Art Deco is an art movement that emerged in France in the 1920s. The style of Art Deco incorporates bold geometrical shapes, vivid colors and decorative ornamentation. The style was popular with poster artists and has become synonymous with absinthe, an hallucinogenic drink that was heavily advertised with beautiful Art Deco posters.
Art Deco tattoos are gaining popularity now, as vintage posters, fashions and other items are reintroduced into popular media. While some may call it “vintage chic”, many Art Deco tattoos stay true to the original art style, without being modernized by including visual styles that are currently popular.
