INK & COFFEE

Recently, I have noticed a trend between coffee lovers and ink lovers alike. I feel whenever I go into a coffee shop, there is guaranteed to always be at least one heavily tattooed barista, and most likely multiple tattooed customers.

Is there a reason behind people being addicted to both caffeine and tattoos?

It was only around 4 years ago that Starbucks staff were given permission to actually show off their tattoos. Before then, their ink had to be hidden as best as possible.

Some coffee enthusiasts actually have coffee related tattoos, where as others have ink completely unrelated. Either way, the whole aesthetic is just so cool to me. Coffee shop vibes and people bonding and chatting over their newest and most favourite tattoos on their bodies. What more could you want?

Most people believe the trend between coffee and tattoos stems from the fact that a lot of people working in coffee shops are of a certain age – between 20-35.

It’s no secret that getting lots of ink is becoming increasingly popular with the younger generations, so it makes perfect sense. Also, it seems a lot of people working in the coffee industry are quite quirky and punk, so again the correlation is understandable.

Electric Ink Skincare have taken the love of both coffee and ink to the next level – Electric Ink Travel Mugs.

They are available with 3 different Tom Gilmour illustrations adorning the front and proudly show off the Electric Ink Tattoo Care brand. There’s a Panther, All Seeing Eye and an awesome Butterfly. I literally can’t decide which I love the most!

Not only are these travel mugs super handy for the commute into work, they also help to save the environment as you don’t need to get yet another paper/plastic cup on your next coffee run. Just ask the barista to make your fave coffee in your new cool ceramic travel mug!

Say no to paper cups, say yes to saving the environment.

If you work in the coffee industry, I’d be so intrigued to hear your take on this and if you have any tattoos, what do you have?
