Trash Polka is a popular tattoo style made popular by German tattoo artists Volker Merschky and Simone Pfaff in Wurtzburg, Germany in the mid-nineties. The main features of Trash Polka tattoos are a mixture of photorealistic, realistic, surreal and mixed calligraphic themes with real, graphic lettering, images and lettering elements in mostly all shades of red. There are various possibilities of incorporating this particular tattoo theme. The most popular one is usually the image of a trash can with text inserted. The background is usually green with some smaller red dots here and there. Sometimes, the image of a skull is also incorporated.
Unlike the real possibility, the appearance of the original artwork tends to be quite messy. This is due to the fact that it involves a lot of hand painting. However, this does not mean that it cannot be very beautiful, which is why many people choose this particular type of ink to get inked on their skin. The realism of the images which are usually depicted in a trash polka tattoo makes them more appealing for tattoo lovers. It is also this realism that helps bring out the feeling of craziness and the attitude in the tattoo.
Another reason why this tattoo style seems so appealing is because of the vivid colors and the amazing geometric patterns which are commonly found in modern abstract art. The use of red color which is common in modern abstract pieces helps make the motif more appealing to many people. Some tattoo lovers even choose the color black when they want to combine it with a particular color theme. Black trash polka tattoos can also act as a contrast with the bright red of the design to create a contrast that is extremely attractive to look at.
If you are considering getting a tattoo of a trash polka design, it is recommended that you first try it on the part of your body where you plan to put it. Although this is considered a humorous theme, you do not want to get something tattooed that would make you uncomfortable in the future. The best thing to do is look at the shoulder, the hips and the back of the neck before deciding on the other body parts. By looking at these places, you will be able to determine if the color of the tattoo will go well with your skin tone. Another thing to consider here is the fact that women who want a skull tattoo are often advised against getting one on their breasts as they are thought to have ‘bones’ in them.
As with any type of art, these tattoos must be made by a skilled artist who has a good knowledge of this particular type of work. This is due to the fine lines and shapes that are often involved. Therefore, it is important that the artist that you work with has experience in working with these types of designs. Another option here is to find an online tattoo shop that offers these types of tattoos and take some lessons from the website before you proceed. This way you can learn about the fine lines that need to be addressed and how to draw them effectively.
Polka-dotted tattoos are very popular and they can look very cool, but one thing that must be noted is that there are a few things that can lead to smudges or smears forming around the red ink. The first issue here relates to the skin being damp, either through perspiration or through a bath or shower. The next issue deals with the skin is extremely dry and this causes the smudges to form.
In short polo style tattoos are very unique, have a very modern feel to them and they do not require a great deal of skill. It comes down to the realism that the artist is able to achieve with the designs. If you are considering this style, it would be advisable to take a look at some of the work that a local tattoo artist may have done and then to proceed with making your choice from there.
