Traditional Style Tattoo

Traditional style tattoo has been around since the dawn of tattooing and is a trademark look all around the world. When someone spots the bold lines, bright colors and iconic designs that often accompanies the trademark style, it is a surefire way to spot a traditional tattoo. Known for iconic flash designs like the roses, anchors, and gorgeous lady heads, traditional style tattoos are perfect for those who want something simple yet aesthetic. Here at The Black Hat, James is particularly known for his old school, traditional tattoos. Focusing on every client’s project like it were his own, one can easily get lost in James’s vibrant portfolio of traditional designs.

Neo-Traditional Designs

Another subset of traditional style tattooing is neo-traditional designs. This tattoo style is focused on embracing and paying homage to traditional tattoos by borrowing the elements of bold lines and the recognizable color palettes, but also integrating more dimensional and innovative designs. Think of it as putting a spin on things while also paying homage to the past. Neo-traditional designs are also quite popular around Dublin. With its roots embedded in the traditional American theme, neo-traditional designs are a hit for those who wish to blend animation with realism.

Watercolor Style Tattoos

Watercolor style, like traditional and neo-traditional, focuses on an aesthetic design with a variety of colors. The style is in extremely high demand. If done correctly, watercolor designs can give the appearance of pastel art on human skin. Watercolor tattoos are all about mixing artistic vision with a beautiful color palette to create a one-of-a-kind tattoo for the client.

If you are looking for a design that’s as real as it gets, look no further than realism designs. As the name suggests, realism tattoos focus on bringing pictures and artistry to life-based on replicating or creating a real-life depiction of anything imaginable.
