Old school tattoos
Old-school tattoos are rooted in the American serviceman’s interpretation of traditions and symbols that go back thousands of years. Every tattoo is a personal statement
Legend of the swallow tattoo
Another legend holds that since swallows return to the same location every year to mate and nest, the swallow will guarantee the sailor returns home safely. A sailor would have one swallow tattooed before setting out on a journey, and the second swallow tattooed at the end of their tour of duty, upon return to their home port.
The last couple of years vintage tattoos have been gaining popularity up to a point where we can call them trendy. The old school tattoo designs are being adopted by a younger crowd. Sailor tattoos are no longer the sole property of a certain subculture, like they used to be.
The old school tattoos might be the same, but the feeling around them is different. Nowadays, these older tattoo designs are worn with a sense of irony. The vintage tattoos are appreciated for their timeless appeal.
