Sneaker Tattoos Bangkok

Sneakers have come a long way, both culturally and design wise, since their very humble beginnings almost 100 years ago

Initially a practical piece of footwear, they have evolved into a cultural phenomenon that transcends generations and cultures

It’s little wonder that people have been expressing their love for sneakers through various different means, including using them as a subject for a tattoo

In this article, we will look into the history of sneakers, the culture of “sneakerheads”, why people might want to get a sneaker tattoo and some of the different styles

 

The History of Sneakers

The word “sneakers” comes from their rubber soles which allowed the wearer to “sneak” around without making noise

The first sneaker was created in 1917 by the Converse Rubber Shoe Company

The sneaker, called the All-Star, was designed originally for basketball players and in 1936 became the official shoe of the NBA

In the 1960s sneakers became popular in youth culture and were seen by many as a symbol of rebellion

The rise of hip-hop culture in the 1980s really popularized them in the public consciousness, as fans and rappers themselves used flashy and expensive sneakers to show off their style

Today, sneakers are a multi-billion dollar industry and an integral part of streetwear culture with many people collecting, trading and wearing sneakers from the everyday, to special limited edition or rare models

 

What are Sneakerheads?

A sneakerhead is someone who is passionate about sneakers

They often collect sneakers, attend sneaker conventions, follow releases and spend a lot of time and money on their hobby

Sneakerheads are known for their extensive knowledge of sneakers, including the culture and history surrounding them

Sneaker culture has spawned the creation of things like “sneaker bots” and “sneaker cook groups” which are online communities where people share information and knowledge and often help each other to buy limited edition models

 

Why Might Someone Want a Sneaker Tattoo?

For many, sneakers are more than just something to wear on your feet

They represent their personality, style, and sometimes even values

Getting a sneaker tattoo can be a way for people to express their love for sneakers and everything they represent

A sneaker tattoo can also be a reminder of a particular time or memory

Perhaps a person’s first pair of special sneakers was a gift from a loved one, or they were wearing a particular pair during an important even in their life

 

Different Styles of Sneaker Tattoos

There are many different styles of sneaker tattoos and the choice really depends on personal preference

Some popular styles include:

 

Realistic Sneaker Tattoos

This style aims to create a tattoo that looks similar to a photograph of the sneaker. It requires a skilled artist to capture all of the elements and details, from the laces to the texture of the material

 

Neo Traditional Sneaker Tattoos

This style is categorized by bold lines, bright colors and often exaggerated proportions

 

Sketchy Style Sneaker Tattoos

This style looks like a drawing of a pair of sneakers and often uses a technique known as “whip shading” to create details in the tattoo

These are just a few of the many styles of sneaker tattoos you could get

Not everything translates well to a tattoo, this is why you want to ensure you are working with a studio that can go through your ideas and suggest what they think will work best
