Going into 2020, none of us expected we'd be where we are now. In fact, many of you were probably looking forward to all the tattoos you'd be getting in 2020 (in addition to the events you'd attend, parties you'd throw and cities you'd travel to). However, the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything and the tattoo community was hit hard.

During lock down, artists weren't permitted to work and thousands of shops around the country have closed their doors permanently because of that. But, when the restrictions were lifted, tattooers came back and they came back hard. When the tattooers went back to work, they gave us some of the best tattoos we've ever seen. We've curated 50 of the best (according to your feedback on social media) tattoos of 2020 and they're reflective of the beautiful diversity found in this industry. These tattoos come from artists around the world and depict a myriad of distinctive, yet epic styles.

Take a look at the gallery below to check out YOUR favorite 50 tattoos of 2020, then let us know in the comments section on social media your favorite piece of the bunch. And let's hear it for 2021, a year where there will be even more epic ink!
