Spice Girls, Nintendo, the Macarena...if you lived through the 90's, these pop culture phenomenons are burned into your memory...and hopefully they make you feel a twinge of nostalgia for the utter weirdness of that time. As we speed through 2019, we take a look back at some of our favorite 90's tattoos since they are perfect embodiments of all the things we truly loved, and sometimes hated, about that era. From sticky sweet bubble gum pop tunes to the cute but kind of evil Furby, check out this collection of 90's tattoos and feel the whisper of the past.
Depending on how old you were during the 90's there are many different things you could remember...a million AOL free trial cd's, the emergence of the internet, platform shoes and mini skirts, pop hits like Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time" and Whitney Houston's heart struck ballad "I Will Always Love You". You may also remember old school Cartoon Network's Powerpuff Girls and Dexter's Lab, and Nickelodeon's Rocko's Modern Life and Hey Arnold. Maybe you were more of the Friends or Buffy the Vampire Slayer kind of person...but you certainly remember Clarissa Explains it All, Dogma, and Daria...tons of video games like Mario and Sonic...all of these pieces of pop culture probably immediately take you back to a certain place and time.
What is funny for people who actually lived through that particular time, enough to remember it, is the fact that so many aspects of that time and place are resurfacing in pop culture now. MTV announced last year that Daria would be making a comeback. Netflix put out a trailer for a brand new series based on The Dark Crystal...and Urban Outfitters started selling t-shirts with old school icons like Sailor Moon and Aaliyah on them! It's sort of ironic, Alanis Morissette would agree, to see as ten year old teeny bopper dressed up like Baby Spice...we'd rather kick it authentic and old school with the collectors who picked up these rad 90's tattoos.
