I consider 1991 the '80s anyway, if you're talking about pop culture.

no tattoos yet, the tattoo craze came later
IIRC the tattoo craze started around 1995 or so and really kicked off in the early 00s...

Farrah Fawcett "Faucet" necklace. I really wanted one at the time, but I would never wear one today. It was an actual faucet shape charm on a necklace.

Punk rocker hairstyles were popular even into the early 1990s (at least here in the SF Bay Area). A couple of my friends had them.

My sister also had a couple of punk type hairstyles. For a while she shaved one side of her head extremely short, like a crew cut, and kept the rest of her hair long, similar to Cindi Lauper's hairstyle in the 80s, and she had portions of her hair colored red. Later on she shaved all her hair short except for her bangs which she kept long, and she bleached the ends of her bangs with hydrogen peroxide.
