Old School Tattoo

Extras - Issue 22

Old School tattoo aka Traditional American beyond popular, is one of the "basic" tattoo styles. The thick outline, the clear presence of black, which is usually combined with bold colours - limited palette - the great history and the timeless charm of the tattoo flash, make it classic. The roots of the Old School tattoo are in America where the genre became popular from 1920 onwards, mainly by sailors and the military in general. The Old School tattoo is undoubtedly an enduring value. Nowadays, Old School remains popular due to its aesthetics and it is timely as its themes and their semiotics refer to timeless symbols. HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine presents thirty-two old school tattoos by equally numbered different Greeks tattooers.
