ruled tattoo parlors. Those days are long gone and originality and uniqueness come first. There is even a growing number of creators who keep designing new tattoos so that no two are the same. It is not a problem to get a tattoo exactly according to our wishes. one of them is Lukas Solik from the tattoo studio TRIBO in Pragueto whom I asked several questions.
How have tattoo trends changed in the time you’ve been tattooing?
Trends haven’t changed much, the majority of the clientele is still fixated on kitsch and old-fashioned ornamentalism from the early 90s. However, in the last few years, a strong group of people has been forming, who try to go deeper, have the courage to experiment, and the result is that they sometimes deviate strongly from the trend. It must be said that even this progressive branch has unfortunately created a trend in itself over time and clients force us to recycle, which is harmful.
What does a tattoo mean to you?
The tattoo has no deeper meaning for me. I’ve been drawing since I was little, and tattooing came to me as an opportunity to use drawing, at least partially, in real life. So you can say that tattooing is a compromise for me. Such a pleasant type of compromise.
What is the most in demand?
There are several tattoo artists working at Tribe, and each of them focuses on a different, stylistically distinct branch of clients, that is, only a certain selection of clients comes under my hands, but I can say for myself that they are mainly drawing things, a lot of fauna, or typos.
If you desire an original tattoo, definitely do not give up on your dream. Gone are the days when monotonously our shoulders glistened with a tiny rose. Be unique and have a tattoo design made just for you.
