Traditional tattoos, or as they are sometimes called, 'old school tattoos', are the backbone of modern western tattooing. First showing up in the western world around the 1900's, they still remain as popular today over 100 years later. If you are looking for a bold colourful tattoo that will never go out of style you cant go past a trad tattoo.
