Trash Polka Tattoo Artist in Texas – Joel Wright
If you are searching for a trash polka tattoo artist near you and you live in Texas or nearby then you should know I am taking appointments. However you may want to travel here from further away like most of my clients do and that is fine too. I am inspired to do more of these and I am booking 1 and 2 day appointments for trash polka inspired tattoos now.
What is a Trash Polka Tattoo? Why such a strange name?
“Trash Polka is a style of tattoo art that began at Buena Vista Tattoo Club in Würzburg, Germany by Simone Plaff and Volko Merschky. The style resembles fine art collages in that in combines realistic images with smears, smudges, and kinetic designs that generate a discordant, chaotic look to the piece.”
This particular trash polka tattoo was inspired by Shambhala Buddhism. Yours can be themed however you like but keep in mind it tells a story with words, symbols, shapes, realistic designs, and is usually black, grey and red but you can of course use many colors.
Creative Process of a Trash Polka Tattoo Artist in Texas
I want you to have the luxury of seeing your design fully rendered in photoshop before you get it. Below is a pic the client sent me of his arm in order to do that!
As you can see the quality of his pic isn’t good lighting or in focus. I prefer a better pic but I made it work.

Here are some details about this appointment that you should know that may help you plan before you contact me. Trash polka tattoos like this one took a good bit of time. The first day I did the black and gray realism and that took about 6 hours. The second day was the bold graphic elements and color and that also took 6 hours.
Trash polka tattoo artist will vary in style somewhat and based on the complexity or simplicity of their work you can expect radically different time frames but now you know mine and how long this took. Size also matters so if you have a smaller or larger space that changes things quite a bit.
