Tattoos with vintage microphones can be cool and all, but why is that all I see for the most part when I check out someone's mic-related tattoo? I want musicians to know that there is more to tattoo designs beyond that vintage look. So many modern microphone styles will look amazing when it comes to body art. If you like vintage, that's fine; but don't limit yourself if you don't have to!
There are also more unique designs out there besides the design of the mic. The size of the design can vary depending on where you plan to place your tattoo. I want to share some ideas that you could use that won't look like the same thing that other musicians are walking around with. If you want designs that will wow people who see them and really reflect your love for music, check these out!
Small mic tats work great for spots like your arm, your hand, your neck, or your leg. This is a good idea for those who want a simplistic mic design that will express their love for music without being too showy. Sometimes, simple can be better!
A lot of singers and rappers like to get a medium-sized mic tattoo on their upper arm or somewhere around the middle. This is where I often see vintage tattoos that don't have any uniqueness to them. Again, I like the vintage look, and I've included some of them in my ideas, but there are more types you can choose from.
Full sleeve mic tattoos allow you to add more elements to your design, which can include musical instruments or studio equipment. This is a good choice for those who want something that is far from simple to express their love for music. I mostly found vintage mic styles for these, though!
Like full sleeves, back tats or chest tats with microphone designs allow you more creative freedom with your ideas. You can add more instruments, add hearts, add words, or almost anything that you want to add along with the mic. You could also do a small and simple design in these places if you want!
Microphone tats look great with instruments, but I think they pair best with a cool design of music notes along with them. Here are some music note styles in addition to cool mic designs that you could use for inspiration when it comes to your future tattoo.
