The style

The Neo-Traditional tattoo style is becoming increasingly popular due to it's aesthetic appeal.

Also refered to as New Traditional, this styles focuses on more natural shapes and gradients. It recuperates some of the Old School imagery while incorporating new patriotic imaginarium, such as Native Americans, portraits and skulls. It also respects the Old School’s technical ways: with dark outlines, but cleaner; using a limited range of colors, but using them more precisely; exploring the 2D visuals, but with improved techniques.

It incorporates influences from the artistic movements of the early 20th century, such as Art Nouveau and Art Deco, and focuses on beauty, drawing an equilibrium between illustration and realism.
