16 Cool Rockabilly Tattoos You Need To See Right Now

Tattoos are pretty in right now. Of course, you probably don’t even need me to tell you this because, chances are, you’ve already noticed this in a big way. Tattoos are not only in, they’re practically everywhere right now, from armpit tattoos to tiny finger tattoos to Harry Potter tattoos. And, with all of these tattoo concepts swarming around, hardly anyone could blame you if you were looking into getting one yourself. Looking for some inspiration? You might want to look into rockabilly tattoos.

“Rockabilly,” if you aren’t familiar, is an early style of rock and roll music that blends country music with blues. (Think Johnny Cash.) This music is also associated with a distinct sartorial style that involves 1950s pinup-type clothes with a decidedly “edgy” vibe to it–which, of course, involves tattoos. (Think “I Kissed A Girl”-era Katy Perry.)

Anyway, rockabilly tattoos are pretty unavoidable on Pinterest right now, and, while they might not be for everyone–no one could ever call most of them “subtle,” that’s for sure–they’re definitely worth looking into if you want to make a statement. So, check out these cool Rockabilly tattoos that might just inspire you to get one:
