Trash Polka is a tattoo style that was invented by two Germans named Volker Merschky and Simone Pfaff, in 1998. Trash Polka tattoos have become popular lately as more and more people around the world are showing interest in inking their bodies with a design as unique as Trash Polka. The design is a mix of fine art and some trashy lines, smears, smudges, and strokes. The Trash Polka art is like drawing a beautiful piece of art on the body and then spoiling it with unappealing designs. Check these 12 Trash Polka tattoo designs that give you a visual idea about this unique tattoo trend.
1.This Trash Polka Tattoo On Chest

This photo clearly explains what exactly a Trash Polka tattoo is. Apparently, you can see the pictorial references to a bird, a couple of helicopters, and some flowers. Evidently, the beautiful art within the tattoo has been trashed by those unsightly straight lines stroked across the body. If you find those lines ugly, then Trash Polka tattoos aren't for you! As said earlier, a Trash Polka tattoo is nothing but a stained piece of art on the body. Trash Polka art looks appealing for many people, and that is the reason why these tattoos have gained some popularity in the recent years.

2.Full Back Trash Polka Tattoo

Apart from a bird and flowers, nothing is clearly visible in this tattoo. If you are wondering about the possible meaning of the tattoo, let us tell you that Trash Polka body art doesn't convey a particular message. It's very hard and nearly impossible to interpret an implication out of many Trash Polka designs. Every Trash Polka tattoo has a universal meaning, which is depicting two sides of everything such as happiness and sadness, fortune and misery, wealth and poverty, etc. This Trash Polka tat on the back looks good, and just scroll down to see more such fascinating and inspiring tattoo designs.

3.Another Trash Polka Tattoo On Back And Hands

This tattoo looks impressive, as the wearer apparently had chosen geometric shapes over amorphous strokes or smears. As you can see, the three striking things in this tattoo are birds, flowers, and that Spanish quote, "Amame Como Soy." The sentence roughly translates to "Love me as I'm" in English. And yes, we have to tilt our head a little bit toward the right to read that quote. The rule of thumb is that you should tattoo a quote vertically so that it becomes easy for people to understand. Since Trash Polka designs don't follow standard body art rules, it is safe to assume that this tattoo looks perfect in every sense.

4.This Simple Trash Polka On The Hand

Want to get a Trash Polka but don't want a huge tattoo? Then, this small and straightforward tattoo should be your choice. Apparently, it's a black rose with dabs of red color on it. Remember, a genuine Trash Polka has only two colors, red and black. A body art can't be called a Trash Polka if it has more than these two colors. Tattoo artists around the world are experimenting with other colors, which is something clearly against the norms set by Volko Merschky and Simone Pfaff of Buena Vista Tattoo Club, Germany. As said earlier, the couple invented the Trash Polka tattoo style in 1998.

5.This Trash Polka Design As Side Tattoo

The tat is a bit difficult to understand, and upon a close inspection, we figured out that to be a Latin phrase, "Mea Culpa." The Latin phrase is an English equivalent of "Through my fault." Mea Culpa tattoos are usually worn by people who made a mistake and acknowledged the fact that they were wrong. This tattoo looks good, but the only two downsides are that the girl in the picture needs to get near naked to show off her tattoo to people. Furthermore, the font looks a bit clumsy as well.

6.This Trash Polka Thigh Tattoo

That body art looks a bit creepy, but it shows that a Trash Polka tattoo can have anything as a form of art from flowers and birds to blood and gore. A lot of tattoo enthusiasts around the world believe that a tattoo can be called a Trash Polka only when someone gets it at the Buena Vista Tattoo Club in Germany. Even though many tattoo artists in the world are experts at Trash Polka designs, a lot of people still travel all the way to Germany for an authentic Trash Polka tattoo.

7.A Trash Polka Tattoo On Feet

Trash Polka designs look good anywhere on the body, including feet. This feet tattoo looks exquisite, and perhaps, this is the best Trash Polka we have seen so far on this topic. The reason we called it best is that it clearly highlights the core essence of Trash Polka design, which is highlighting two contradicting elements such as life and death in a single form of art. The tattoo is easy to understand, and it's neatly done as well. If you are exploring Trash Polka design ideas, this body art certainly deserves your attention.

8.This Trash Polka Clock

It appears to be a small tattoo, but it isn't. Visibly, it occupied a good portion of the lower abdomen. The tattoo looks good overall, but that those red smears on the top of clock art look like a bad skin bruise. The birds look good, but the black blotches around them kind of appear like patches of dirt. The highlight of this tattoo though is its meaning. The wearer conveyed the message, "Time flies," by cleverly using a clock and a bunch of flying birds.

9.This Trash Polka Tattoo On Chest

This tattoo seems to have a deep meaning. Going by the pictures of a photographer, buck, compass, and woodland, it gives us an impression that the wearer might have been an avid wildlife camper. Those red color smears that seem to replicate bloodstains might refer to a tragedy in their life. It isn't one of those visually beautiful tattoos, but it still stands out from the rest because of the way that person tried to tell a story using nothing but body art as a means.

10.This Creative Trash Polka Arm Tattoo

If we sorted these 12 tattoos based on creativity, this Trash Polka design would have gotten the top spot. Apparently, we can see a man, the heart, the brain, horns of a buck, and some blood smears. We didn't quite understand what kind of a message the wearer was trying to convey to the world, but the quote, "Revel in what you are," suggests that this tattoo is all about satisfaction, confidence, self-love, and self-respect. The tattoo looks a tad gory, though. Other than that, it's a beautiful body art.

11.This Unique Trash Polka Tattoo On Shoulder

The art is a creative infusion of a butterfly and key. The tattoo looks impressive, but it's hard to guess the motive that drove that girl into getting that tattoo. A butterfly is a sensitive living being, whereas a metal key is one of the hardest everyday things we usually see. Perhaps, that girl wanted to tell people that she was gentle and fierce at the same time! We have no idea what that tattoo means exactly, but this was the closest implication we thought of when we saw the tattoo.

12.This Impressive Trash Polka Hand Tattoo

Trash Polka tattoos look good on hands as well, and this art is a good example. This Trash Polka design lives up to its name because it indeed looks a bit trashy. The hand on the left has a tattoo machine as a tattoo! Micky Sharpz is a well-known American engineering company that makes tattoo machines. Why would anyone want to tattoo a tattoo machine? The idea sounds a bit weird, isn't it? We assume the wearer might be a passionate tattoo artist himself! What do you think?
