I get that tattoos are a form of expression but they are so damn mainstream now. It seems like everyone and their momma has at least one. I have 2 friends who don't have any but everyone else I know has em. Even my mother has one.

If I had to peg a year, I would say about 2008. It seems like more and more celebs started getting them and they become something you seen on most people. I don't consider just tattoos being a trend but the actual tattoo design itself. Like having tats that mean something to you is different than seeing some arrow or something on someone's arm and saying, that's cool I want that!

I don't think it has ever been a trend. It is just that "trendy" people have made it more of a mainstream thing. There are still plenty of people who don't get them or only have one or two very small ones that are almost always hidden under clothing.
