At arm’s length: are tattoos finally becoming uncool?

Thursday 08:05 GMT

Some are wondering if tattoos have finally gone mainstream, jumped the shark (one of Levine’s tattoos is actually of a shark), or even become uncool.

“You can go back to 1880, and even probably beforehand,” says Dr Matt Lodder, a tattoo expert and lecturer in art history at the University of Essex, “and there are articles about ‘Now tattoos are middle class’, or ‘Shock horror, women are getting tattoos now’, or whatever it may be.” Lodder, whose exhibition British Tattoo Art Revealed is touring the UK, adds that while “more people are getting tattoos than ever”, another reason they seem more common is that in 2019 we all have the freedom to show more skin than in, say, the 1950s.
