Traditional style tattoos, also known as American traditional or old school tattoos, are a type of tattoo art that originated in the early 1900s. These tattoos were heavily influenced by tattoo-artist like Sailor Jerry and Doc Forrest.

Traditional style tattoos are characterized by bold, black outlines, limited colour palette, and iconic designs such as anchors, roses, eagles, and religious symbols.

Traditional style tattoos have a timeless look and they are known for standing the test of time, maintaining the same look as the day they were done 10 years on.
