Boombox tattoos are a fun choice for any music lover who also happens to be a hardcore ink addict! Stylistically, this can be a really fun subject for the artist, too.
Whether drawn in a more traditional hand or given the new-school treatment, there are so many style choices to choose from to create an inspiring piece of art.
Often done in black and grey tones, boombox tattoos really pop with some color.
By playing with perspective and even the position of the tattoo on the body, a simple boombox can add a lot of visual interest to a person’s ink collection. Whether part of a bigger music themed scene or standing on its own, the vibes conveyed by a boombox are nearly universal: good tunes, good friends, good times – all of this and more are immediately brought to mind at the sight of any music related piece, but especially a boombox.
Though a boombox is a rather modern piece of equipment, it’s now simultaneously considered an old-school relic from the age of the birth of genres such as hip hop and punk. It is at once a symbol steeped in nostalgia and innovation, and a great choice for a tattoo.
