11 Tramp Stamp Tattoo Ideas to Usher in Their Inevitable Return

Forgive the pejorative terminology, but the divisive tattoo is making a comeback in the sex positive era.

Of all the Y2K trends that are currently making a comeback, the tramp stamp may be the most surprising. The tattoo placement basically personified the hypersexualization our favorite early 2000s icons like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Drew Barrymore. But much like Britney’s treatment by the media, we’re looking at lower back tattoos in 2021 through a different lens upon entering their revival era. In fact, there are already over 22 million views on the hashtag #TrampStamp on TikTok. Tramp stamps no longer bear the same stigma the moniker suggests, they are back and looking cooler and more personal than ever.

Here’s some inspiration if you want to get involved, whether with permanent or temporary ink.
