27 Charming Trippy Tattoos

Trippy Tattoos are by products of Hippy culture, which took roots in the mid sixties in the United States of America, before spreading its tentacles to other parts of the world. These hippies imbibed some of the counter cultural values, listened to psychedelic rock, swayed to the beats of trance music and created their own unique cult values of awareness and revolution.

The artists who do these tattoos listen to the trippy music and paint what they hear. As a result, these tattoos are abstract and have several interpretations. Dragons, fishes and sometimes cosmic patterns add a totally different perspective to these tattoos.Trance music on which these designs are mostly based upon, are characterized by repetitive musical phrases which alternate between high and low tempos. Trance music or LSD symbolizes hallucinations or distorting reality from what it is . These tattoos are all about making a rebellious statement during outdoor parties when barriers come down and a generous amount of flesh is displayed. In recent times however, these tattoos sometimes symbolize the innate spirituality and inner quest of the wearer.
