The Neotraditional tattoo style is intrinsically linked to the American Traditional or Old School. Neo means New, Neotraditional has to be understood as the new old school. Often called New School, it has been the style of the tattoo revolution introduced by pioneers and is still a very popular one.
Neotraditional tattoos share bold lines with the Traditional style adding a larger range of colours and shading. You can recognize the style with the very bright choice of colours and the freedom in the design. These are tattoos built to last, the strong outlines and colours blocks stand out well. Advances in techniques and technologies, better inks and more colours allows the best artists to keep the Old School bold line touch with the modern, urban touch that makes these tattoos vibrant and stunning for life.
