Trash Polka Tattoos
Trash Polka tattoos are a relatively new idea. There are people who are crazy about it and then there are others who are simply curious about what the new style is all about. Either way, it is undoubtedly the most novel and talked-about style to have hit the world of tattoos, off late.
Trash Polka tattoo style was coined by Simone Plaff and Volko Merschky at Buena Vista Tattoo Club in Germany later described in the words of Volko as "a combination of “realism and trash; the nature and the abstract; technology and humanity; past, present, and future; opposites that they are trying to urge into a creative dance to harmony and rhythm in tune with the body”. While the style itself is more painterly, one cannot miss the obvious influence of music in these tattoos. The tattoos depict large tattoo impressions that have been described as dynamic, bold, adventurous and are mostly done in black and red inks. A lot of enthusiasm and excitement surrounding Trash Polka tattoos is a clear indication that these tattoos are here to stay.
