Neo Traditional = Brilliant and dramatic colors, often in tones that recall Victorian velvets or East Coast hues of October’s fall leaves, merged with lavish details like pearls and fine lace: this is often what comes to mind when one thinks of Neo-Traditional tattoos. Perhaps the lushest and extravagant aesthetic in the tattoo community, this particular style blends the techniques of Traditional American tattooing with a rich history of arts and crafts. In this guide, we examine the history, influences, and artists who call the Neo Traditional method part of their own.
Traditional American = tattoo originated with the work of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins. American traditional tattoo style is as a mix of symbolism, animal totems, nautical imagery, war themes, and nods to tattoo tradition stretching back even before Sailor Jerry’s time, including Japanese tattoos, Polynesian and Native American influences.
