Tattoo studios and Tattoo artists in Barcelona
TATTOO IN BARCELONA
If some years ago the tattoo was something much more exclusive and hard to understand, today It’s something totally normal and accepted.
In this post we will talk about the Tattoo in Barcelona, sharing with you some of the tattoo and tattoo studios in Barcelona. But before that we want to comment on how the tattoo culture has evolved up to the present, where the city of Barcelona stands out in relation to tattooing among other places in Spain
Evolution of the culture of the Tattoo
With the growing trend of tattooing, it seems increasingly common, or to say it another way, it is less rare to see more and more tattooed people. Undoubtedly, this is the most critical moment in tattoo culture, from the origins of what we know as a modern tattoo in the late XIX and early XX centuries.
Although there are references to the introduction of the tattoo in the Western world almost a century before, when English expeditionaries learned certain tattoo techniques upon their return from Tahiti, it will not be until the American Civil War when the tattoo begins its true evolution and expansion to such and as we know it today. Besides that, and taking up again the current moment the tattoo lives in our days, one could speak of an exponential growth in the last ten / fifteen years until now, where not only the number of artists (tattooists) has multiplied and so number of studios or tattoo shops where to get them. Logically, the number of users, clients, or whatever they want to call them that they want to be marked with ink; It remains to be proven whether by fashion cause is trendy or truly by fascination and passion from our point of view, a way of understanding life, a philosophy that has become industry in a very short time. Undoubtedly the evolution of modern tattoo has to do with the evolution of an industry that in recent years has not stopped growing, being especially beneficial for some people.
It will be in the United States from where this evolution and expansion has become more evident, crossing borders and spreading globally. Even in Spain, the tattoo today has acquired a following and importance that a few years ago seemed impossible and much of that boom we owe it to cities like Madrid or Barcelona, places where the tattoo came to never leave.
