Top Tattoo Trends of 2014


The tattooing world is constantly changing, and new tattoo trends continue to pop up. With this in mind, now is a perfect time to take a look at some of the top tattoo trends of last year, where we’ll talk about some of the most popular tattoos of 2014.


Breaking Bad

With what seemed like the whole world talking about the TV series, it’s no surprise that people began inking their skin with designs inspired by the most talked about show over the past few years.

Head Mandala

The head mandala tattoo has become popular along with the half-shaved head style. It helps that in the latest instalment of the Hunger Games movie franchise, the character Cressida, played by Natalie Dormer, sports a similar tat. They look brilliant and particularly pretty, but we can imagine it’s not the most comfortable place to have inked!

Bottom of the Foot

2014 seemed to be the year of the masochist, with people choosing to be tattooed on the soles of their feet! Ouch! The trend seemed to be sparked by Miley Cyrus who had the words ‘Rolling’ and ‘$tone’ tattooed on the soles of her feet


Everyone’s favourite childhood brick is being immortalized by fans everywhere, who have been getting themselves inked with lego characters. Ironically, this example is on the feet, and we all know how feet and lego are a terrible mix…


These impressive, ultra-realistic tattoos were a huge hit in 2014, showing off the skills of some super talented artists. Admittedly, these tattoos can be a little creepy, especially when depicting a spider crawling across the skin… *shiver*
