Traditional Style Tattoos

The tattoo art is linked with the unmistakable iconography that became so popular during the 1950s (but even earlier!) in some parts of America and then spread to Europe: the so called traditional style! You surely do know what we’re talking about.

Traditional is a clear, easy-to-read style which occupies a major space in the history of tattoo, giving rise to its derivations and continually enriched by shapes and stylistic features.

The most well-known and best loved subjects of the Traditional Style are daggers, roses, tigers, panthers, eagles, and snakes, but also sweet women faces, hearts and lettering, sexy pin-ups, vessels… and many more.
