Trash Polka Tattoo Designs And Their Meanings

Trash Polka Tattoo Designs With Their Meanings

Many people are looking for tattoo artists with unique and distinctive tattoo styles to help them stand apart from the crowd. After all, isn’t part of the fun of having tattoos that you’re “different” in some way? Many artists are continuing to develop and evolve existing styles, but some artists are taking a different approach. One instance of a breakaway tattoo style is Trash Polka–a style that is bold and stands out in a crowd. In this article, we are going to discuss Trash Polka tattoo designs.

What are the meanings of  Trash polka tattoos:

Trash Polka is a style of tattoo art that began at Buena Vista Tattoo Club in Würzburg, Germany by Simone Plaff and Volko Merschky. The style resembles fine art collage in that it combines realistic images with smears, smudges, and kinetic designs that generate a discordant, chaotic look to the piece. Words are sometimes included. Trash Polka designs often reflect broader themes in much the same way as a fine art painting.

Trash Polka pieces are only done in red or black ink. According to Volko, this style is a combination of “realism and trash; 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”. It’s certainly an apt description and clearly, the artists behind the style have given it considerable thought. For that reason, they have claimed it as an (as of yet) unofficial trademark.

Trash Polka tattoos are only true Trash Polka if they come from the Buena Vista Tattoo Club shop, similar to how champagne isn’t actually champagne if it isn’t produced in the Champagne region of France. Naturally, that statement has gone relatively unnoticed as we’re beginning to see the style emerge here in the US.
