With the pandemic came a wave of growth to the stick and poke niche. Therefore, over the last 12 months, it should come as no surprise that the stick and poke tattoo has become one of the most popular beauty trends. The growth has been so significant, stick and poke tattoos have generated a cult-like following, with celebrities and influencers all sporting the DIY trend.
Unfortunately, many people only see the poor DIY tattoos. This leads them to dismiss the trend as a naff gimmick that's poorly done. The truth is, they couldn't be more wrong.
Due to the recent growth of the DIY trend, more and more talented artists are entering the space. This has lead to a very bright future for the scene. Not only that, but people have become obsessed with the sweet and intimate affair that stick and poke's provide to tattoo aficionados. Yes, it takes much longer than machine designs, but that's the whole point!
Don't get us wrong, we weren't fully convinced that stick and poke's would remain popular to the wider market once the pandemic has finished. However, the tattoo market has been disrupted for so long. There's no reason why the trend won't continue for years to come. Let's face it, with Covid restricting people from getting the tattoos they want, stick and poke have driven a new trend to try out designs yourself.
Its also a popular belief that DIY tattoos aren't safe. However, if you've read our previous blogs, you'll know the risks are pretty small if the right safety precautions are met. Despite this, these so called 'risks' aren't stopping young people from wanting them.
Ultimately, whether it's for the style, cost, or experience. You simply can't compare the two. Professional tattoos and stick and pokes aren't the same.
It's its own thing entirely.
