I've always loved tattoos and, as a child, spent days thinking about what my first piece of ink would be. After that happened at the age of 24, I went back to the parlor for two more. But as I get older (and hopefully a little wiser), I can't help but wonder if the peace tattoo on my wrist or the script on my ribs are overplayed, tired tattoos that my tattoo artist secretly didn't want to be doing. This made me wonder what played out tattoos are tattoo artists are sick of drawing.
To find an answer, Romper spoke with the experts: Savannah Leslie of Needful Things, Inc. in Fort Myers, Florida; Amy Pruss of the Showroom Tattoo Parlour in Las Vegas, Nevada; Nicolle LaRhette of Capital City Tattoo in Concord, New Hampshire; and Howie Abrams, a former manager at Brooklyn Made Tattoo in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. They spoke with Romper about their favorite types of tattoos (nostalgia is big with millennials, Leslie says) and new trends (younger women getting finger and hand tattoos, Pruss says). They also talked about the tattoos they'd rather not draw again.
If you're considering another piece of ink, think hard about what will best fit your personality, wants, and needs. And maybe think again if it appears on this list of tattoos that tattoo artists are actually sick of drawing.
