Neo Traditional Tattoos

Inspired by the traditional style of tattooing, the neo-traditional tattoo style pays homage to its roots by also making use of bold lines, bright colours, and minimal shading. Not to be confused with “new school” style, which is more cartoonish and exaggerated, the neo-traditional style is a revival and celebration of the traditional tattoo style, with a more in-depth colour palette and use of more diverse imagery.

Some of the most popular neo-traditional designs include images of skulls, eyes, roses, lighthouses, diamonds, coffins, doves, owls, lions, tigers, and wolves.
