15-20 years ago, seeing a face tattoo in the wild was quite a rare and shocking experience. Now it’s basically a daily occurrence for those of us in major metropolitan areas. And we definitely have celebrities to thank for that.
In the mid-2000s, a few rappers had visible face tattoos, including The Game, Lil Wayne, and Gucci Mane. Now, getting a face tattoo almost seems like a prerequisite to making it big in hip-hop. Over the past few years, many hip-hop artists have been covered in ink from forehead to chin, from Post Malone to XXXTentacion to Lil Peep and Lil Pump. Even pop stars like Justin Bieber have gotten face tattoos.
It’s a major tattoo trend that shows no signs of slowing down and has certainly caught on with non-musicians. Face tattoos are becoming more common in stores around the world, which leaves us with mixed feelings. On the one hand, we like to see the acceptance of tattooing. On the other hand, we want collectors to make smart and informed decisions when tattooing their face.
