Traditional Tattoos

Traditional Tattoos, also called Classic or Old School tattoos, are a throwback to an earlier style that utilized a narrow selection of colors. Traditional tattoos are bold and iconic, and are characterized by:
  • Bold, black outlines
  • Very little shading
  • Spot colors: green, yellow, red (occasionally blue or brown)
Popular traditional designs include naval or armed forced emblems, pin-up girls, heart and daggers, swallows, roses, eagles, and Harley Davidson symbols. Most include a banner or ribbon, with relevant lettering.
