In our time, when sometimes it seems that everything has long been invented and invented, almost every year there are new and new styles of tattoos. Trash Polka is a vivid example of this. This trend in the art of tattooing arose relatively recently, but managed to win the hearts of millions of fans.
Main Features of Style
Tattoos in the style of thrash polka seem at first sight to be repulsive and frightening. Death and the afterlife, ghosts and skeletons, anatomical details, mystical undead in the form of a pattern on the body - all this can not but draw attention. Sensations from what they see are similar to watching the most crazy "horror movie", which frightens to a cold sweat, and does not allow you to return to a safe reality, tearing yourself away from the screen. What can we do, these are the properties of the human psyche, thanks to which we are so attracted by the terrible and shocking.
No less important than the plot, is the manner of execution. Accuracy, high detail, attention to detail are the main features of thrash polka. From this, the images seem even more frightening, because the tattoos performed by a good master really look very realistic.
Subjects for a tattoo
The range of images that are used to create a trash polka tattoo is quite wide. But if this heart is blood-red, anatomically correct. If the butterfly is sitting on the empty scalp. If the flower is a spiked rose, flooded with oil or dense blood.
Often, among the works of the best masters, you can see Death-dressed in rags, high stained-glass windows of Gothic cathedrals, grave-funeral paraphernalia, cold and firearms and army indigo weapons, fragments of human and animal skeletons, fluttering drapery of shrouds.
Tattoos in the style of thrash polka - it is almost always a collage, collected from several images. Surely both the master and the owner invest a certain meaning in the image, although today in the circles of connoisseurs it is not accepted to take the values of tattoos too seriously. But, as in most cases with frightening images, which we often see in tribal, biker, army tattoos and many other styles, the same logic can be traced here. According to her, the "horror stories" put on the body protect the owner from evil spirits, troubles and misfortunes, frightening off negative energy and hostile forces.
Classics is the red-black scale, most of the work is done in it. But sometimes you can find much more complex in terms of color tattoos.
Trash Polka is a style in which any gloomy shades can be used: dark green, purple, deep blue, burgundy, mustard-brown. But bright, pastel and luminescent colors in the works of artists who create in this style, it is unlikely to be seen.
Places of application
As in the case with other directions, it all depends on the size of the sketch. Realistic performance requires a certain space, so we can often see images in large open spaces: on the chest, shoulders, back, abdomen. Not too rare is the trash-polka tattoo on the arm (male). Women are more likely to have a pattern on the legs, hips, upper abdomen under the breast.
The target audience
It would seem that a harsh topic primarily attracts brutal bearded, but, oddly enough, among the lovely ladies, you can also often see thrash-polka fans.
Women's tattoos differ from men's with great grace, but they are just as frightening and attractive.
What you need to remember before going to the salon
Whichever sketch you choose, there are a number of rules. If you want your tattoo in the style of thrash polka to quickly heal and preserve the presentable appearance for a long time, do not show any initiative at all. Listen, better write down everything the master says, and strictly follow his advice. With any image in realistic technology, you need to be particularly delicate, otherwise the drawing will simply float. Therefore, in advance, find out what preparation and dressing material you need to buy, and get everything you need before you apply the tattoo. Remember: no popular "proven" means can cope with the task better than the drug recommended by a specialist.
If you will take care of the tattoo the way the master advises, it will quickly and painlessly heal, and in the future will delight you with its unique aesthetics for more than one year.
