Beginning in the mid to late 90′s a new trend in tattoos started to emerge. These were generally somewhat large sprawling tattoos across the lower back of women. Enter the “tramp stamp”. Popularity of this tattoo trend has continued to grow throughout the years and even more slang words for this tattoo style emerged such as; California Liscence Plates, Arse Antlers, and even Slag Tags.
As you can probably attain from the names for this tattoo that there is a great deal of sexual inuendo that a tramp stamp. Popular culture has taken this tattoo fad and pasted its own spin like in the movie Wedding Crashers ; ““See that tattoo on the lower back? It might as well be a bull’s eye.”
There may be some more factors behind this tattoo trend as lower back tattoos are usually designed to accent the natural figure of a woman and is less seceptable to stretching if a person goes through various weight changes.
The same care and consiteration should be taken in the decision to get a tramp stamp as any other tattoo. Remember.. your new tattoo will be there forever, so choose wisely.
