Eye & Skull Tattoo in Realistic Trash Polka Type Tattoo Inked By Black Poison Tattoos

Eye & Skull Tattoo in Realistic Trash Polka Type Tattoo

Eye & Skull Tattoo in Realistic Trash Polka Type Tattoo

The term refers to tattoo subgenre Realism and to a music piece of Austrian musician Johann Strauss II called “Tritsch Tratsch Polka”, which the couple liked. Shortened in Trash Polka by the fans and disciples, it soon caught the eyes of the tattoo and art community with its bold, even violent style.
Indeed, the genre is highly recognizable and is either loved or hated. Mixing both bold and fine black lines, grey shadings and dramatic touches of bright colors, mostly red, it looks more like a collage of various elements which, by all apparences, are not directly linked, and meaningless.

Realistic Trash Polka pieces often focus on realistic images, portraits coming from cinema, fashion and horror movies. Most of the pieces are showing beautiful ladies next to skulls. The perfection of those portraits contrasts with a chaotic composition, mixing blood or paint stains, drips, brush strokes and geometrical designs. Intertwined with the designs, are words, which look like letters cut from newspapers, or typewrited texts . The result is discordant yet aesthetically pleasing, reminding of the daring style of German contemporary graffiti art.

One thing to remember. Realistic Trash Polka is a trademark only Buena Vista Tattoo Club owns, but of course it didn’t prevent other artists to be inspired by the concept. First geographically limited to Eastern Europe but now spreading, even in Asia, you could always find someone to do a average copy of it. But of course, it doesn’t take only black and red ink to make real Trash Polka. It does need talent.‬

Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin, KBE was an English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the silent era.

Few Quotes by Charlie Chaplin

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.
Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
We think too much and feel too little.
A day without laughter is a day wasted.
Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles.
All I need to make a comedy is a park, a policeman and a pretty girl.
In the end, everything is a gag.
A man’s true character comes out when he’s drunk.
The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.
Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.
